Reviewing with GoodReads!

I have had a wonderful experience with GoodReads lately! :)

If you go into GoodReads (you have to have an account!), you can go to the Expore tab, click on books.







When that screen comes up, it has its own tabs.  Click on Giveaways.









At the bottom of that screen on the right, below the titles, you'll see "More Giveaways."  Click on that and 
you're ready to go! 





   There are pages and pages of giveaways, even from established, known authors!!  Some only give away 1 at a time, some 5 or 25, some autographed!  It's awesome and I'm totally hooked!  These are typically pre-published, ARC or galley manuscripts.  You're asked, if you win, to review them and paste that review on GoodReads which GoodReads may use.  :)  Pretty cool right?? Today's a great day to go do that because many of the giveaways are ending today or tomorrow, so you can still get in under the wire.  I just started entering to win on Friday and I've already won one!  It's called Drum Dance by Bonnie Turner.
   

The other cool side effect:  I've had like 3 authors friend me because I had signed up to win one of their books.  I had another author, who is trying to get his novella out and reviewed as some of his earnings are going to charity, contact me and ask me to read a FREE pdf version of his book and review before the end of the month.   THAT one is called The Cries of Vampira (The Horror of Gaad Grey, The Evil Alpha Werewolf #1) by Sean H Robertson.

Totally psyched! heehee.
