Book View Cafe

Publisher info

BOOK VIEW CAFE came together in 2008 around a group of authors with a simple aim: to use the Internet to bring their work directly to their readers. It was already clear that a revolution was coming to the publishing industry and these authors wanted to help shape its course.

Drawing on a collective century’s worth of experience in the publishing industry, the authors created an online space where readers can browse and discover new authors and titles alongside current favorites. Aware that the Internet demands variety, the site features fresh fiction every day on the front page, a feat made possible by the extensive list of material available to over over thirty professional authors, including bestsellers and award winners such as Ursula K. Le Guin, Vonda N. McIntyre, Laura Anne Gilman, Sarah Smith, Sarah Zettel and Steven Harper.

Since its launch, Book View Café has experienced a steady growth in readers and in author-members. The Cafe now receives over 700,000 hits every month. The author blog has also seen increasing popularity since its launch, drawing a further eight to nine thousand hits per month. You can visit the website at www.bookviewcafe.com.
