November meeting recap: Goodreads Demystified thanks to Dana Delamar

Dana Delamar demystified Goodreads for authors at our November 8 meeting. Goodreads, which is owned by Amazon, attracts 65 million readers, but Dana showed us how to approach the site on a personal level, as a way of connecting with fellow readers while, at the same time, making our books more “discoverable.” She explained setting up your author page, the importance of friends, to-be-read (TBR) lists, shelves, forums, following other authors, getting reviews, and creating a reading challenge for yourself. It was an energizing evening! Dana’s business, byyoursideselfpub.com, helps authors with both publishing and marketing.
