My 2017 Author Wish List for Goodreads

Wishlist Cover Image

I think Goodreads is, by any measure, a boon to independent authors. The reading network makes it easy for users to rate and review books, which gives indie authors social credibility.  It also lets readers share books they’re enjoying, which gives authors exposure. These are important needs for indie authors, and Goodreads is doing the Lord’s work by meeting them.

So generally, I think Goodreads is great. But as an independent author, there are a few things I wish it did better. And if I could climb into the head of Goodreads’ product management team and control him or her like a helpless meat puppet (a la Being John Malkovich), I’d totally get a few things at the top of their development roadmap. (Which is perhaps the most boring and unscandalous thing that you could do in a Being-John-Malkovich scenario, but that’s how seriously badly I want these.)

Orconomics is Now An Audiobook

A man listening to Orconomics

Have you ever thought to yourself “I wish I could listen to fine financial fantasy when driving to work?” Or perhaps you think some epic fantasy humor would help make that vacation travel a bit more relaxing? Or maybe you have a friend who you think would enjoy some fine economic satire, but he or she only listens to audiobooks?

Well, I have the answer to all of your problems—provided all of your problems are a subset of that remarkably specific list. Orconomics: A Satire is now available on Audible and iTunes.

And if you’ve never listened to Audiobooks before, this is a great one to get you started. Narrator Doug Tisdale really brings the characters of Arth to life. You can get Orconomics for free when you start your 30-day trial with Audible.com.
