Check this out.

If you aren’t on Goodreads, you should be.  I’ve said before, it’s like Facebook for readers on crack.  I was contacted by Goodreads a couple of months ago, wanting me to answer a few questions about my experience since publishing earlier this year.  Check out the article they posted today.  It’s really interesting seeing things from this perspective.

To celebrate such an amazing year, how about an e-reader giveaway?  Winner gets the choice between a Kindle Fire, Paperwhite, or Nook.  All you have to do is comment on this post. :)  Winner will be announced Friday morning.

Edited to add:  Well, hell.  Let’s show Goodreads some love, too.  I’ll do TWO e-reader giveaways.  One for comments on my blog post, and one giveaway for comments on the Goodreads article here.  Leave a comment on the Goodreads post and say something positive about why you love Goodreads for a chance to win the second e-reader.  They deserve some sweets.  <3

    1. Hi Colleen,
      Its so heartwarming to see how generous and humble self published authors are. They’re so willing to share their stories of success and offer assistence to those authors who are struggling to have their voices heard and story told. Thanks for just being a nice person.

  1. Am I going to be #1? Goodreads like Facebook for readers on crack — Agreed. I am on there just as much as I am on FB, looking for more amazing books to read. I am addicted. Thanks for the giveaway Colleen! and congrats on all of your success. You 100 percent deserve it!

  2. I went to B&N this week (@ The Grove in Los Angeles) and I squealed when I saw your books on the shelf. Squealed. Out loud. Lots of staring. Aaaand I had to take a picture! I’m sure you probably already have one from there after the contest you did awhile back, but if you’re missing one from LA, I’ve got you! =)

  3. Thanks for the link to the article. I am addicted to Goodreads, as well! I wouldn’t have found butterflying amazing books like yours without Goodreads!

  4. This is me commenting. I hope you pick me. I would love to win something. It would make me feel less like “striking out in the bottom of the 9th when the bases are loaded…” or something. :) PS – great article!
