About Us

Are you a bookworm? Do you subscribe to promo newsletters and eagerly download all the free books in your preferred genres? You do? GREAT! As an indie author who has used these promo sites to get my own books out in front of an eager audience, I can't thank you enough.

But what you may not realize is that these newsletters have specific requirements for promoted books. Most require a certain number of reviews, will only promote certain genres or exclude some outright, and very few will promote a short work. Nearly all require payment and can be quite expensive. Some of this is quite understandable. When you have thousands of authors submitting books on a daily basis, it isn't possible to read each one and decide if they're a good fit for a particular audience. It's so much easier to quickly glance at a review ranking, check the genre, and decide if the cover looks like something readers will click.

Which leaves thousands of really good books to collect virtual dust just because they're not easy to market or lack the reviews needed to promote with the popular sites. Or worse, the author simply doesn't have the extra income required to keep up with promotion. 

And that's why I've created Bookworms Discover. My goal is to help bookworms like yourself discover great reads from authors you might not have found otherwise, while getting authors who may not qualify for expensive promotions a chance to be seen by a larger audience.

Originally, we'd planned to offer free books each month, but after our first year, we weren't seeing as many titles as we'd have liked, so we decided to change formats. Instead, we'll still make one post per month, but in it, we'll tell you about some great indie books our contributors have discovered, as well as a list of books we've recently rated 4 or more stars. Plus, we'll still have a bi-annual promotion with free and discounted books. 

If this sounds like something you'd like, you can receive email notifications by subscribing to our news feed. To do this, simply click the subscribe button at the top of the page. If you'd prefer not to get email, you can also follow Bookworms Discover on Twitter or Facebook.

And if you've read some great indie books, we want to hear about them! Leave a comment below. We're always on the lookout for new books to feature.

Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to providing you with great new reading recommendations!
