100 sites for fiction writers: #32 - Kindle Author

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.

Kindle Author

Kindle AuthorWith more and more writers taking the plunge and publishing their own works digitally, how can readers and other writers keep up with all the new names and e-books hitting the market? Easy. You go to a site like Kindle Author.

Every day of the week there is a new posting about a Kindle e-book. Some of these posts are reviews while others are sponsorships, basically advertising, paid for by the author(s) of the e-book presented.

Thousands of people go to the Kindle Author site each month, making it an excellent place for writers to have their works spotlighted.

But advertising is only one reason writers should check out this site. What's another reason? Well, keeping up with what other writers are doing, of course.

There are also informational postings at this site, such as How to Create a Book Cover for Your Kindle E-book.

There are also interviews with Kindle authors, such as Amanda HockingM.R. Mathias, and Ty Johnston.
So who runs the Kindle Author site? A busy man, that's who. David Wisehart is not only a novelist himself, but he's also a screenwriter, director and film producer.

E-book novelists wanting to keep up with their peers should pay attention to this website, and it might not hurt to do a little advertising, too.
