Dynamic Content

Your visitors will love our dynamically updated news feed that keeps your site continutally fresh with new content and links to top quality free books, and we provide you with nicely formatted newsfeeds for all the major book genres:

  • Romance
  • Crime/Mystery
  • SciFi/Fantasy
  • Horror
  • Self Help

Likes and Shares

You will definitely see an increase in social engagement because our content is extremely popular and it receives a lot of organic ‘likes’ and ‘shares’. Your visitors will love this content too and will naturally want to share it. Just add social buttons to the bottom of your site (if you have not already done so) and when people do engage, it will be your site that gets shared.

Clickbank Commissions

You will earn commissions paid directly to you via ClickBank every time a visitor purchases the book submission offer from your site. And in the future, as the distribution network expands, we will be able to charge more for the service and will increase commissions at the same time.

Multiple Online Stores

Our universal buttons connect readers to the online store of their preference. We support all the online stores you have heard of, and some you may not know. The full list would be very long, but it includes all of the following bookstores:

  • Amazon Kindle
  • Apple iBooks
  • Audible
  • Barnes & Noble Nook
  • Rakuten Kobo
  • Thalia
  • Google Play
  • Angus & Robertson
  • Mondadori
  • Scribd
  • Smashwords

And our buttons use the latest geo-targetting technology to ensure your visitors always get directed to the correct online store for their own country.
