BookLife -- Publishers Weekly's new website dedicated to self-publishing -- launched new features this month enabling authors to post to their pages excerpts from books and news items about their career and work.

Additionally, BookLife authors can now post reviews on their book pages. And, with the roll out of these new features, BookLife screens for creating and editing projects have been simplified to make posting information easier.

"We're hopeful these new features will make BookLife book pages even more useful for indie authors," said BookLife President Carl Pritzcat. "Our goal is to give indie authors as many tools as possible to help them succeed with their books."

In the coming weeks, the news items and reviews posted by BookLife authors on their pages will be featured on the site's home page. All of these new features are part of BookLife's free membership, which allows indie authors to submit books for review to PW for free.
