Series question
« on: December 14, 2012, 04:16:09 pm »
Is this the right place to post this? If not sorry!

Ok so here is my question... is there a website or something like that, that will keep track of when a new book for a series I want to read or am reading comes out? I have a few series I am waiting on and it is a pain to check on all of them was hoping there was one place I could just see all of them.

    If there is one, one of our members will know!  You can also usually sign up at an author's website to be notified about new releases.

    Have you tried fictfict.com?

    For example @

    you can sign up to receive an email when the next title in JD Robb's "In Death" series is released.

    That's an awesome question. I personally would love a web site where I could input all my favorite authors, and it would send me notifications when they have a new book out!

    OMG! This is awesome - thanks so much for sharing!

    For years, I have "attempted" to keep track of authors/series/release dates in an Excel spreadsheet...and well, I won't bother to tell you how well that has worked out for me  :-[...

    Again, thanks, readingril!!!
