100 Million Books
Are you an author? Do you want people to discover your book? Thousands of curious readers are discovering books on 100 Million Books all around the world, every day.
Right now, we're allowing a small number of authors to feature their own book snippets on our app. Your book snippet will get thousands of impressions to a global audience. It's like having prime shelf-space in a worldwide bookstore for a tiny fraction of the cost.
In order to stay true to our mission, we have some criteria:
- the book must promote topical diversity and result in reasonable overall balance for the whole 100 Million Books collection (i.e., we'll never accept 100 romance features if that would cause the romance genre to balloon to 50% of our total collection);
- the author cannot have any other book snippets in circulation on 100 Million Books while the feature is running (any other snippets are deactivated while the feature runs—this prevents author overrepresentation);
- featured snippets are displayed just as randomly as all other snippets (no 'priority');
- featured snippets are limited to 10% of 100 Million Books' total collection.
These criteria allow us to keep everyone happy:
- readers get a glimpse of tomorrow's classics
- authors get a low-cost path to global exposure for their latest works
- 100 Million Books makes a little bit of money
