At Book Cave we’re always looking for ways to connect readers with great free and discounted ebooks, and we have a few very exciting developments to share with you.
We’ve just released a promotion calendar that authors can use to check promotion availability for their book’s specific genre, rating, and price. This makes scheduling your promotion easier than ever.
We recently added series promotions. Authors can promote an entire series at once, and readers can easily see and buy all the books in a series, as well as great some great deals on subsequent books in the series!
Digital Book Lover Products
We are creating a digital collection of products for book lovers, including bookmarks, wall art, reading charts, reading journal, and more! These products will all be available on our upcoming digital storefront.
We are adding editorial and reader reviews. As an author, you will be able to request an editorial review from My Book Ratings that will be posted to the reader blog and that you can quote anywhere to promote your book. You will also be able to request reader reviews, and we will guarantee at least 10 reviews will be posted on retailers.
On the flip side, as a reader, you’ll be able to sign up to become a reviewer; as a reviewer, you’ll be able to receive free copies of books and be entered into some great giveaways. Reader reviews will be managed through the new dashboard interface we are working on. Stay tuned for updates!
We are working on modifying the content preferences. When signing up for Book Cave or Book Cave Direct deals, you currently must choose an overall rating that best matches the content rating you want. So if you want Moderate+ violence and only Mild swearing or intimacy, you still have to sign up for the overall rating of Moderate+ (see more about how our content ratings work here). We plan to modify this system to allow you to sign up for each level individually and only receive books that match your exact preferences within each of the ratings. For example, if you were to sign up for books with Moderate+ violence but only Mild swearing or intimacy, you’d only receive Moderate+ books where the swearing or intimacy levels are no higher than Mild. We believe this gives you more choices which will mean more great books to read and love.
In addition to the free and discounted ebooks on our site, we often have fun contests that subscribers can enter, and they range from reader T-shirt giveaways, reader mugs, and chances to win ereaders. We currently have a monthly reader giveaway, as well as a giveaway to win a $500 book shopping spree!
My Book Ratings
My Book Ratings is gaining more and more books. This site is a database of books with community-submitted content ratings and official MBR ratings. Readers can search this site to discover whether a book has the content levels they want to read, and they can submit ratings for books they’ve read. We are in the process of posting books to My Book Ratings; we have 35,830+ books posted, and are constantly adding more!
Our goal with these changes is to bring you more high-quality, free and discounted ebooks. And you can be sure that we’ll keep you up-to-date on the changes we make.
Thank you for your support of content-rated books. We couldn’t do this without your support, and we hope you’ll share our site with all your book-loving friends.
