Amaranthine on Goodreads


As I mentioned in my previous post (Amaranthine on Pintrest ), some new Facebook policies have forced me tho think about promoting other social network options. Though Facebook is still the big one right now, MySpace used to be the top dog, and now it’s gone the way of the dodo. Who knows what may happen as Facebook continues to be more about how much we can pay them and less about social interaction.

As such, I am showcasing some networks I’m on. I mentioned Pintrest , already, Twitter and G+ already, and, yes, I have a website ( if you’ve never been there), but a website is like a poster at a subway station. Full of good information though not really a way to participate in a conversation.

As such, now seems like a good idea to start mentioning some of those other social media sites I’m on and telling you why you might like to connect with me there.


What it is: A community of book lovers and authors. Participants create a profiles and “bookshelves” to showcase books they’ve read. Rate and review them to give your favorite authors a boost, or to help Goodreads give you more accurate recommendations. There are also groups you can join, where you can participate in various discussions, games, and more, and there are a lot of author giveaways, as well as trivia, polls, quotes, and more. You can add other users as friends, or you can just follow their book reviews, as well as comparing books to see what books you have in common to find your literary soul mates.

Why it’s fun: Your home page features a stream of updates from your friends and recommendations from goodreads. Though we follow our friend’s cat posts and ice bucket videos on other networks, how often do you know what they’re reading or what they loved or hated? Groups range from reading clubs to discussion groups on pretty much any topic you can imagine, and who doesn’t like to play games or win free books?

Why you want to follow me: If you’re interested in my book reviews (if you like what I write, you might like what I read, too!) or if you like to keep up to date with major news and events then hop on over and add me (or become my fan). My blog also posts to my update stream, and it’s a good place to find a tidy listing of ALL my books. I admit, I don’t do a lot of interacting there, but who knows when that might change?

And remember that newsletter I mentioned? If you do subscribe to it right now you get the first three chapters of Clash of Legends (book 7) as an apology for the publication date being pushed back –
