Pindies United on The Bookshelf


I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was involved in a an exciting new initiative with loveahappyending.com - a magazine style website with energy and zing that has been around for less than two years and which continues to forge ahead with innovative ideas to support its authors in an everchanging publishing climate.

The latest feature on the site is called The Bookshelf. The common thread with The Bookshelf is that the books presented are being actively marketed. This means either a traditional publisher, or a media-aware author, is behind each title with an unwavering campaign to get that title noticed.


So on the site you will find exciting new authors and the publishers who support them, together with independent authors like myself, who are trying to make their mark. This innovative idea to bring Pindies together in support of each other – both traditionally published and independently published authors – is ground breaking in its synergy.


The Loveahappyending Bookshelf is all about inviting YOU to be instrumental in discovering the next ‘hot’ author, and so helping to spread the word!


 

 

To keep in step with this new development and my involvement with loveahappyending as an associate editor as well as a featured author – I have launched a new venture of my own in connection with the website and am now editing a twice monthly brand new and tartantastic  ‘Bookshelf Reviews’ feature to support the authors and publishers involved. Check out my November features below and why not follow Loveahappyending.com on Twitter and catch all the tweets by using hashtag #lahe

 



I’d be very interested to hear your thoughts about the website, the collaborate support venture between authors and publishers, and the magazine style posts featured on Loveahappyending.com

So please do feel free to leave a comment.
