Every indie author I know is looking for ways to maximize their exposure and reinforce their legitimacy. This evening, I found a free database tool called AUTHORSdB that does exactly that.
Here’s how they describe themselves:
Here at AUTHORSdB we’ve formed the only FREE database of authors, including social media, book listings and much more, for today’s mine-field of thousands of aspiring and established writers.
ADB is a place where information is available on your favorite authors and where you can learn more about up-and-coming authors. Readers no longer have to google from several different websites to find out more about a particular author – it’s all here.
Authors are able to find listings for new and established author services to help make their writing life just that bit easier.
And it’s all 100% FREE.
I created my listing tonight, and it couldn’t be easier: Select your username and password, verify your email address, and start filling out your text fields. Final step is to upload images to go with your listing. They even run a drawing for extra publicity–in the form of a banner on their website–if you blog about their existence.
It’s worth looking into, since even though they seem very new, their past banners have been seen over 70 million times in 2012.
