Pembroke Pines, Fl (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
UmeNow, the 'People Only' private social network that has banned all tracking, announced today that it has expanded to include a section where members and visitors can view recommended books. UmeNow editors select which books to promote without sharing their rating system. Authors and publishers can directly request to have their books featured within UmeNow, provided the book is available for purchase online. While all genres are welcomed, it is against company policy to promote any form of pornography or erotica. Books that fall into these categories will not be considered.
Independent authors can also expect to be listed within the "recommended book" section, with no preference given to authors who are published through major houses.
"Indie authors are proving that they too can produce great work. We acknowledge this by actively searching for Indie authors that are unknown," stated Evelyn Castillo-Bach, CEO of UmeNow.
Authors also have the option to join UmeNow and start blogs to promote themselves and their work. However, UmeNow editors do not show a preference to authors who are also UmeNow members. Submissions to UmeNow editors must include a link to the book showing where it can be purchased online. Interested authors should write: editors (at) umenow (dot) com.
