Shelf Pleasure: A Destination Website for Women

Bookworms Kristen Weber and Stacy Michelle teamed up to create Shelf Pleasure (, a destination website for women who love to read and want to share their great finds.

Packed with fun and informative articles about books and authors, Shelf Pleasure launched a few weeks ago as a go-to source for the latest book news and trends. This dynamic online community features open forums, a monthly book club, and a place to connect with your favorite authors through interviews and live chats.

Still very low traffic, but this site might develop into something very good for authors, especially those who appeal to women. Check it out now and see if you can become a featured author.
