Anna Erishkigal’s FREE EBOOKS community on Google+ (and Does Anyone Else Have a Reader-Oriented Community They’d Like To Share?)

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.

    This posting, which I wrote for Kourtney Heinz’s Journal, might be of some interest to your readers, and you have my permission to reprint it.

    1. Thanks, Leon. The interview looks great! I love what you had to say about giving yourself permission to be imperfect. No matter how much we edit or how many people edit our books, there’s always something that could have been better.

      I’ll be happy to post it. I’ll schedule it for the 23rd. 😀

    2. Leon, I apologize, but I had to delete the post I had scheduled for today. I didn’t know I had to get Kourtney Heinz’s permission first, and since I failed to do that, I had no right to post your interview. To play it safe, I am just going to let people click on the link you provided.

      1. Ruth, thank you so much for your quick response to my email and for removing the content. 🙂

        1. Thanks for emailing me. I’m glad you told me because otherwise, I never would have realized my mistake. Not everyone takes the time to work things out in a private setting, and I appreciate the fact that you did. 😀

  2. Glynis Smy has a real talent for introducing new authors in one of her two blogs:

    She’s very supportive of fellow writers.

  3. Yes–Glynis promotes several new books each day!

    1. That’s nice that she does that. It looks like she puts a lot of work into it, too.

  4. She does indeed! I don’t know where she finds the time!
