If you write novels, short stories, or nonfiction, and don’t know about the Goodreads site, you should really make some time to explore it here.
Goodreads is a site that brings authors and readers together. Readers put books on their “to-read” shelf, tell their friends how far along they are, whether they’ve finished it or abandoned it, and most importantly, what they think of it.
If you have a book that needs to be marketed, the best way of doing that is via Goodreads Giveaways, which are FREE! The only cost to the author is the book itself, and a nominal amount of money to mail it to the recipient. (For this to be a nominal amount, I suggest you mail only to people in the country you live in, as international rates can get very expensive.)
As an author, you get the excitement of the buzz about your novel, and then you get valuable feedback about your book. And all for a nominal amount of money.
Have a fabulous week!
