I thought it would be nice for people who have a book in them to have a place where they could come and get advice from others, kind of like a virtual writer's group. I know there are many out there, but I know a lot of Religious writer's in particular are told there stuff won't sell - this is absolutely not true. Religious writing is on the upsurge and it's a great place to be. I also think it would be cool for people from all genres to have somewhere reasonable safe to hear about their options, learn hos to network and find a place for civil debate about various kinds of publishing, the pros and cons - and to find out about scams, etc. I've been selling books for 20 years, so I can tell you from that angle, also there are a lot of other writer's out there who have been through the mill and can give you their feed back.
