Simon & Schuster Introduces Online Community For Its Authors

simonSimon & Schuster has launched an online portal for its authors to connect with other authors called S&S InkedIn.

The feature, which is currently only available to Simon & Schuster authors, allows writers to connect and have one-on-one or group discussions. The tool is accessible through LinkedIn and through the publisher’s recently redesigned author portal.

“Simon & Schuster’s authors are a talented and knowledgeable community that, using S&S InkedIn, can come together for the purposes of sharing information, advising each other, and enjoying the unique, only-an-author-would-understand camaraderie and inspiration of their peers in a private,  professional social network,” stated Ellie Hirschhorn, Executive Vice President and Chief Digital Officer of Simon & Schuster.
