Book2Look: What is it? And how does it work for self-published Authors?
Format: Group Discussion
German publisher Ralph Möller devised the Book2Look widget, which offers samples from your book side-by-side with social links, to be a “viral marketing tool for books” in the German, English and Spanish-speaking worlds. Together with Karen Inglis, a children’s author who has been road testing the tool, and Beth Kallman Werner Founder and President of Author Connections, and US agent for Book2Look, he discusses its value for self-publishers. The panel also addresses the wider challenges of book discovery for indie authors.
