As a newly published author, I am always looking for new social media sites to join and other websites to network with more Indie Authors and more readers.

I came across AUTHORSdB and thought I would share this with my readers as well as other Indie Authors.  It appears to be a great place for authors, so please take a look and let me know the pros and cons of this website. 

From the  AUTHORSdB  website:

At AUTHORSdB we've formed the only database of authors, including social media, book listings and much more, for today's mine-field of thousands of aspiring and established writers.

We are a dedicated website that helps authors for free.   

Why free? We have a few Angels who simply want to see authors flourish.  Readers no longer have to Google from several different websites to find out more about a particular author – it’s all here.

AUTHORSdB uses software that engages search engines in a friendly manner.  As an AUTHORSdB author you can enjoy the benefits:

  • Organic (non-paid) Google backlinks are critical to any Social Media Marketing.  There is no guarantee however authors on AUTHORSdB are enjoying being indexed in Google in less than 24 hours.  See for yourself, in April we have over 25,000+.  Google search: and see if your listing comes up.  We tweet Google alerts when authors get indexed in Google via our alert (because of the overwhelming amount of indexing that happens because of our SEO system, we are not able to tweet about everyone listed).
