NoveList - Find Similar Authors

In NoveList, it's easy to find authors who write like your favorite, using similar subjects, themes, and appeal factors.

Find Author Recommendations at the Detail Page

Start by searching for the author from the Basic Search box.  Select Author from the drop-down and then enter the author name and click Search.

You can find Read-alikes for any author from the Result List and within an Author Detail page. Read-alike links will appear beneath each record at your Result List. To view an author’s Detail page, you can select an author link from your Result List.

Author information is provided at the top of each Author Detail page. For many of the most popular authors, you will find a description of their works, along with the appeal factors typical of their writing.

In the “Read-alikes” section on the right side of the Detail page, you’ll find up to nine author recommendations.

With your mouse, you can hover over the magnifying glass icon to view information about the author recommendation and why it is recommended.  For more information on the recommended author, click on their name to access their Author Detail page.

You can print all of the author recommendations by clicking the View All link at the top of the “Read-alikes” section.

Search for More

The “Search for More” feature at the bottom of the Detail page allows you to find similar authors based on the author’s genre, subject, location, and appeal factors that are of interest to you.
