Great Resources for Authors and Publishers

Best resources for 2013
Here is the next installment of the January writers' resource list.

Association of American Publishers (AAP): AAP's 300 members comprise premier publishers of entertainment, education, scientific and professional content, and deliver that content to global audiences through the latest technology. Writers in various genres can use the site to find valuable contacts.

Association of Author's Representatives (AAR): While primarily for agents, the AAR is a site writers can use to confirm that the agent of interest has a solid reputation.

aStore: For writers seeking their own store featuring Amazon products, this site is worth investigating. aStore by Amazon is a quick way to create a professional online store that can be embedded in, or linked to or from, your website. Writers can choose products to complement or augment their current offerings.

Author Buzz: Founded in 2005, this fee-based marketing service links authors with booksellers, librarians, readers and reading groups. It gets the buzz out through key online publications, such as Book Movement, Dear Reader, Kindle Nation Daily, Publishers Marketplace and Shelf-Awareness. Author Buzz works with fiction, nonfiction, young adult, middle grade and picture book authors, and tailors its programs to their needs and budget.
