BookTour Closed down November 25, 2011

BookTour

BookTour is a free directory of author events. It allows users to find when certain authors are coming to a local area for a presentation or a talk in a simple manner.

Using a simple interface the author can create a personal profile page that displays their biography, book, and upcoming events. Events can also be added by people who know about local events concerning the author.

With that users are able to search the database for not only their favorite authors in the area, but also look at lists of the most popular events in town. Users are allowed to subscribe to their authors in a RSS feed type format such that they are constantly updated with their authors status. BookTour is based in San Francisco.
