Book Town Revamp



Every few years we make changes to our site in order to improve its content and functionality. You will notice some changes immediately while others will occur over the next few weeks. Several of these changes were based on the recommendations of our members. 



For those who are book reviews,  Book Reviews and Nurture your books will be discontinued


Audiobooks will be revamped to make it more user friendly. 

The Resources page will also be updated 

In addition, due to requests from members, posts will be limited to three per day.  We are adding a new Facebook page where members can post book promotions, book giveaways, book discounts, book trailers, social media interviews, and personal appearances. Limit 4 posts daily. 


Beginning Friday excerpts posted on our book excerpts page will be reposted on our Facebook page. 


We are looking for guest bloggers. 


More changes will be posted in the near future.

Although, later on down the road there will be changes made to BookTown depending upon how Ning will proceed when it comes to the Nings that are left behind. Thank You, The Mayor and Deputy Mayor of BookTown
