Welcome to CompletelyNovel; the book publishing innovation centre. The centre is home to a friendly community of book futurists, provides professional book production facilities and a wide variety of reading, publishing and discovery experiences. Our goal and passion is to create the best possible way to get good books to their target audience. The centre has two wings, the hub and the business wing.
The hub is the place for readers and writers. It consists of the readers cafe, the publishing centre, the news room and ‘my home’.
- The readers’ cafe is the place to discover great books, meet exciting people, win fantastic prizes and join interesting conversations. There are tens of thousands of books which can be read online and plenty of helpful and knowledgeable people to discuss and share experiences with. You will also have the chance to meet authors and by reviewing, reading and buying books have your say over which books should be the next best sellers.
- The publishing hub is an advanced book production and distribution facility. It consists of professional tools to publish, distribute and sell your books in paperback, eBook and streamed formats and interactive guides to provide helpful suggestions and tips along your journey. The publishing centre exists symbiotically with the readers cafe and social media services such as twitter and facebook as well as traditional book shops. You will also find interesting tips, questions and debates from professionals and the community about how best to publish your book.
- The news room brings together the latest news from the world of books as well as our blog and guest articles. Expect to find lots of hints, tips and tricks and the latest news from the world of books. If you’ve got an announcement to make this is also the place to do it.
- ‘My Home’ is a place to organise your book life consisting of your own personalised news feed, library and publishing portal. The news feed shows the latest activity from your friends, discussions, articles and books. The library is your personal book organiser; save the page you’re on, interesting sections, comments and reviews. Your publishing portal provides easy management of the books you’ve published, your sales and your marketing campaigns. ‘My Home’ also contains guides to help you get the most from books and profile and respect management tools.
