Are your books on Goodreads?
I'm very new to all this but I heard that it can be a great way to promote your books.
Anyone here tried Goodreads?
While I'm sure it's lovely and useful for many, and I'm glad it works for them, it has some frustrating aspects.
ETA: In all fairness, they reinstated my account without hassle, and have added an edit feature that allowed me to fix the version issue that was so irritating in the past.
I use it because for the books I sell, there's no reason not to. A huge number of readers use it, and it's another avenue for user reviews. I also have it set to repost any blog post I write on my author website.
As a reader, I always look at the Goodreads reviews over the Amazon reviews because they seem to have a better ratio of actual readers to street team members. Plus I enjoy keeping track of everything my friends and I are reading :-}

I think the way to get around that is to self publish on google, kindle etc etc.
I'd recommend people either finish a book or split it into larger arcs to self publish, might be a good model in the future too.
