Booktrope broadens readership by connecting your book with an online constituency. We help you take advantage of the benefits of a free online version of your book.
Attract readers to your book.
Every Booktrope book is featured on its own web page, formatted for comfortable reading on a screen. At your option, we engage readers by allowing them to leave moderated annotations in a discussion on our website. Enhancements can include links to author background, other books, and web sites.
Sell printed copies of your book.
Our business model is based on research showing that free online versions of books actually increase sales of printed copies. The video by Neil Gaiman on our home page explains some of the reasons why this works. Here are some links with additional information:
Because the Booktrope site includes books from a variety of publishers, we attract a wider range of readers than most publishing sites. Our site is first and foremost a book reading site, so we generate more traffic than most single-publisher sites. The main benefit is increased readership and interest in your books supporting your marketing and promotion efforts for the title. Our goal is to attract and engage readers for your books. We also provide links on our site to buy printed versions, and we share affiliate fees with you.
Raise your book’s profile through targeted marketing on the web.
Booktrope isn’t just a place to attract readers for your book online. Under our optional Book Manager program, your books can be available for intensive promotion and marketing effort by a Booktrope specialist. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We also have a program for reprinting selected titles on a royalty basis. For more information about the Booktrope reprint program, please contact email@example.com.
Booktrope does not violate author-publisher agreements. We post books in copyright only with permission by the owner of electronic rights and copyright holder. We work with you to manage business arrangements properly.
