Tag Trade by Morgan Mandel

Ever since the Murder Must Advertise egroup decided to focus on tags for their Amazon books, I've been obsessed with amassing tags and reciprocating the favor. The effort does seem to pay off in more sales, judging from the jump in mine during the period when this was taking place.

If you haven't tagged your Amazon book yet, you're missing out on some great free publicity.

Please contact me at with Tag Trade in the subject line, if you'd wish to do a tag trade on a mystery or thriller. First, make sure you've already added your tags.

I only have a very few exceptions to those I won't tag, which I'd explain in a reply if needs be.

Hi Morgan. I'm interested in this tag trade idea. Forgive my ignorance, but I'm not sure what you mean to make sure to have my tag(s)posted, and what exactly do you mean by tag (book cover?). Please advise. THANKS!

I'm not sure I know what this all means either, but I'm interested.

Your post also reminds me that I still have your book to read. I bought it a while back. I'm behind with others, too! But congrats on its sales so far!!

Betty Ann, I sent you an email about how to do tags.

Maybe I better explain it here also. If you're book is on Amazon, scroll down to the area below the review section and look for something that says Tags, then put descriptive words there to show what kind of book you have, such as mystery, suspense, or maybe even if it includes a hobby, such as knitting, then you'd put down knitting. You can put 15 of them in all. After you put yours down, then I can come over and check the boxes I agree with. The more good tags, the better.

Thanks for buying my book, Ann! It's always nice to know who the people are that buy it. I hope you like it. I know what you mean about being behind on reading. I read at breakfast and before going to bed, and am lucky to finish a book in a week or so.

I have to reread your info about tagging at BBT group. I haven't done anything about it yet.
