From time to time, new websites come and go that promote, especially “indie” authors and try to unite authors with their readership. Such a site is the new one set up by Paul White, called Sneak Peek. I’m always a bit wary of these websites, simply because they do tend to come onto the scene with a flourish and then become a haven for authors, with very few readers actually visiting them.
Sneak Peek is determined not to be a “flash in the pan” and, so, I’m happy to promote it to readers and “indie” authors everywhere. God knows, we need to get our message out to our readership that we exist and we are worth reading.
Someone said to me the other day that the biggest problem facing “indie” authors is a really simple one; OBSCURITY! We are just one fish in an enormous ocean, most of which is filled by a single conglomerate, called Amazon. Hopefully, Sneak Peek will help us to rise out of that obscurity and get noticed by the people most important to us, as authors – THE READERS!
The Sneak Peek website is available to check out here. I would encourage readers and authors alike to sign up, and enjoy the benefits of membership.
The website offers a variety of interesting and fascinating information for readers and authors alike, but its primary function will be to bring the two partners together.
Some of the features offered by the website include:
The LIBRARY. This is where all the books can be found. On this page, readers can scroll down to see all the listed books, or, by clicking on any ‘Genre’ tab they can see all books from that (and associated) categories.
The READERS CLUB LOUNGE: This is where you find out about all the good stuff going on; the current offers, events, competitions, news, giveaways, in fact, anything that’s going on at Sneak Peek will be right there. They are constantly updating this page, so be sure to visit the Readers Lounge regularly to keep an eye on all the latest ‘Stuff’!
NOTE: The Readers club lounge is ONLY accessible to registered members, so you will need to join up, to access this.
COLLECTORS EDITIONS: This page shows entire series, trilogies etc. that fans will want to ‘collect’.
EDITORS CHOICE: is the ‘book(s) of the month’ page.
AUTHORS INSIGHT: allows author’s to have a ‘mini blog’ about anything to do with writing, writers, writers life, reading/books.
AUTHOR DIRECTORY: This offers readers an insight into the authors, their books and their social networking pages, websites and so on. A great way to get in touch with your favourite author.
THE SITE THAT BRINGS READERS & AUTHORS TOGETHER.
These types of ventures can only succeed if readers and authors buy into them, so why not check it out and give it a once-over. We all need exposure.
Remember here is the link again. Sneak Peek
