AuthorsdB looks a lot like IMDb, rightfully so. Authors and their books should have a comparable data base like celebrities, TV and movies. Good for writers, good for readers.
Submitting your info is a snap. Fortunately, they list pretty much everywhere your books are for sale and the social media links that matter. Instead of just having a few links like Amazon, Twitter, Facebook–you’ll get Smashwords, Apple, Sony, Kobo, B & N, your sites, Goodreads, Google Plus, LinkedIn and more if you want. Plus you can upload photos, video, audio. They have book cover contests, blogger awards, lots going on. Here’s a profile that came together in minutes: http://authorsdb.com/authors-directory/2700-jason-matthews.
