Sometimes, when exploring new opportunities for marketing my books, I feel a little like the tiny guys at the bottom of this slot canyon: Experiencing an awesome opportunity but overwhelmed by the learning curve. Fortunately, I’ve recently found two excellent resources for exploring a canyon-sized opportunity: Goodreads.
My Facebook friend Michelle Campbell-Scott sent me an advance review copy of Goodreads for Authors - a Kindle book that’s chock-full of tips that I can’t wait to try out. Next, Michelle teamed up with another of my friends, Cathy Presland to create a Udemy course that covers the ins and outs of Goodreads for authors. Although I have Michelle’s book I signed up for the Udemy course as well because sometimes I do far better watching a video, and other times I want to read.
I agree with Michelle and Cathy – I think Goodreads is an under-utilized marketing tool for savvy writers – and I can’t wait to dig deep into what I can do there.
I had planned on working on my new #Kindle book this week but I’ve back-burnered it in favor or immersing myself in Goodreads. Will report in when I know more.
