Beth Hi Con,
Welcome to Goodreads, and thanks for befriending this fellow crime writer here as well as in real-life! Do you know about the Author Program (see the help menu at the bottom of the page) and have you applied? Also, you may want to check out some of the groups here that I belong to (see my profile page) and consider joining some of them. I hope you enjoy hanging out at Goodreads!
- Beth
