One Thousand Words Plus is an online preview catalogue of ebooks and print books.
It allows indie authors and writers, as well as publishers, to:
It allows potential book and ebook purchasers to:
With automated preview systems such as those on Google Books, Amazon and Smashwords, you (the author or publisher) cannot specify which passages should be displayed and which should be kept hidden from a potential buyer, other than placing a percentage limit on the book. This works differently on different retail platforms and is no criticism of their preview processes. We understand that they are automated out of necessity, hence the decision to develop onethousandwordsplus.com.
With onethousandwordsplus.com, you (the author or publisher) will be able to choose those parts of each book that you would prefer the potential buyer to see, and reveal those as part of a preview, with direct links to the online retailers where those books may be purchased.
And the bonus is that the text you choose to list here is searchable by Google and all other search engines - helping your chances of getting your book in front of people who may be more interested in what you have to say. Finding your target audience is hard. With One Thousand Words Plus is just got a little easier!
Any self-published or indie author, any traditionally published author, and any publishing house on behalf of an author, may list a book on onethousandwordsplus.com.
So long as you have the right to market that particular book in this manner, then you may list it on onethousandwordsplus.com.
You choose which words you would like to list – perhaps up to 10,000 words, depending on the size of your book. These do not have to be consecutive words – you may choose eight hundred words from chapter one, a further five hundred from chapter three, and perhaps another twelve hundred from deeper in the book. You should have headings above each excerpt (a maximum of four) to indicate that the passages are from different chapters. You can combine whole chapters or excerpts from several chapters in one section, then the same again for the next section.
You list the purchase URLs in order of where you would most like to direct your potential buyers. Some might wish to sell their Smashwords version in preference to their Amazon version. Others might prefer to sell the Kobo version in preference to their Barnes and Noble version. The choice is yours!
You also get to list other URLs such as your blog, website etc for the potential buyer to access more information about you, your business and your other books.
