dinie Goodread is truly awesome


message 2: by Superbambi (new)

Superbambi This is all pretty cool, but I wish Goodreads kind of acknowledged the fact not all of us are American. I mean, yay, y'all get up to 80% off for e-books, but is there anything for the rest of us?

Otherwise this is a cool section, seeing as thrillers/mystery/crime books are the best. :)

There are free promotions being run by indie authors during this same week, across Amazon marketplaces, which may be worth a look!

Three posts promoting your book is spamming.

Corey Recko So my first mystery novel made it out in time for "Mystery and Thriller Week."

message 31: by Helle (new)

Helle Goodreads offers plenty of fun as it is, but this is a great addition. And timely, as I just happen to be reading Agatha Christie (After the Funeral), which definitely qualifies as Mystery.

Too bad the deals are US only.

and it turns out there is a recently released mystery anthology called: Black Coffee -

I have zero affiliation with this, only that I saw it at my local bookstore on Authors for Indies Day on Saturday!

If you like Fatale you should read The Fade Out by the same team of Brubaker and Phillips.

They do something for romance week in February, but it is not as detailed and as this.

I'd love other genre weeks as well - I'm sure we'll get some later.

I was fortunate some years ago to meet James Lee Burke when he did an author chat. He was very forthcoming and entertaining.

Goodreads is part of the Amazon family. Amazon also has websites in other countries. You'll find that many of the books, particular in mystery and thriller section, are by British authors. When checking out a book, look at the "Stores" button ... you'll find a listing for Book Depository which is in England. They'll ship worldwide.
