If you have already published a book, have you joined Hometown Reads—San Diego? At least ten current Guild members have.
Why join Hometown Reads? Check out their About page.
We’re a community dedicated to serving local authors across the country, by helping them connect with readers in their hometown through what we call the Read Local movement. Our 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.
It's free for both authors and readers to join. Authors get an author webpage where information about both author and their works are included. For an author without a website, this is a big plus. Readers can sign up to receive updates.
The most recent update included information about Hometown Reads weekly Book Marketing Action Podcasts with Founder, Becky Robinson. Sign up to receive new episodes every Tuesday.
Hometown Reads is also looking for stories about how you are handling book launches during this year, especially if you have information about how the pandemic has altered your book launch plans.
