There’s a new author platform in town and it’s called Hometown Reads. It was started in March, 2016 with the intent of connecting readers with their local authors. It wasn’t long before word spread. When Fresno authors heard about this opportunity to get their city listed, they jumped into action. It took 10 authors to participate before our city could be added to the website.
Five San Joaquin Sisters-in-Crime members filled the list. Carrie Padgett, Cora Ramos, Krista Lynn, Gloria Getman and Sunny Frazier all have their book covers displayed as well as their author profiles.
While Fresno is considered home base, the various towns where the authors reside are also listed. From Fresno are Krista Lynn, Cora Ramos, Linda Lee Kane and Bryan Clark. Carrie Padgett represents Madera, Gloria Getman in Exeter, Sunny Frazier in Lemoore, Jolene Polyack in Kingsburg, Susan Lowe in Sanger, Summer Lane in Reedley and Steven Hammond in Clovis.
If you are a local author or know an author who should be included, please pass on the information. The site is also looking for others cities to participate.
