The Hope for Authors Project


HELP A READER (and Author) OUT…

My partner, Tom Royce, and I are working on a new project to help “under-promoted” authors get their books in the hands of readers. Check it out at or by clicking the banner above and let us know your suggestions.

We’re looking for experts in publishing and social/digital media who are willing to share tips on how to successfully promote books and build authors’ brand. An interactive and reciprocal approach where we offer contributors a free e-book of Web 2.0 book marketing tools.

I found this video and thought it a PERFECT depiction of why Hope For Authors is so important.
