I was approached by the people at Shepherd a few weeks back to list my novel on their new website. They are a startup and a little reminiscent of my old business, Underground Book Reviews. Their angle are book lists recommendations written by the authors themselves. It's a "novel" approach to book marketing.
Each author writes five book recommendations that in some way relate to their title. My Shepherd book page is no exception. I have read each of these five books, all five in some way inspired by novel Black Sea Gods.
They appear to host a mix indie and traditional published books. The staff was friendly and professional. I have a hunch they are trying to take on Goodreads. As I hold Goodreads in the highest disdain, I'm rooting for Shepherd.
Whether it makes any difference in my book sales will remain to be seen, but I do wish them the best of luck. If you haven't read my flagship novel Black Sea Gods, visit Shepherd to begin your journey, or explore their vast library of other titles and book lists.
