The sales potential that lies in this type of exposure is staggering. There are several benefits to the Google Books Preview Program that all contribute to a vastly greater opportunity to sell:

  • Your book becomes more visible. The Google Books Preview Program lets readers all over the world discover your book and preview a portion of it.
  • Your book becomes more discoverable. Google scans and indexes the text of your entire book for its search engine. That means there are more words and phrases tied to your book that could lead curious readers straight to you.
  • Readers get a sneak peek. When prospective book buyers find your book on Google Books, they’re automatically given access to a limited preview of your book to further entice them to buy. 
  • Links make buying easy. A series of links within your Google Books listing lead readers straight to your book with major online book retailers.

Our Google Books Preview Program is an inexpensive and extremely effective way to get your book in front of a sizable audience of avid readers.  On the right is a preview of how it looks (click to open the image and zoom in for a better view).
