If you read this blog, the chances are you’re interested in books. And if that’s the case, may I humbly suggest that you join Goodreads, if you haven’t already? Goodreads is a great online community of readers. It’s like a book-centric facebook, but without all the annoying games, aggravating political inanities, and pictures of other people’s puppies. It’s the largest book-related social media site on the planet, which means that you’ll always find someone ready and willing to chat about whatever your literary interests may be, no matter how rarefied.
And if you do? Or if you already have? Please take a minute to look me up and become my friend – or, if you’re really a glutton for punishment, become a, ahem, “fan”.
Here’s another reason to join. One of the other cool things about Goodreads is that they give away lots of books. You can probably guess what’s coming next… my publisher is hosting a giveaway of 25 galleys of A GOOD AMERICAN. If you are a member you can go here and click on the “enter to win” button. You have until December 5 to do so. Good luck!!
In other news, plans for events in February to mark the publication of the book are slowly coming together. We are waiting for the final pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to drop into place and once that has happened I will let you know. I also spoke with the wonderful Penguin publicity people on Friday and learned more about some of the media coverage for the book. Reviews a-plenty! It’s all very exciting, and I will announce stuff here just as soon as I am able.
Happy Monday, everyone!
