Ever heard of them? Me neither! Until a few weeks ago that is. It’s a pretty interesting publishing company created by William Yatscoff. Based in Canada, they opened just last year. Bookkus Publishing use traditional publishing aspects – editors, artists, ebooks, printing, marketing – and new avenues not yet tried. For example, the biggest draw is that a community of readers gets to review the submitted books and only after a certain review quota (and enough stars) has been met will BP start the process of publishing the manuscript.
And I’m one of the Book Reviewers!
Granted… I’ve only just joined a few weeks ago and only reviewed one book thus far, but I’ve committed myself to three books per month and will do just that. (Maybe more if I can manage.)
It seems like a really good opportunity for both the reader and the author. As a reader, you get some control as to what ‘makes it’ and, as an author, you get some honest feedback about your book – praise or constructive criticism.
Alas, I must get back to the grind. Have a lovely weekend!
