I wanted to take a moment and tell all of you about the new sister site of LWI, https://authorssupportingauthors.wordpress.com/.
The following is from the About page.
Welcome to AuthorsSupportingAuthors, Authors United to Make Dreams Come True. Here is my vision for the site. Authors join and agree to help each other with book launches. This is a central place to go to in order to find people to:
- Agree to host some aspect of a book launch.
- Find out if there are book launches occurring that might compete with their own.
- Find people to form critique groups.
- Find Beta-Readers.
- Find advice from veteran Authors.
There will be pages for various things such as book launch requests, as well as another idea I have in mind. But I’ll be asking some advice for that.
What’s one key to being successful? Getting it right from the beginning. You need as many people involved as possible to get your launch out there in a group. Hit that number 1 on Amazon and you can use Best Selling for you book. But my idea is not a one day hit at #1. We want days there. By using this site I hop authors can and will plan their launches to benefit each other. Publishers do that. They schedule their launch dates to not fight books in the same genre from their own company.
For the Indie Author, the Indie Authors are the company. And we are the biggest company in the world.
The site is to remain professional. If you don’t like what’s going on, or agree with something, by all means you may visit another site. This isn’t the place for drama or games. We are here to help each other. I have my other sites to run and I will be giving this one equal attention, but any drama and comments will be deleted. I don’t do that on other sites, but this one MUST remain respectful and professional in order to work moving forward.
Currently there is a Book Launches page and a Become an Author on ASA page.
Our first effort has been for the launch of PS Bartlett’s book Demons & Pearls set to Release on April 14. We had been agree to host her launch and her Thunderclap has surpassed its original goal and is still going.
This is not a site that I will be necessarily operating as in making decisions every moment. This will be a site to facilitate each of you to find out when launches are happening, and help each other set up book launch posts, Thunderclap campaigns, and other promotional ideas. Pre-order parties. Anything you can think of.
The site will be working through my Twitter Handle, @RonovanWrites as it has the support to help with the venture. As more Authors are added, see the Become an Author on ASA page for details, our reach will grow.
We also have a Google+ Community Authors Supporting Authors you may ask to join. Like there would be a no to someone joining, right?
