Discover Sci-Fi Site

A group of 10 indie authors (some of whom have traditional publishing deals as well) have started a new website to promote their work and connect with readers: Discover Sci-Fi.

They are: Jay Allan, Evan Currie, Joshua Dalzelle, Michael Grumley, Autumn Kalquist, Matthew Mather, Samuel Peralta, Nicholas Sansbury Smith, Darren Wearmouth, and Nick Webb.

They're currently running a contest to win quite a few books.  The grand prize is 40 signed trade paperbacks, followed by 2500 prize packs containing 10 ebooks each.  The contest is open internationally though, according to their rules, people from the following countries are ineligible: Taiwan, South Korea, Portugal, Italy, Austria, China, Russia, Hong Kong, Greece, France, Japan, Spain, and Czech Republic.

You get a free ebook for entering the contest and/or signing up for their newsletter.

There are tabs at the top right of the screen to navigate the site.  Currently there's only the giveaway and a few blog posts.  I corresponded with Matthew Mather, one of the founders, who told me what readers can expect from the site:

Each week we will be featuring a new book release and/or free/deep discount on a book from one of our ten “partner” authors, plus we will be curating a list of deals from other authors that we like, have read, can recommend etc…

The group intends to add more authors to their line-up over time as well as a forum for discussion, but they want the site properly established before branching out.
