Bestseller Bound Celebrates Launch Party With Giveaways

If you enjoy reading books, then have I got a party for you. Bestseller Bound, a new site that connects small press and indie authors with one another as well as with readers, reviewers and book bloggers, is celebrating its launch party this month. Members of the site are eligible to enter a drawing for giveaways, ranging from free ebooks to being featured in the first Bestseller Bound newsletter.

Here is the press release below:

Readers and indie authors now have a brand new place to interact. The message board, Bestseller Bound, is having its grand opening. Author Darcia Helle created the forum with input from resident authors/moderators Stacy Juba and Maria Savva. Here, readers will get a behind the scenes glimpse into what it’s like to be a small press or independently published author. Resident and visiting authors will chat with readers about writing a book, how they do research and get their ideas, how they market their books, and the challenges they face. They’ll share articles, stories and poems, as well as special offers and discounts.

Readers are invited to hang out, ask questions and chat with tomorrow’s breakout writers. Small press and independently published authors are welcome to participate in the discussion, as well as post threads about their titles in the Connection Café, post a book trailer link, and browse the free Help Wanted section, where authors and book lovers can exchange guest blogging and review opportunities. According to the Bestseller Bound founders, indie and small press authors face some difficulties in being recognized by mainstream bookstores and libraries, which puts them at a disadvantage in reaching readers, and the forum is a way to bridge that gap. Members can also receive a free quarterly newsletter packed with information about indie books.

Helle is the author of romantic suspense novels including The Cutting Edge, Enemies and Playmates, Miami Snow, Hit List, No Justice and Beyond Salvation. Juba is the author of the mystery novels Twenty-Five Years Ago Today and Sink or Swim, along with the patriotic children’s picture book The Flag Keeper. Savva’s published novels are Coincidences, Second Chances, and A Time to Tell, and she has also published the short story collections Pieces of a Rainbow, and Love and Loyalty (and Other Tales.) More information about Bestseller Bound can be found at: Indie authors, readers, book bloggers, reviewers and anyone else with an interest in books is invited to register and participate in the discussion.

So head on over, join in the discussion and enter our giveaway!

    I agree, you are all great fun to hang with. I feel disconnected being away for a long weekend. not only didn’t I get a chance to read one word, I never checked e-mails. I’m correcting these two terrible facts today!
    I will catch up on the site tonight, and maybe actually finish my reviews of my last 2 books, bad Barbara!

    Thanks for this site, as a reader, I LOVE IT!


  5. Thanks for the nice words, Barbara. We love having readers like you there who appreciate the hard work of authors. I’ve been a little disconnected also the past few days — there are some days where it is just hard to get on the computer!
