What if you could promote your books simply by telling stories? It seems like a natural fit – you’re a storyteller, after all. That was the concept that got Kathy Meis thinking and brought her to create Bublish. Now an ALLi Partner Member, Kathy explains how it works.
Behind every story you write for your books there are many more stories. These are the personal stories of your life as a writer – like the moment of inspiration for your first book, funny and frustrating hours spent with those early drafts, people you’ve met that have shaped your characters, late night rewrites, the whys and hows of your writing, your failures and triumphs.
These are the stories behind your stories. Readers love them, and Bublish can help you celebrate and share them across the social Web.
Bublish is the free social book discovery and commerce platform that is revolutionizing how writers share their stories and readers find books they’ll love. The platform enables you to promote your work through storytelling, which leads to emotional connection and a high level of reader engagement. This in turn provides context as readers swim through a sea of books in today’s content abundant world.
Notice that on a single screen, readers can enjoy an excerpt from your book, a synopsis, your bio and photo, the book’s cover art, links to your website and an “author insight.” It’s in the author insight that you get to share the story behind your story. Think of it like a director's cut for your book.
Book bubbles are also designed for today's visual Web. Your writing remains at the center of each book bubble, but it’s wrapped in a beautiful, visually pleasing design. When people are overwhelmed with choices visual cues help them sort through information quickly.
With book bubbles, authors can create original, highly engaging content in seconds and share it across multiple social channels where readers can enjoy it and share it with their networks.
Over time, this “network effect” helps authors start conversations with new readers and build their fan base.
