This Is Writing is a book-centric site for both writers and readers. The site is neat and well organized. For writers, there is a wealth of goodies to take advantage of on this site. The site provides free book marketing opportunities in the form of:
- Author Interview Spotlights
- Book Except Posts
- Guest Posts
- Book Reviews
And when I say book reviews, I don’t mean 2 or 3 vague statements which could apply to any random book in the same genre. These are very well-written reviews: 3-4 paragraphs of detailed critique and opinion of the book. I was quite satisfied with the Review that my book, Dominic’s Nemesis received. I also availed myself of the Book Excerpt and Author Interview services…very nice. In addition to the great book marketing opportunities for indie authors, there is also a detailed Writer’s Resource Page, complete with lots of links to online writing classes, book cover design services, tax advice for writers, self-publishing help and a lot more. Some of the links are for paid services and other for free resources…definitely worth a look if you’re just getting started or looking to improve your craft.
This is Writing site is also a mecca for avid readers. Readers can subscribe to the site and get a weekly email of eBook recommendations form new and Indie authors. This is a free service. But even if you’re not much of a joiner, there’s a great many book reviews and excerpts posted on there to browse through. Avid readers can easily scout out their next good read.
