Online resource FiledBy has expanded its online author directory, adding and linking together sites for coauthors, illustrators, artists, photographers and others who contributed to the publication of a book.

The site included 1.8 million author sites in its directory before the latest expansion, which adds more than 1 million contributors whose efforts led to a published work. Each contributor now has a free site that he or she can claim and enhance with photographs, a biography, links and multimedia (video, podcast or PDF). All sites are linked to relevant contributors on FiledBy and include pages for each of their books.
