Your Next Favorite Author Could Be Your Next Door Neighbor!
I just discovered Hometown Reads, a free online platform highlighting authors by geographical location, connecting local writers to local readers. The website features 75+ cities and connects readers to 3,500+ books written by 2,000+ authors.
Hometown Reads is a community dedicated to serving local authors across the country, by helping them connect with readers in their hometown through what they call the Read Local movement. The site is the first of its kind to organize authors by local community, a design that is intended to facilitate both networking for authors and exposure/connection to more readers.
