As a shopping platform, With love, the author offers a great experience to readers worldwide. Because let’s be honest, nothing makes avid book fans happier than personally receiving a book from a beloved author in the mail! Authors can post their titles on the website for readers to purchase. Readers can request a signed copy for themselves or as a gift to someone else.
This platform is the ideal opportunity for indie authors to bring their books to readers’ attention, because on regular book shopping websites, the landing page only features the well-known bestsellers. With love, the author thinks it is important that especially indie authors who dedicate so much of their time to gain an audience and stand out deserve to shine on our website.
Of course, established authors who would like to sell their books in a more personal way are also more than welcome.
The benefits of registering as an author on With love, the author.
