New York, NY (PRWEB) August 28, 2009
Morgan James Publishing, a leading publisher of business, self-help and marketing books, announced today that they are now using FiledBy sites as an effective way to provide an online presence and a digital marketing solution for their authors.
The FiledBy platform enables authors, co-authors, illustrators, photographers, editors and other book contributors to easily build an online community where they can promote their work and interact with fans and peers.
"FiledBy has put together an incredibly effective community that enables authors to take control of their own content, sell their books, link to other sites and directly communicate with readers," said David Hancock, Founder of Morgan James. "It's a dynamic marketing platform for any author looking for a no-cost, low-cost and effective web presence. In fact, I'm telling our authors all they need is their blog, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and FiledBy for an effective online presence."
Morgan James was founded as a creative, close collaboration between author and publisher to implement new and more innovative ways to communicate with booksellers and readers. "Morgan James makes an extraordinary effort to help its authors to grow their own business," according to Publishers Weekly's Lynn Andriani and Jim Milliot. Morgan James was even selected for Fast Company Magazine, Readers Choice, Fast 50 for 2006 for their leading creative thinking, significant accomplishments and standing to have a significant impact on publishing industry over the next 10 years.
"One of the most important elements of the Morgan James philosophy is to create a special and unique relationship between publisher and author, providing intense focus, clarity and execution of every book we publish, not only to maximize revenue from their book royalties, but also to build new business and increase their revenue substantially through follow-on sales to their readers," said Rick Frishman, Publisher, Morgan James. "Authors are our business, and we are looking to partner with those companies that we feel are ahead of the curve in serving the author and reader. Unquestionably, FiledBy fills an extraordinary need for all authors, for the first time, to be discovered under one virtual roof. We at Morgan James look forward to working with FiledBy to increase the profile of all our authors and applaud their creative energy, which serves the publishing community as a whole."
FiledBy's more than 3 million pre-assembled author sites include information on an author's work and can integrate photographs, biographies, videos, podcasts, press kits, blogging tools, event listings, custom graphics and more. For authors without a website, FiledBy is a free or low-cost solution that can be set up in advance of a book's publication date and provides them with control over their content, helps sell books and can serve as their primary online platform. For others, it's a community that complements and links to existing author websites, Facebook pages, publisher pages or blogs, providing a tool for an author to organize everything, and at the same time providing the reader with a road map of an author's digital presence and a means to communicate with the author.
"Our goal is to help more readers discover authors, communicate directly with them and purchase their work," said Peter Clifton, FiledBy president & CEO. "We are very pleased to be working with Morgan James Publishing because their business model is innovative, forward looking and relies on technology and efficiencies brought about through self publishing, print on demand and world class bookstore distribution. We are proud to be included in their cutting edge mix of tools to help authors be more successful."
