Digital Discovery


E-books have made it quick and easy for aspiring authors to get their stories out and their voices heard. But with the good comes the bad: your story could easily get lost among the thousands of e-books available online.

How do you get noticed? By getting your online followers, potential readers, and book buyers to share, tweet and repost content about your book on their social media profiles.

How? By giving them an incentive: a free preview of your book.

Start building awareness and interest for your e-book through the Xlibris Digital Discovery Service. With the Digital Discovery Service, you get:

  • 25 promotional BookStub™ cards to give away
  • A one-year subscription to BookGrabbr:
    • 25 “grabbs” of the full book to drive early shares
    • Unlimited book preview “grabbs”
    • Quarterly reports that include likes, shares, grabbs, impressions, etc.
  • A buy button with a link to purchase your book

What are BookStub™ cards and BookGrabbr?

  • BookStub™ cards – These are plastic cards that display your full-colour book cover on the front and a promo code on the back that readers can use to access your book digitally.

  • BookGrabbr – This web-based tool enables you to give away a free preview or a free “grabb” of the entire book to potential readers when they share your book on their social media profiles. You also get access to analytics on your reader demographics.

The model is simple: you share your Bookgrabbr link to your social media, and your Facebook friends, Twitter followers and LinkedIn connections receive a sample of your book in return for sharing it with their friends, who can then share it with their friends, and on and on.
