Our Goal is Satisfied Readers
Great books are published every day with different levels of language, violence, and intimacy, but too often readers find their enjoyment of a book halted because of unwanted scenes, or because a scene they expected wasn’t included. With Book Cave and Book Cave Direct, readers choose their level of comfort, so they waste less time with books that don’t match their preferences, and they find greater satisfaction. Satisfied readers means happy readers—and that’s also great for authors. Think of our content ratings like movie ratings, only a bit more detailed. Everybody wins!
Who We Are
Our team consists of traditional and indie authors, editors, and website developers. We love books! We’ve carefully designed our website to ensure that book information is complete and easily accessible, and our developers continue adding new features to the entire website. We maintain three separate but closely related sites under the Book Cave domain: Book Cave, Book Cave Direct, and My Book Ratings. All of these are owned by Book Cave, LLC. You can see some of our main employees here on Linked-in.
What We Do
We see a real need for book deals that allow readers an easy way to choose content ratings for each and every book they read. Because readers find authors and books though different methods, we use several to help you find great deals on great ebooks.
Through Book Cave, we offer well-written books that are sold on retailers and are a great value for readers. Authors and publishers tell us about upcoming deals, our editors vet the submitted books for quality, and then books are features on our site and go out to readers in emails.
Through Book Cave Direct, we’ve created a way for authors and publishers to directly offer their books from our site. They can upload review copies to distribute to reviewers, set up an ebook as a thank-you gift for current subscribers, or offer a free ebook or sample to anyone who joins their newsletter list.
On My Book Ratings, we maintain a content-rated database of any book we’ve ever featured on Book Cave or that have been submitted by readers, authors, or publishers. We have thousands of books already listed.
We love to match readers with great authors they'll enjoy for years to come. By using content ratings, we hope authors will have fewer reviews complaining that "this book had too much violence" or "I expected more heat, but this book is rated only G." Book Cave, Book Cave Direct, and My Book Ratings give readers the choice BEFORE they download the books. No more guessing!
We have been in business since June 2015, and are still experiencing growing pains. We have many upgrades in the works for the website, including public author profile pages, more choices for readers, and easier ways for authors and publishers to submit features. We feel this is an important service to offer readers and authors alike, and we want to do it right. Any suggestions you have, please send our way. Meanwhile, we hope you'll jump on for the ride!
