No matter where I look, no matter what I read, the articles all say the same thing. If you want to get noticed as an author “PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE”. Blog. Join groups. Reach as many people as possible.
So, to that end, I have started my goodreads account back up and became a goodreads author. Between my personal facebook account, my facebook author page, blogging here on wordpress, my tumblr account, my twitter account, and now my goodreads author account I can say I have started. There are many more places online for me yet to explore but it’s a start.
My new motto is not “Read, rate, review”. If I read a book I am going to make sure I talk about it. Why? I would like others to do the same for me. I’m going to talk about it, rate it, review it. Ratings and reviews get noticed. I certainly can’t expect others to rate and review my work if I don’t do the same.
So… READ, RATE, REVIEW.
