Every writer who wants to be published and have people buy their books knows the importance of marketing using social media. There are so many avenues to choose: Facebook, Pinterest, blogs, website, Instagram, Twitter, etc. It’s great to have all these options and there are many more, but it can be overwhelming. In order to keep writing, it’s also necessary to read the books you like to write and to see what is popular.
In 2013, I found Goodreads.com, a website that combines that social media marketing to get your books out there, as well as the ability to stay connected to the reading community. I have an author profile and my books on the site so that readers can add reviews and find out more about me.
What I love about this site is that you can search for books and mark if you want to read them, are reading them or have read them. You can leave your own review and share them with a friend. You can invite friends to join and once you have added a variety of books, a list of books you may like are recommended for you.
Even if you aren’t a writer, this site is a fantastic way to keep track of your books and to find new ones that you can’t wait to read.
I invite you to go on Goodreads.com, fill out your profile, find some friends, and check out my books! If you have any questions about my books or my writing, you can leave a question and I’ll be sure to get back to you!My Goodreads.com Profile!
