Troy Posted July 21, 2016 Report Share Posted July 21, 2016 I ran into Grant Harper Reid at the Harlem Book fair last Saturday. A couple of years ago we published, a review of his book Rythm for Sale. I asked him to link to his page on AALBC.com and he did it immediately--from his homepage (screen shot below). I often lament the fact that reciprocal links (I link to your website and you link to mine) is a thing of the past--replaced by a drive to gather as many fans, followers, and likes on social media. I've always asserted this change in our collective behavior has weakened mission driven independent sites and strengthened revenue driven corporate sites. As the handful of massive sites gain strength and indie die off, the world web web becomes a less interesting place. But I sense the tide is changing as authors like Grant are much more willing to link to something other than Amazon and social media sites. Author Jewell Parker Rhodes supports and links to the bookseller Indiebound in her campaigns with us. Rhodes goes out her way to support indie platforms... There is hope for us after all 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
