Meeting Places

In part 1 (http://brianbasham.blogspot.com/2014/07/author-superfriends-teamup-part-1.html) I discussed a grand idea for helping to promote works of those who wish to participate. This is a collaborative effort that will require the efforts of everyone involved. Now we need a place to meet and share ideas. For such a large effort, we will need multiple venues to get the word out and organize events. I have decided to begin with Facebook, G+ Communities, Wattpad, and Goodreads. We will need to pick a venue to be headquarters for this effort. For now we need a place to discuss our ideas.

Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1459162277685586/ - This is the Facebook group for discussing how to best promote each other on Facebook. Facebook is one of the best places to promote your works according to many popular and successful authors. Promoting on Facebook is a must for any author wishing to be successful.

Google+ Community

https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103733724132030260502 - Google has made a push to have their own social media experience become popular. This is one of the fastest growing social media sites for good reason. Google writer's communities are very active and informative. Anyone who has a gmail account can log in here and easily find discussion groups on any number of topics.

Wattpad

http://www.wattpad.com/59575481-author-superfriends-teamup - Millions of writers and readers contribute to this community. This is a great place to help try to build a fanbase. It's also a great place to provide samples of your writing for potential readers or fans.

Goodreads

https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/139888-author-superfriends-teamup - Another great resource site for readers and authors alike. The discussion groups are a great place to network with authors and readers. It's also a great site for posting and reading reviews.
