Keep us posted here! Remember, you have until midnight December 25th, MST to invite as many friends as you can to go to http://www.SecretSpeakers.com so they can rate the book!

Send me your tally by January 1, 2009. (Just send me a message on my profile page). I'll post the the first, second and third place winners just before Secret Speakers is released, Spring 2009.

I simply expect you to be diligent in keeping track of how many people you invite. (The fridge or next to your computer is a good place.) We'll just have to do this on the honor system. We all need to trust each other that we're as good as our word. Deal?

On the thread that describes the "rules" it says, "Just paste the URL of our groups' main page into your invites to email friends, or, you can click "invite" on the right side of this screen to invite friends here at Goodreads. Use your imagination."

Hope that helps! Thanks for asking Victoria. If you have any more questions please let me know. Feel free to send me a personal message.

What I can't figure out is why no one is commenting on the facebook page. It's really lonely over there!


I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments Wows... Well maybe more people are involved here!


message 25: by Tera (new)

Tera I think most people are goodreads people and facebook doesn't really lend itself to discussions in my opinion. Its more just a way to keep in contact with people but not really a place to discuss books for me.
I've been inviting like made Ill have to tally up my numbers for you soon.

Karey (kareyshane) | 278 comments Mod
Great, Tera!

Your comment about facebook makes sense. I'm hardly ever there myself, except to stay in touch with people through messages. At that, it's maybe a couple times a week.


I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments I'm rarely on.


message 28: by Dawn (new)

Dawn | 26 comments I'm up to a little over 600! I am trying to get more people from work to sign up. I work for the government so I can't exactly send out mass e-mails on their systems, but I stil plan on getting more people. I've done facebook and myspace and co-workers, plus I'm a part of SEVERAL book clubs that I haven't tapped into yet (or at least all of them) and sent out requests! I also am a part of two different book sites, so I am going to let my friends on there know too. I am still working!


I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments I invited my librarian! 517 people so far.


I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments And another 111 people, so thats... 628.

Karey (kareyshane) | 278 comments Mod
I think I'm choking. Every time I go to my email inbox, there is a list of new names from people who've signed up. I had no idea...you're all so incredible.

I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments I am now at 660 people invited!


message 35: by Novin (new)

Novin | 7 comments I invited everyone I knew on goodreads & my messenger list...but that's not much =( around 80 on yahoo...


message 36: by Novin (new)

Novin | 7 comments and 100 on goodreads, I'm gonna post it on my goodreads groups too :)


message 37: by Karey (new)

Karey (kareyshane) | 278 comments Mod
Thanks, Novin. The more ratings I have to go on, the better sense I'll get for how people like or don't like the Secret Speakers.


I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments I really like it! There's alot of fantasy right now. It seems this century is getting addicted to reading! :D


I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments I invited from Flixster and YouTube, so that's... 694!

Karey (kareyshane) | 278 comments Mod
Are you all being sure to send them to http://www.SecretSpeakers.com?


I ♥ Luke Castellan *Alexa* (i_love_jacob_black_95) | 119 comments Me too!
She said to send it to her Goodreads inbox.

It's amazing what happens with just a thought--an idea + a few written words + wonderful people! It's adding up to something that's doing pretty well. I thought I was foolish to be giving away my entire manuscript after working on it for so many years, but it's turning out alright. Thanks everyone.
