AUTHORS DATABASE

Under the auspices of the group ASMSG (http://asmsgbooks.wordpress.com/) I came across something called the Authors Database. This is a platform for all authors, whether you be Indie or trad published to list everything about you and your work. You can have links to all the platforms you publish with, whether it be Kobo, Smashwords or Amazon. Your links to Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads or whatever platform you use can be added. This is a fantastic place for authors and readers and all free of charge.
Here's the blurb about what they are, and what they do.

AUTHORS DATABASE


We are a dedicated website that helps authors for free.  Why free ? We have a few Angels who simply want to see authors flourish.
"There are very few places where authors are able to add their information, one time, including promoting links to buy their books on all bookseller platforms. A place where authors continue to write while expert SEO people can assist in Social Media Marketing for free.  Authors need an unbiased place to shout out about their creative works without 'big brother's' controlwithout fear of loosing to unknown algorithms."
-Angel Investor-
