Are you on Goodreads? It's another outlet for authors to promote their books. Not as big as Facebook or Twitter or the new giant, Pinterest, but it is becoming a favorite of both readers and writers.
The ReadWriteWeb site says Goodreads is "pushing 20 million unique visitors per month." Self-published writers are recognizing the importance of having a presence there. According to the article, "For those whose work centers around social media and writing, Goodreads can function as a universe all its own, and a place to quietly cultivate community. As with all types of social networks, those who engage more frequently generally tend to get more value out of the site itself."
According to the article, "35,000 self-promoting, social-networking authors have taken to Goodreads. The site currently has 8 million registered members who have written more than 13 million reviews and added more than 280 million books to their virtual shelves."
Eight million members and 13 million+ reviews is not something most writers would want to ignore.
