Members of the Alliance of Independent Authors are getting together on Goodreads to do exciting giveaways and other events in 2013. We believe that GR is the best social network for all writers, including self-publishing authors.
Often writers say: I can’t get my head around it. Usually that’s because they want to use it as a straight self-promotion vehicle.
You can do that there, but you’ll have to pay advertising fees.
To use it as a social network, you need to think of it as a corner of the world where people who love to read and write come together to chat, enjoy each other’s company, pass on news about great books and – only sometimes – connect with writers.
On Goodreads, it’s all about the books.
Which is how it should be, right?
You’ll do best on Goodreads as a writer if you approach it, first and foremost, as a reader.
