I’m so excited today to announce the launch of my brand spanking new fiction discovery website, Bookaxe, which makes it quicker and easier for readers to find books they’ll love.
It’s been born from some of my learnings and frustrations from my publishing experience, as well as my experience as a buyer on sites like Amazon and Waterstones. There are so many books to choose from but the ways in which retailers allow you to search can make it difficult to see beyond the names and titles that you already know, or those that are relentless marketed.
In a nutshell, Bookaxe changes the ways in which readers source fiction.
- We categorise books more accurately by their content, allowing readers to be more targeted in their searches
- We create a profile of every readers’ likes and dislikes, which we use to make more precise and reliable recommendations
- We’ve done away with one-to-five star reviews, instead only showing you the opinions of users with similar tastes
All this means that not only can you be sure of a novel’s content, you can be confident of its quality too. We want you to love every book you read.
The site is now live at www.bookaxe.com and we sincerely hope you find something you love. We’re keen for feedback too about what you’ve enjoyed and what you think could be better. You can contact me via Bookaxe, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also on Twitter and Facebook. Take a look and find your perfect read!
