At My 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 are continually adding to the website to make it easier to navigate. This includes adding more author features, making blogs easier to share, and making sure our free and discounted ebooks are simple to access.
We’ll continue writing fun posts that you can share with friends, but we’re also in the process of adding several informational posts and tutorials about our ratings, ereaders, and downloading ebooks.
The Preferences for Content Ratings
Currently, you 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.
Soon we’ll be adding author profile pages to My Book Cave, so if you find an author you enjoy, you’ll be able to see what else they’ve written, see all the places their books are available, sign up to learn when a book goes on sale, and hear about their new releases. You can also post comments on their books and see their latest updates.
We've recently added a new feature for authors: subscriber magnets. Authors can give away free copies of one of their ebooks to readers who sign up for the author's newsletter. The free ebook becomes a magnet for subscribers. Reader more about subscriber magnets in our blog post here.
We've also put in an easy way to create and join group promotions with other authors directly on the site. Authors can create a promotion that others can join, or they can join someone else's promotion, using their subscriber magnet book.
Subscriber magnents currently can only be found by readers through the author sharing a directly link. But we are working on creating a page where readers can browse the available subscriber magnets directly on the site. That way, readers can find even more high-quality, free ebooks!
My Book Ratings
Our sister site, 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 over about 1,400 books posted (as of June 9, 2016), and are working on another thousand!
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.
