As a formerly self-published author, I can't help but keep my eyes and ears open for great, new tools for the guerrilla marketing writer. Here's a new and exciting website being launched soon to help self-published authors gain better visibility. aims to give self-published/POD (aka Indie) books an interactive and buzz-worthy platform, a place where they're not treated like second-class citizens because they're self-published. Authors at IndieReader will get increased visibility (the site's founder has 20+ years in PR), a sales venue, and a website page with their own URL.

"Just as Sundance has done for Indie films,'s mission is to promote and legitimize independent books and authors," says founder Amy Holman Edelman.

The site is slated to go live on June 1st.

So, if you're a self-published author, get on Facebook and GoodReads, check out, and see if can help readers find your book.
