How does bookhitch.com work?

Publishers and authors list their books on bookhitch including information about the book: title, ISBN (if you have one), five key search words, a description, and a link to where to purchase the book. This is all for free. Visitors come onto the site and search by title, author, ISBN, and genre to find books in the areas they are interested in. They click on the link that brings them into contact with the Publisher/Author for more information and purchase, eliminating the need for a middleman.

What is your mark-up? How do customers get books?

bookhitch.com acts as a portal that connects publishers, authors, and readers. Therefore, we do not mark up, or receive any profits from the sale of your book. You provide a link or contact information directing readers to where they can purchase your book. Most of our registered users direct readers to their home website, a publisher's website or to wherever their book is available that takes the least amount of sales. bookhitch is an added bonus to your marketing plan, offering readers the chance to find books that they can only normally find by visiting numerous bookstores, while giving the profits to the people that count.

How much does a book registration cost?

There is no cost for a text only registration. We do offer a premium service, which includes a full color image of the front cover of the book, along with double the amount of space in the description, an author biography, and a book review. The premium service also provides a separate URL for your book, which is picked up by major search engines (this may take a few weeks) for only $19.95 per year.

Is my personal profile information shared with anyone?

No, your personal information is not sold or shared with anyone. bookhitch.com from time to time will send you emails announcing new services or other book selling opportunities through the bookhitch.com sponsorships. We also have an informative
newsletter that includes valuable information about the industry as well as tips on how to market your book(s).

Is it possible to use my phone and email to transact directly with buyers?

Yes, we understand that some authors do not have specific websites set up for the sale of their books. Therefore, you can provide any means of contact for readers to buy your book.

Does my book have to have an ISBN to be listed?

No, bookhitch.com does not require an ISBN number to be listed on the site. We feel this will allow worldwide accessibility to very interesting, lesser-known works.
