Christina McMullen (cmcmullen) Hi everyone!
As you may or may not know, Support for Indie Authors has some social media presence that we're trying to develop as well as the website. One such presence is our Twitter account. We're setting up some lists on Twitter so that our members have easy access to accounts we think they should follow and we'd like your help. If you follow any accounts that you find useful, we want to hear about them. Leave us the link and a brief description of what they do below and we'll see about adding them to our resource lists.

Also, we want to list you! If you're following us (and if you aren't, you should be), tweet to us what genres you write in (general genres, no more than three) and we will add you to our author lists.
Thanks folks!

Heidi Angell (heidiangell) | 241 comments I am so bad about creating lists... I have been meaning to do it for months. But I can make a suggestion of a list you should have... Book reviewers.

I follow tons of book reviewers and have been meaning to make a list of book reviewers. Feel free to add me to that list @HeidiAngell.

I am also an author of Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Fantasy, and YA literary fiction.

Hi Heidi. Could you give your URL or just tweet that information to us. We're collecting resource links here but we want the authors to tweet so that we can easily add.

Reese Hogan (reesehogan) | 47 comments Tweet on your wall or as a private message?


message 6: by Christina (new)

Christina McMullen (cmcmullen) Just tweet at the account. It makes it easier to click and add you.

I tweeted you! @samcfischer


message 8: by Grace (new)

Grace Risata | 25 comments I agree with Heidi. I would LOVE a current list of book reviewers or book bloggers who do reviews. I'm not on twitter so I can't get in on the twitter thing, sorry.


message 9: by Christina (new)

Christina McMullen (cmcmullen) Hey guys. Please stick to leaving us resource links and suggestions. If you want to be added to our author list, all you have to do is tweet to the SIA account. Nothing more. This is not a discussion thread for the merits of social media. We have plenty of those in our marketing and promo folder, if you'd like to join the discussion.


message 10: by Tere (new)

Tere Fredericks | 5 comments Is there a list for those of us who will be glad to review and/or beta read? I'm in school right now, and am trying to finish three beta/reviews, but would be glad to be such a list. I will be off on Spring break in a week, and will be able to read until my eyes bleed. Ideas? Places to look? I don't really want to limit myself to one genre of reviewing/beta because when an author puts it in just one category, I may love it anyway. For example, westerns. I'm not found of them, but there have been some that have left me laughing and the author didn't say they had humor (I just hope they meant the book to bee funny, LOL).

Andrea Waltz (andreawaltz) | 10 comments Just followed you! I'm @OnyxWebb - I have a few good lists too.

And if you aren't already following, @FionaQuinnBooks has a blog filled with excellent articles for anyone whose plot involves action :)

M.E. Hembroff (mhembroff) | 9 comments I'm a new member from Alberta, Canada. If there is a list of reviews out there I would sure love one. Getting reviews is a difficult task.

Hi, M.E.!
If you will go to the Forum main page, you will see all the topics available. There are numerous people posting to request reviews and who are willing to do free reviews for other people. If you read through them, I am sure you can find what you are looking for. Good Luck!

M.E. Hembroff (mhembroff) | 9 comments Where do I find the Forum main page? I am still fairly new to Goodreads and am trying to find my way around.


M. Ray Holloway Jr.   (mrayhollowayjr) | 180 comments You can click on "Groups" in the upper right hand corner of this thread. That will take you there. Look for "Support for Indie Authors" and click on it. The topics page will then open up for you to peruse. If you scroll down to Free Services, I'm sure you will find people who are looking for books to review for their blogs. I hope this helps.

M.E. Hembroff (mhembroff) | 9 comments I think I was just in the section you are talking about.

Thanks for the question M. E. I am new to this Goodreads myself. Seems everytime I have a question, someone else has had it too! And Thanks M. Ray for the reply to M. e.

M.E. Hembroff (mhembroff) | 9 comments It is much easier to find than I originally thought.

Yes, that really helps!
Thanks!
I've been on Goodreads for ages but there is always so much going on here, it gets a bit scary!
