Officially a Verified Goodreads Author!

Good evening, good evening, good evening!

(As Stephen Fry says to open up almost every QI episode)

Good evening everyone!

          I just want to say wow! Wow, wow, wow, wow, and wow again! I am officially a Goodreads author! It has honestly got me really excited and I'm not too sure why. Guess it's because I'm proud I can join the community on Goodreads in such a way and it also shows that my work for my EPQ has paid off!

If you don't know who or what Goodreads are, here's a little explanation:

"Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. Our mission is to help people find and share books they love. Goodreads launched in January 2007."
(According to Goodreads themselves -

And here are a few things you can do on Goodreads:

  • See which books your friends are reading.
  • Track the books you're reading, have read, and want to read.
  • Check out your personalized book recommendations. Our recommendation engine analyzes 20 billion data points to give suggestions tailored to your literary tastes.
  • Find out if a book is a good fit for you from our community’s reviews.
          I joined Goodreads in May 2014 and, along with over 40 million other users, I have been posting updates about the books I am currently reading, own, and would like to read. For someone who loves to read and who loves books in general it is a great website and community to be a part of. So you can only imagine my excitement when I got the email through telling me that I was officially a verified Goodreads author!
         You should know by now that, on August 20th, I have my script coming out. You can already pre-order it on Amazon! (Click here to PRE-ORDER MISSION: BLITZ NOW!) And, although the script has been self-published through Kindle Direct Publishing, I am very proud and excited for it to be released. I had previously searched for my book on Goodreads simply out of pure curiosity but never seemed to find it for some reason until I found you could add a book if you couldn't find it. When I tried to type the ASIN number(almost the equivalent to a ISBN number but for e-books I think) into the details it came up saying that that book already existed in the Goodreads database and told me to type it in to the search. So I did and there it was... MY BOOK IN THE GOODREADS DATABASE! I hadn't expected to find it at all. Unfortunately at the time it didn't recognise that I was the author but it was easy for me to apply to show that I was. A day later the e-mail came through and now here it is:

It would be great if you have a Goodreads account to follow me! Add me as a friend a well if you like! If you don't have an account, why don't you make one? I am extremely excited about all this so thank you for all your support you have given me so far and it would be great if you'd continue with it, it really helps me a lot!

Thank you for everything!
