New platform connects authors, artists and speakers with schools and the media
CHANDLER, AZ (April 2018)—For 33 years, award-winning publisher Linda F. Radke and her team at Story Monsters LLC® have made it their mission to give authors, artists and expert speakers ways to produce, publicize and market their books.
In an effort to create an even larger hub for professionals to connect, the company has merged its successful online booking platforms, AuthorsandExperts.com and SchoolBookings.com into a powerful new platform called AuthorBookings.com.
To celebrate the 19th anniversary of the original AuthorsandExperts.com site launch, AuthorBookings.com is offering the limited-time price of only $19.99 for a 12-month membership, compared to the standard $99 annual membership.
AuthorBookings.com makes it easier than ever for authors to list their information and availability for in-person and online events and interviews. In addition to the standard bio and author photo, the new platform accommodates YouTube videos, the author’s website, the type of book and the topics it covers, social media links, and more. For creatives, it’s like having a publicity team in your pocket, since Radke and her team publicize the site and individual authors to their network of schools, libraries and media outlets.
Author Olivia Fox Cabane says, “…quick and easy. I had little to lose. So I sent in my listing and less than 24 hours later, I received an inquiry from Entrepreneur Magazine Radio show for an interview on networking—my field of expertise!”
The platform is free for schools, libraries and the media to use and authors can be found by name, category, type of book, targeted audience, topics or other relevant keywords through the search bar or search directory. For more information and to see a sample author listing, visit www.AuthorBookings.com.
Television and Radio Host, Jack E. Jett says, “It’s a fairly easy task to find guests for a radio or television show, it is another to find interesting guests … I keep thinking they are going to send me an invoice someday for all the help they provide. They are what talent bookers refer to as a gold mine.”
