Free Blogs, Reduced Rates Help Authors, Experts Shoulder Tough Economy



CHANDLER, AZ (July 13, 2010) – The premier website that's been matching authors, experts and speakers with potential clients and the media since 1999, AuthorsandExperts.com, recently reduced its rates to help published writers and professional presenters weather the volatile economy, and now offers free blogs so members can better connect with current and prospective clientele.

Effective immediately, Standard Membership is now only $4.95 per month, down from $14.95. Plus, with each yearly renewal, members get a free 30-minute consultation with Linda Radke, president of Five Star Publications, who has been helping clients produce and market award-winning books since 1985. That's a $100 value! 

In addition, all Featured Listing and Five Star A&E members receive free blogs on their member profile page. For authors, the blog is a sales tool for books and articles, as well as a highly visible location to announce book tours, availability of subsidiary rights and launch new manuscripts. Both authors and experts can also post royalty-free articles on their blogs for the media to publish, blog about book signings and speaking engagements, and post reviews and sales promotions. 
       
All of this is above and beyond the searchable directory listing, automatic media notification and online public calendar of events all members already receive.
