New AuthorsDen Feature a Must for Authors, Book Publicists

I have been an AuthorsDen.com user since I started writing--maybe about 20ish years or so.  My #SharingwithWriters newsletter is powered by AuthorsDen and at certain levels, the site works well as a new writer's substitute Web site and certainly well as a network to other authors.  Well, now they've done it again. They have always been a resource for finding authors to review your book, but it wasn't formalized and now this! Here is what it's all about--straight from the AuthorsDen team!

Great News! 
Gold Members can now add up to 3 books into the AuthorsDen Book Review Program

The AuthorsDen Book Review Program 
is a win-win for Authors, Readers, Book Clubs, Bloggers and the Media 
by getting the word out about your books through honest book reviews. 

Review Requests 
In just 2 weeks authors have received over 70 requests from Reviewer to read and review 
their books, and some books have received multiple review requests. 

How it works
1) Add your book into the Book Review Program
2) Reviewer/Reader requests to read and review your ebook or paperback. 
3) YOU qualify the Reviewer by “accepting” or “declining” the request. 
4) If accepted we securely provide the ebook, if paperback is requested, you mail at your expense. 
5) Reviewer reads and provides you a detailed book review. 
6) We will email you a link to your review when its ready. 

Read the FAQ Page in your Den to find many detailed answers to questions. 

Your Friends at AuthorsDen.com 

Go to AuthorsDen.com. Sign up. And get busy!  And now I've got you in the "getting reviews mode,"  grab a copy--paper or e-book--of my How to Get Great Book Reviews Frugally and Ethically.  Reviews are a forever kind of marketing and one of my favorites.  


"Most book reviewers are not authors, but actual professional book reviewers or bloggers.
I mention this now as we are putting a great deal of effort in marketing to and personally inviting book reviewers,
true authors can use the program to review other authors books, but of the 70 requests to date,
only about 20 are from authors, the rest have no author profile page on AuthorsDen, as they are not authors.

This brings up our next development.
Readers will soon have mini profile pages on AuthorsDen
for authors to see the reviews those reviewers have posted
and for other readers to follow reviewer recommendation.

Even more good news:  

We will be launching ReadersDen.com
for readers, reviewers, their profiles, reviews, recommendations, reader followers, 
so that should clear up any missed communication about who is doing the reading and reviewing.
