If you are a Colorado author, you can list yourself and your books, complete with purchase links, on the site absolutely free. There is a (currently underutilized) calendar of author events. I'm keen on this feature, because my vision for the site is as a place for readers go to to find, among other things, local author events.
Some of the other features of the site are
- author blogs
- web links to places such as author or book home pages or Facebook pages
- reader ratings and reviews of books
- purchase links to major print and ebook sellers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, and Indiebound
The easiest way for an author to use the site is to use the "Add my book" main menu option. By filling out a single form, author and book pages will be automatically added to the site's database. We periodically review entries to refine them, such as adding details needed for purchase links to appear.
More advanced users may wish to create a login on the site, where they can claim ownership of their author and book pages to get access to further features not available through the Add my book form, such as a field for listing book awards.
So if you are a Colorado author who wants to add to their online presence, I encourgae you to visit the Colorado Literary Network at cololitnet.com.
