Writing & Publishing Links

At eReaderPerks, our goal is simple: to help people who love to read discover fabulous, new-to-them authors. If you are an author (or author’s publisher) and your book is going to be temporarily discounted on the Amazon, Kobo, Nook, Google, and/or Apple websites, we’d love to be able to help you spread the word. Please see this link for advertising opportunities for authors and publishers.
