I just found something cool I want to share with you.
Lukas Mathis has developed a tool that you can keep track of new releases by authors you like. It’s called BookFeed.io, and what it does is:
Bookfeed.io is a simple tool that allows you to specify a list of authors, and generates an RSS feed with each author’s most recently released book. I made this because I don’t want a recommendation algorithm to tell me what to read, I just want to know when my favorite authors release new books.
One reason I like this is that it is so very simple. Yes, I can subscribe to various mailing lists and get this same info from publishers, but then I’d also get other emails which I don’t want (this is why I no longer subscribe to said emails).
BTW, I think Amazon has something similar; I have sometimes gotten emails about new releases from certain authors.
