    AuthorDiscovery

    Just got an invite to register and get seen by agents and editors. Friends are emailing. Anyone have any insights? I didn't find in index and did a search.

    Thanks!

    Want to be seen by agents and editors?

    Get the agents' and editors' guidelines and submit your work in accordance with those guidelines.

    Mr. Amaru has some good basic ideas, but nothing earthshakingly different. His own sales of two books (one a self-publishing guide) appear to be lackluster. So why are agents and publishers going to line up to scrutinize his display site? Hint: they probably won't.

    The person running the site has published a novel in 2011 (with a current Amazon rank in the 3 millions for the paperback) and is part owner of The Pantheon Collective. Among the statements on the TCP "about" page:
    Their MISSION: to empower and inspire (aspiring) authors to take control of their destinies and make their dreams come true.
    and
    Their OBJECTIVE: successfully launch books and an author services company while documenting every moment both wonderful and difficult.

    Not very inspiring. I'll stick with the display sites I know. Wattpad has movie industry ties now. Archiveofourown.org has Naomi Novik and many other moonlighting pro writers. FFnet...has entertaining troll wars.

    Thanks all. Just as a I thought. My friends reach out to me as I am the one among us to keep an "eye" on what's going on. I hadn't heard of these folks but if anyone had, I knew it would be someone here.
