Shepherd is reimagining book discovery for the online world.
I love walking around bookstores and browsing until something grabs my attention. I am reimagining that feeling for the online world. I want to help readers bump into books they would otherwise not find and give them ways to follow their curiosity between topics and concepts.
And I want to help authors meet more readers. Authors illuminate our world, take us on faraway journeys, and entertain us. There is a growing trend that authors have to become their own marketing team. That concerns me because it is very difficult to do, and it takes time away from writing. I want to make it easier for authors to market themselves and sell more books.
What do you offer readers?
I love wandering around bookstores and letting random books capture my attention. Nothing will ever replace the “bookstore experience”, but I want to reimagine book discovery online with a lot more serendipity and delight.
What do you offer authors?
Shepherd gives authors a way to introduce themselves and one of their books to readers who are the best match for their books. And, that is entirely free. We have more info here on how we help authors as well.
