No other social networking site is more important for a writer to leverage than Goodreads. Other platforms such as Twitter and Facebook have people talking about everything from politics and current events to showing off foodie pictures.

Goodreads has featured Michael in presentations made at Book Expo America, and Goodreads' Director of Author Marketing cited him as “one of the most effective authors on Goodreads" in a Forbes article on author branding.
