If you’re an indie author and you’re not on Goodreads, it’s time to take the plunge. With a rapidly-growing community of readers and authors numbering over 10 million — thanks to integration with Facebook timeline — and a data partnership with industry giant Ingram, Goodreads is the leading social media site for bookophiles. We congregate to swap book recommendations and reviews, interact in like-minded groups and clubs, and even to win swag from authors themselves. Goodreads has competitors, like LibraryThing and Amazon’s Shelfari, but they pale in comparison to the dominant hold Goodreads has on this space.

For many overwhelmed, overworked, and underpaid authors, the thought of another social media site (or any social media site) may send you into the tremors. Goodreads makes it easy, though, starting with their Author How-To. The How-To has slide shows to guide you step-by-step through creating your author profile, and much, much more. In fact, they teach you how to do just about everything I’m going to recommend.
