Calling all Goodreads subscribers!

Hey everyone :)

 

Last night, Goodreads gave us news of their new giveaways program and it's not good.  Long story short, they're going to charge $119 or $599 for giveaway packages from Jan 1st.  This is bad news for new authors (who won't cover that in sales), bad news for Indie authors (who don't have huge marketing budgets), and bad news for readers who aren't based in the US (you won't be able to enter the giveaways until they roll out the program to the rest of the world).

 

There is one positive, however, they included a feedback survey :)  Many authors are now letting Goodreads know how this will affect readers and writers alike.  If you are a member of Goodreads, please take the time to let them know your thoughts and help new and Indie authors reach the readers they deserve.

 

Thanks,

India

I wish I had time to do Tumblr and Instagram but I don't cross-post (apart from promo, which I try to keep limited), so keeping everything fresh takes a significant amount of time.

Profile Information

India Emerald weaves short stories with a magical theme to them. Her writing spans several genres including Fantasy, Magical Realism, and occasionally Science Fiction. She is the author of The Mages' Stones Complete Set (2016), Hope's Well (2016), The Dying of the Mother Seed (2017), Sparks in the Sky (2017), Defying Dimensions (2017), and The Chartreuse Spirit (2017). India frequently works with crystals both in her stories and her everyday life. She first caught the writing bug during middle school winning a local writing award. This spurred her on to write her first Space Opera at the age of 15. When India isn't writing or reading, she feeds her unhealthy obsession with video games and in particular RPGs. She lives on the edge of the Black Forest in what should be a gingerbread cottage, so she could eat sweets all day. You can follow her on Twitter @india_emerald or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/IndiaEmeraldAuthor/
