Now we have a sidebar I think we should have some kind of "Book of The Week/Month" system. I say week or month because if there's not a lot of choice it might be better to leave a book up there for a month. Basically the suggestion is to put a sticky thread up where people list books they would like to be put on the sidebar. It can be a book of their own or one they like. The criteria needs to be that it's self published though. That's the only rule. It would also be nice if people give full disclosure and say in their suggestion that it's their book.
It's good to have an outlet to say "This is my work, please check it out" in a post but not everyone can get on Voat every day. Plus posts become buried quickly and old posts aren't looked at. Keeping them in the sidebar means they get a lot more attention. It also stops the sub from being cluttered with self promotion. Instead of making another thread for themselves they can just list their book in the sticky.
Of course you can, and should, still make a post to announce you've released something. But if you already have a book out just putting it in the sidebar might be better. You can also make a thread announcing a release and also have it put in the sidebar.
Let me know what you think of the idea.
EDIT: To make it clear books should be put up in the sidebar in the order they are put in the sticky thread. It should operate on a first come/first served basis.
