Writing is one of those precious gifts that man was endowed with. It affords authors the abilities to explore realms that we never thought they existed. It further empowers authors to take us through journeys that no one has ever been. Simply put, authors through their writings especially fictional writers offer us an escape from the harsh realities of the world something that everyone will certainly agree they need from time to time. After all in this world we are all in search of that safe “space” we can find and occupy, that could let us forget our troubles or relive someone’s life by identifying with the character(s) and that’s where authors become critical and do us justice by writing these wonderful pieces of art we call books.
Writing is a hard enough task that authors have to go through which is marked by countless sleepless nights and moments at the coffee machine but when it comes to getting that piece of work to the public who are your audience, it’s a definitely a different ball game. As a matter of fact authors who have self-published books have a difficult time having their books reaching their targeted audience and this was even difficult way before the onset of digitisation of books where once a book stopped selling it was removed from the shelves or since the book stores didn’t have shelf space it didn’t get the opportunity to feature on the book store shelves. These kinds of scenarios had caused authors to be demoralised and disillusioned about the whole writing as the best career move since they invested so much into the writing but had almost zero readership.
However, thanks to advancing technology and the onset of the internet and the “digital age” revolution, websites such as discussbook or simply “db” were born. discussbook is an online platform that affords authors the privilege of letting their work be put out there to the general public in order to garner substantive audience readership plus offer the audience the luxury of connecting with their authors a service that is rarely offered at least after the author has been done with his book tours in the case where the publisher can afford to take him on such a book tour. In the case of a self-published author then such luxury is not accorded to them. That’s why discussbook offers these kinds of authors that sort of service of engaging with their audience and getting that vital feedback that most often they don’t get.
discussbook values authors and appreciates that they spend money and time to develop wonderful content such that it allows you as an author to be able to promote your books for free. It enables you to be able to create a user profile which has features that will facilitate you promoting the books you have published and you can update it as many times as you publish or are thinking of publishing. It also enables authors to add posts regarding their published works or anything related or associated with authoring or books. Also through connecting with your audience you are able to answer the many questions they have in terms of what was your thought process before the work began or while you were writing or why did you choose this particular name for the protagonist plus so on and so forth.
