Lauren Pierre | 8 comments Is it bad practice for an author to inform a user (PM them) who has added your book(s) to their want-to-read lists of upcoming book promotions?

I have a holiday sale coming up in a few days and was curious.

rivka | 562 comments Lauren, you may want to review the author guidelines (https://www.goodreads.com/author/guid...), especially this section:
Do not contact (via comments/messages/friend requests) all or most of the people who add your book or a related work. You should also avoid tactics like thanking everyone who has added your book. Do not send unwanted messages or friend requests. While well intentioned, these kinds of behaviors will result in people flagging you as a spammer, and we will have to take action.

Ahh... forgot about that rule for a second. Thank you, rivka.

rivka | 562 comments I see you already made a blog post, which is a good way to get the info out to your friends and followers. You may want to follow up with a general status update as well.
