"ites Added 4*56*76)http)**www.authornation.com* Another networking site by authors for authors. his site, so far, looks like it will be most useful postpublication as opposed to pre publication, but still a useful ally in your networking arsenal.http)**bookmarket.ning.com* &ike the 3ublished Authors 2etwork, this is a 2ing network, so it is very similar to 3ublished Authors. "ince they are both 2ing networks, you get the added bonus of having your contacts in one network automatically updated in the other.http)**www.goodreads.com* A book cataloging site, similar to &ibraryhing, but much better in my opinion. /or one thing, I have so far received a much warmer welcome from the 8ood9eads community than I have from &ibraryhing: they seem much more welcoming of authors who are there to promote their own works as well as discuss other authors works. /or another thing, I find the organi-ation and usability of the navigation system much more userfriendly than &ibraryhing. 8ood9eads also offers the added bonus of linking with /acebook to help you network ' very useful.http)**www.shelfari.com* his is
my favorite of the book cataloging sites that I’ve discovered so far. &ike 8ood9eads, the community here has so far been much more friendly to me than the &ibraryhing community, and also like 8ood9eads it is very userfriendly and easy to use. It is very easy to build a network of people who like similar books as yourself at both of these two sites ' not so much at &ibraryhing. (ut not only that, the
of the site is very welcoming and appealing, as well.http)**www.createspace.com* Ama-on’s answer to &u&u.com, a great resource for the selfpublished author. As I am currently in the prepublication stage of my marketing, I can’t offer any personal experience on either ;reate"pace or &u&u at the moment, but from what I’ve heard, the biggest disadvantage to using &u&u is that the print uality is often pretty shoddy ' from what I can see of ;reate"pace, however, it seems to have a foot up on &u&u on that front. 2ot sure how the royalty percentages compare, but I’m sure I’ll find out as I get closer to publication. Ama-on also offers a free service that makes it easy to convert your ebook into <indle format, so definitely check that out! =our royalty rate is determined by the list price, publication si-e, etc. /or ebooks, you get >?@.http)**www.apexreviews.net* If you are any kind of published author and you haven’t yet heard of this site, you need to check it out. hey offer a variety of review and marketing packages, prices ranging from 6 to 77B.
