From Shelf Awareness
FiledBy, Inc., has launched the Beta version of filedbyauthor, a website that offers a "large-scale author-centric promotional platform to provide every author that has been published in the U.S. or Canada a free, hosted, e-commerce enabled web page ready to be claimed and enhanced." The company, based in Nashville, Tenn., was co-founded by Peter Clifton, a former Ingram executive, and Mike Shatzkin, head of the Idea Logical Co. and publishing industry strategist extraordinaire.
"All authors, regardless of publishing category are encouraged to visit the site, claim their page, make corrections, and enrich them in a variety of ways," Clifton, president and CEO, said in a statement. "We hope to level the web marketing playing field for all authors, eliminate some of the challenges authors face when designing their online presence, and help every author become more easily discoverable through a highly optimized site."
