Other publishers take note: Harper launches "AuthorAssistant"

Publishers Weekly reports that Harper has launched a new service for its authors that allows them to have a Web precense without having to create and host their own site (or pay someone to do that stuff for them).

The pages will have bio info, tblogs, photos and personalized links to outside sites. Consumers can also connect with other fans through these author pages.

[Full diclosure: Possible drawbacks: will they look cookie cutter? Will it be as easy to read a bunch of blogs as it is on LJ? Will fans be able to find you? And what about peole who have published with more than one publisher - such as moi? - will HC allow mention of those other books? Still, it seems a good idea.
