The process is simple. Just as it’s done in the publishing world, we ask authors to submit ten pages and a summary of their book. We then let you browse the submissions based on your preferences. You read a brief overview, and if it strikes your fancy, you click through to read a more in depth description. If you’re still interested, you read an excerpt. And if that leaves you wanting more, you support it (which is essentially like preordering the book)! You don’t get charged unless the book is published, so there’s no risk. And for every book we sell, we’re donating a book to a child in need….
You get bragging rights for discovering a published book. You get to read what you want. You support aspiring authors. And you support aspiring readers. We’d say it’s pretty much a win-win all around. Our goal is to create a sort of online global book club, marked by respect, raw creativity, and conscious consumerism. Join our revolution today!
Trouble is, the great majority of books have 0% funding, so Kickstarter it isn’t. But it’s a good idea at least, and hopefully it gains traction.
