Hugdug is a free site we're launching soon. It combines the joy of recommending a great book or other product with the mission of raising millions for charity.
The idea is simple: each page on HugDug is a review, written by a real person (you?) that links to that product on Amazon. When someone buys it, HugDug gets paid a commission, and we send half our profit to the designated charity. That's fifty times the 1% standard that some companies use.
You can check out a dozen or two of the reviews I've written right here:
Each review needs to be at least 140 words long, and it should be personal and fun, like the very best book blurbs are. Please don't review your own work, unless of course you can do it in a way that's memorable and even funny.
All you need to do is visit the home page, pick a product using the Amazon link for it (or the site will help you search for it), join and write.
While we're in our beta test period, there's a big tab at the bottom right of the screen. If you have any suggestons about how we can improve the experience, or if you find any bugs, please hit that button... it'll send an alert right to our programmers.
I'll be highlighting a bunch of great HugDug reviews and their writers on my blog when we launch, and I'd appreciate your contribution.
Thanks for doing this.
PS we're working on a tool that will make it really easy to alert your readers to go review your book directly. When it's ready, I'll let you know. Once you have an account set up, be sure to check out the tools page for a really powerful shortcut.
