You guys know how much I’ve been complaining about the whole marketing thing. It’s such a pain, so much work, and I’m terrible at it. Last week, my very good friend, Alex Cavanaugh, went out on a limb and asked his followers to vote for his two books, CassaStar and CassaFire, on the Goodreads’ Best Space Opera List. I and many others voted, and CassaStar remained at #1 and CassaFire moved to #2.
I found that very inspiring, and while I don’t have near the following Alex does, it doesn’t take much for a book to move up on a Goodreads list.
As it happens, though well received and reviewed, my book, The Mistaken, needs some serious help in the sales department, and raising awareness via Goodreads is a good way to do that. So I’m asking for the same favor.
The Mistaken has been added to 14 Goodreads lists by readers. That’s a remarkable feat I can be proud of, but I’d like it to be as high on those lists as possible so it’s more visible, which, hopefully, will help sales.
So, for you Goodreads members who wouldn’t mind, use this master list link for all 14 Goodreads lists The Mistaken appears on, then click on the lists individually, as many as you want, and wait for The Mistaken to appear, usually at the top of the page. All you have to do is click on the “vote for this book” button next to my title. That’s it. Very quick and easy peasy!
The lists (below) are in order of importance to me, especially the first 10, though all have immense influence. Unfortunately, except for the lists where my book is near the top, as people vote, the book moves up and these individual links will not be accurate for placement, so click on the master link for all 14 lists then click on each individual list to vote.
Thank you in advance!
You have no idea how much I appreciate your help!
