Goodreads Authors/Readers with Dana Delamar

Thurs, Nov 8th, 7–8:30 in the Stadler Room, Third Place Commons, Lake Forest Park Town Center

Goodreads was launched in 2007 as a site “to help people find and share books they love . . . [and] to improve the process of reading and learning throughout the world” as well as to help authors and publishers address the challenge of “discoverability.” By June 2018, the site had over 75 million registered members in its community of readers/reviewers/and authors.

That is a huge audience. . . but how does an author reach them? And how do readers connect? On Thurs, Nov 8th, writer, editor, and Goodreads expert Dana Delamar will walk us through the many facets of Goodreads and explains how authors can help their books succeed through its services. Sarah Niebuhr Rubin will also describe the community’s tools and benefits from a reader’s perspective.

Dana Delamar is the author of erotic romance, LGBT romance, and the “Blood and Honor” Mafia romance series. In 2014 she was a finalist for both an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and a Maggie Award, as well as a semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Review’s Best Kindle Book Awards.
