Author's Promoter has been at development stage since August 2012; when founder and author Charles J Deguara, from Florida USA looked for a service he was unable to find. Starting with no available capital for the venture he allocated resources from his other established businesses and his own income to develop the concept. With the help and support of a number of people; authors and readers the concept quickly started becoming a reality.
Author's Promoter is proud to announce the official launch this May and invite readers and authors to visit the network of sites developed with them in mind. The main site features authors from around the world, with a page dedicated to each author containing information about them and browse-able in a number of ways such as country, type of writing, genre as well as alphabetically or randomly. This site is developed with readers in mind giving them a way to find new authors they would like to read about. Authors are invited to get in contact to be featured in the site, the service is complimentary and open to all authors to ensure that the readers get the best out of the site and find their favourite authors.
The network of sites also includes a site for authors, with resources, articles, publishers, featured useful sites for authors, featured service providers and much more. The articles are written with the author in mind, one such article reveals reveals How a $5.9 billion revenue publishing company is setting over 150,000 "Self-Published" Authors up for Failure and cutting into the self-published author's profit to the tune of over 30%. Titled the Gimmick of self-publishing it is a must read if you have self-published.
The other sites are still at development phase however the team at Author's Promoter have chosen to take a live development approach and are adding content daily to the sites; the sites include a community site for authors and a book site with sample chapters for readers to browse through. Furthermore they are working on a fifth site in offline status that is set to revolutionize the way readers find and choose the works they read; currently finalising the concept and are looking for venture capitalists to assist in the funding of this project.
