As a publisher and a writer, I wanted to see if there was a place where author's profiles could be centralised. While isn't exactly that, it seems to be a very good resource for myself and my authors.

We found this great online community through a fellow writing blogger friend of ours!  Thank you for welcoming us!

Happy Writing,

Tammy & Mike

I'm a newbie to the publishing world. My first non-fiction book just got published and I started searching for writer forums on the internet to get tips on how to market it. was one of the top sites for my search query. And unlike the bigger forums where it's easy to get lost in the crowd, this seemed like a smaller, close-knit community. So I got registered.


I'm also hoping to find some experienced authors (for my blog interviews) who'd be willing to share some insights about the publishing industry. I felt it'd be a good way for me to learn, and share the knowledge with my readers. I realized also has a similar initiative, so I wasn't sure if there'd be a conflict of interest in approaching authors on this forum. My guess is, there shouldn't be any. But I felt I should be transparent about it and get the views of folks who are reading this post.

An author friend of mine, Donald Simmons, introduced me to  I immediately came on over and started a page!  I am a dedicated writer.  If I go a day without writing and reading, I feel I have not completed my day!  I do not have a book published, YET, but I am working hard and very positive!
Just googled some author sites and stumbled across it.

I recently published my first book in a series, through Kindle, and was looking for advice from the experience of my peers. I googled Authors and found this wonderful site.

I saw a friend Tweet about it! Then I signed up and shared it with one of my Indie Author groups so they could come join!
