The creators of LibraryThing have added a new feature for members who are also authors. (Since I mentioned being an author in my profile, I got to be part of the initial group of 20.) This adds a new section to our profile page (shown here) and links to a page featuring the author’s titles that have been catalog in LibraryThing. You can read more about how it works on the LibraryThing blog.
I think this is a wonderful idea especially since it can help “smaller” authors such as myself promote our work. I did suggest that they add a feature that on a book’s page, when the author is a member, that a link be added back to the author’s profile page. I’ll let you know what sort of response I get back on that.
So, if you’re an author and have a LibraryThing account let them know (through the blog post above) and get yourself added to the program. If you don’t have an account, get one (it’s free), catalog 50 books making sure you include yours, and then let them know.
Thanks to Steven M. Cohen for turning me on to LibraryThing in the first place!
