I received a comment from Anna Erishkigal on my post about Amazon and Facebook changing things around (and how to cope). I thought her idea to start a reader-oriented community on Google+ where they can find free ebooks by authors running giveaways was a great one. I’d like to get the word out about it to both authors and readers.
So I’m letting everyone reading this post know. I’d also like to ask you to pass on the community to anyone you know who runs a blog reviewing books or knows a way to reach potential readers through their sites. The best way to reach readers is to try to find people who is able to reach them. What I did was recommend the FREE EBOOKS community with someone in my friends circle on Google+. This friend is a reader who does book reviews on her blog, so she has access to readers that I don’t. I’m sure there are other ways to help spread the word, but that’s the first thing that came to my mind.
Here’s the link to the FREE EBOOKS community on Google+: https://plus.google.com/communities/117269704176312407898?hl=en.
Does anyone else have a community they’ve started up to reach help authors reach readers? If so, please share them in the comments. Maybe someone reading this post and the comments will have a reader they know who knows other readers who would be interested in the community.
