But there's one big problem.... There's no easy way for authors and readers to find one another. Until now.
Introducing BuzzReads.com, the one-stop source for writing that's fresh, new and free!
BuzzReads (http://buzzreads.com) is a clearinghouse — a meeting hub — for authors with something free to offer and readers with open minds to come together. Fiction, nonfiction, adult and children’s lit, mystery, romance, sci-fi, thrillers and just about every other type of writing is supported.
Here's how it works:
An author with something free to offer readers (an ebook, app, sample chapter or standalone story or poem) fills out BuzzReads' online form. If accepted, their offer is listed on the site and in the weekly BuzzReads Report e-mail update. Readers who want the freebie go directly to the author’s site and download the story, poem, sample chapters or ebook.
In the spirit of "free", there's no cost for authors or readers. It’s entirely free to list and it’s free to read the blog and receive the e-mail Report.
The site is the brainchild of Jon Bard, Managing Editor of Children’s Book Insider, the Newsletter for Children’s Writers. "I was working on a project involving the author Cory Doctorow when my eyes were opened to the potential of authors building their careers by giving away their work," he said. "And I soon realized that there was a hunger among readers to get great free writing. But there was no central place for authors and writers to find one another. So I built it!"
The site launches officially in September and is now accepting submissions from authors at http://www.buzzreads.com/?
