The mod wasn't aware of the Goodreads Authors/Readers Group at the time of Author's Corner inception. It appears to be an active community, so you may want to try there: http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/2...

Been interesting though.

J.D. Hallowell | 8 comments Is there a reason we can't use both?


message 4: by Grammar*Kitten (new)

Grammar*Kitten (GrammarKitten) I much prefer the 'smaller' groups; it's what's put me off joining groups before!

Kevis Hendrickson (kevishendrickson) | 26 comments I agree with Andrea. Our posts tend to get swallowed up in the white noise of the larger groups. So here's another vote for the Author's Corner.

Vita (vitanostri) | 2 comments Well, despite the fact that it seems like the group has died, i think this group looks pretty nice :) So if there is a chance this group will keep going.. Let it be!

Bryan | 22 comments Hello everyone in Author's Corner. I just found this awesome group and wanted to thank John for setting it up for us all. I know there's another, much (or massively) larger group out there, but where the large group will have possibly more eyes, the smaller the group, the less likely a work is to get lost (as ???) said. So I look forward to checking out some of the work here and hope some of you find interest in mine as well!

Keep reading, keep writing, and have a great time!

Thanks Bryan. Writers keep posting so we'll keep on.

Kevis Hendrickson (kevishendrickson) | 26 comments We use to be some interesting discussions here. I would certainly love to see more posts.

Millie (Micala) | 1 comments Hello ... I am not new to Goodreads Author's Corner, but this is my first comment. Need some guidance ... are we allowed to comment, give synopsis or promote our own books here?

Hey Millie,
I've been in the group for a while now, too, and I have been promoting my work here. As long as you post within the category that your book is in, you shouldn't have any problems. Just scroll down on the homepage until you find the discussion topic best suited to your book (Science-fiction, young adult, mystery, what have you) and then post away inside that discussion thread. That's what I did! (See In the Light of the Eclipse thread under "Young Adult).

Have fun, keep writing and keep reading!

James Tomas | 2 comments Yes you can list/posts your own books on Goodreads, but the only thing I regret is that you cannot recommend your own books...that's a bummer &*$%@#*>

We used to be able to recommend our books, but some authors got carried away and ruined it for the rest of us. So posting about your books in the appropriate section is the way to go.

Jim Vuksic John, the moderator, and fellow members of the group,

Numbers mean nothing; I'll choose quality over quantity anytime. Another group of which I am a member has less than fifty members. This group has over two hundred. Both include interesting and knowledgeable participants from whom I am certain to learn.

Keep it going!
