We just made D2D Author Pages even better with Custom Carousels

Back in March 2018 we introduced something pretty cool—our D2D Author Pages and D2D Book Tabs. These are your “homepage away from home” online, giving readers a way to discover your books and connect with you on your blog or social media, or even join your mailing list. They came pre-loaded with a lot of great features to help readers find and fall in love with your books.

Never one to be idle for long, we’ve been working behind the scenes to make D2D Author Pages even more useful. That’s why we’re very excited to announce Custom Carousels!

Now you can rename, rearrange, and reorganize your book series carousels to fit your personal preference.

With Custom Carousels you can:

  • Create new series carousels and name them anything you like
  • Rearrange carousels to put your preferred series up top (or in any order)
  • Create promotional carousels, such as “First in Series FREE” or even a holiday collection
  • Build curated collections, preferred reading orders, or anything your creative mind can think of!

To give you an idea of how to use Custom Carousels to full effect, we’ve created a full walk-thru video, taking you from beginning to end, step-by-step:

This is a complete walk-thru, but you can jump directly to specific features to learn more:

We’re always working to improve the author experience, and we think this new functionality gives you more control over an already powerful discoverability tool. We can’t wait to see how creative authors get with these new customizable features!
