How Bookhitch Works Diagram

Bookhitch is a book portal designed to connect authors, publishers, and readers. The site was launched in May 2006 after many years of research and design. The idea of bookhitch was developed to fit the growing needs of authors and publishers within the industry, offering readers one site where they can find all books.

The bookhitch distribution model allows publishers and authors to connect directly with readers, so that readers can buy books from the publisher or author, or the retailer which takes the least amount of sales (doesn’t ask for a 55% discount). If publishers and authors partake in direct sales, then they have the 55% discount they can pass onto readers, and still get more from the sale of each book. This also allows readers to develop a better relationship with their favorite author, or publisher.
