Did You Know?

304,912 books were published in the US in 2013 alone. That's more than 800 titles per day! To put that figure into perspective, the average public library contains 13,987 books.
Is it any wonder that the majority of authors get lost in the herd and wind up making little or no profit on their self-publishing efforts?

At GoodBooks Online we have brought together a multi-media approach to book promotion that includes much more than a blurb, a cover and a title. Using a combination of proven online technologies, we give our members the kind of access to authors that has never before been brought together under one roof. Aside from providing the usual printed information about authors and their books, GBO produces weekly video interviews that let authors tell their story in their own words on our YouTube series. Then we take it one step further by providing interactive access to authors every week on our live radio show. If you really want to get to know the inner workings of an author's mind, as well as what went into writing their latest book, this Is It!
