It’s okay: hash tags don’t bite.

I’ve been making more of an effort to review enjoyable books from independent authors recently, especially those whose works are relatively undiscovered. Goodreads is a potentially valuable proving ground for new authors, particularly with the sheer volume of published material available today.

Predictably enough, the quality of independent work varies every bit as much as the output of the big five, so reviews of good… reads (sorry) are essential to help such authors stand out from the crowd.

For the twitter generation, I’ve been tweeting bite-sized reviews using the above hashtags, and linking to my (longer) Goodreads reviews. Or, you know, just follow @PeterRavlich.
