And for those of you wondering how we select Staff Picks, way back when the blog first started, we explained the Book of the Week process. It applies to our Staff Picks as well. We look for innovative use of BookSmart, uniqueness of subject matter, diverse representation of our bookstore categories, and quality. Each week we look at every new title in the Blurb Bookstore, and we select from that pool. We then list our new Staff Picks on most Wednesdays. It’s absolutely one of the favorite parts of our job.
Keep in mind, the bookstore is only one of many ways to promote your book. Our Announce and Badge tools continue to help Blurbarians generate buzz around their books. And, as always, let us know what you think about our latest Bookstore changes by sending us feedback, either with our private feedback form, or by leaving a comment below.
