Last weekend, I attended the Romance Author Mastermind conference in Houston, hosted by Skye Warren. It was a terrific conference, and like all the best ones, it sent me home with a huge list of ideas.
One of the things I realized that I’m under-utilizing – or maybe not using well at all! – is GoodReads. I think of it as a reader environment, where readers can talk about books with other readers. This is all good, but there are still things I can do there.
About once a year, I go into GR and update or correct the information about my books – the description, the ISBN’s and the series information, typically – but that has been the extend of my engagement in recent years. I’ve been lucky to have readers add my books for me there, but now I’m going to be more pro-active.
You can follow me at Goodreads. Here’s Claire’s profile on Goodreads. This blog posts automatically on that profile.
Right now, there’s only one upcoming book you can add. Here’s Pearl Beyond Price, coming December 31.
When I get a few minutes, I’ll add GR links to the individual book pages on my websites.
