Amateur wordsmith of the kinky story. In other words, I write SMUT in another form. Taking on Goodreads fatally flawed 'review' system that invites abuse.

#Indieauthors, before you advertise on #Goodreads or buy a promotional package, read the experience of one author: http://bit.ly/1JXgwaX

this site is extremely broken. the get in touch doesn't work. The Link field doesn't allow tracked links and the link to James Blanchette over in the new posts is broken?

Published #authors: ur books eventually end up in #Goodreads database. Took 12 days for my new .ePub to show up. However, if u aren't a member and don't have an author's page, ur book might end up on another author's page: http://bit.ly/1DVJALM ended up: http://bit.ly/1DEpvw5. Not same Brian Cox.

Way to go #Goodreads. Locate a newly (Dec. 2014) published book by D. Turner, (http://bit.ly/14AWUsp) and place it on an unclaimed author's page (http://bit.ly/1C0U799) that includes other works by what are obviously various authors named D. Turner who don't know their works are on Goodreads. Class!

You are a book reader who loves to review books. You write a cogent, well thought out 5* review of a book you fell in love with. Without reading it, I come along and put a 1* rating on it because I hate the genre and despise the author. Both of our ratings carry the same weight at #Goodreads.

Exceedingly massive.

Yup, but there still isn't enough room to display one of those fluid dynamics equations.

Hey Dr. G - I see you're deaf and you have brain hemorrhoids. :) Welcome to the brave new world of scrazzle, hope they survive.

I find it rather odd that #Goodreads doesn't require a member to read a book before reviewing it or rating it. The review system is only a rating mill for #Amazon to data mine. Your cogent, well thought out review carries as much weight as my mindless 1* rating for a book I didn't touch.

Every published author should know that their books are cataloged in the #Goodreads database, an author page is created and reviews / ratings are made by members. There is no requirement that members read your book to rate it or write a derogatory review and invite their 'friends' to 1* bomb it.

#Indieauthors, do you know which features on #Goodreads favor #Amazon and hurt your sales at other outlets like B&N Nook? The 'Get a copy' buttons are hindering your sales because they favor Amazon and are reader configured, not author configured to your outlets.

Authors on Goodreads, especially Indie authors should search the Internet before giving Goodreads and thus Amazon, information about themselves. Read my cautionary tale on the website or the free booklet referenced, which is at smashwords, iTunes or B&N Nook.
