KPO Creative LLC and Kristy Kurjan are happy to be a part of HometownReads.com, a website featuring local authors and their towns. 

Here is a short explanation of what Hometown Reads represents: 

Welcome to Hometown Reads! We’re a community dedicated to serving local authors across the country, by helping them connect with readers in their hometown through what we call the Read Local movement. Our site is the first of its kind to organize authors by local community, a design that is intended to facilitate both networking for authors and exposure/connection to more readers.

In 2017, we celebrated one full year as a company, and launched forty locations in that time, resulting in over 1,000 books represented on the site. This year we have ambitious development plans that will allow authors to submit multiple books, create a login for authors to edit their own books, and facilitate an Ambassador program.
