I have been a member of Good Reads for a long time, and I just can't seem to wrap my head around it.
I cannot get into the groups. I have tried, but the conversations are rarely interesting. If you know a good group, please invite me.
I cannot get into the stream... The site feels disjointed. I rate and review books I read, but it doesn't seem to be more than that.
I want Good Reads to be a place I can go to talk about books. Maybe I am using this site wrong. I have looked through many tutorials, but none of them have helped me.
So, in hopes of making Good Reads work the way I want it to, I started a Project: Shadow Book Club. I hope you join. I will give this a year to take off, and I will post there even if I am just talking to myself.
I am reading Kaiju Rising, and made that the first book of the month. It is a collection of short stories about giant monsters destroying cities, but it is so much more. I have really been enjoying the book, and I look forward to discussing it with you.
I also set up a poll for to select the book of the month for October. You can vote on the four books I added or suggest one of your own.
Lets get this book fandom doing what it should: discussion and sharing.
My name is C.E. Dorsett, and I am a scifi/fantasy writer. I have written the books Shine Like Thunder and The Chain, just to name a couple. I am really a builder of worlds from the wuxia inspired, scifi setting Our Solemn Hour to the dark fantasy of Dragons of Night. My writing is influenced by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Charlaine Harris, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Frank Herbert, E E Doc Smith and Robert E Howard. I love to tell stories and talk with my readers.
