Authors who are either self-published or with small publishers have an extremely difficult time getting the word out about their novels. Most large publishing houses have money devoted to advertising, and well-known authors usually have their own publicists to handle marketing.
While this isn't much, I've decided to put together an authors' list on my website for those who could use extra exposure. Currently, I just have names and genres (for some), but I may expand to include titles and descriptions, if there's enough interest.
I met many of the authors on the list at the Evansville, Ind., Barnes & Noble author day. I was stuck in the back with copies of "The Developers," but I noticed that most people were having trouble selling due to the large number of authors there.
I'm hoping that other authors will be interested in adding this list to their websites, as I can send the necessary code or even a tab-delimited file of the information. If you are an author and would like to be included on this list, just send me your information using the form below.
