IMDB for Authors?

Is the Internet Movie Database for authors? Now in private beta, it’s an online directory for published authors who want to maintain a web presence.

The advantages for authors (I’m quoting from the site):

  • Built around you the author, rather than products
  • Provides greater visibility for you than stand-alone author sites
  • Open to all authors
  • Free access to over $2,500 worth of author-centric web technology
  • Saves time and money with pre-assembled pages

If you’re a published author from the U.S. or Canada, you’ve probably already got a page. You can claim (and subsequently edit) your page here.
