Screwpulp Connects Self-Published Authors With Readers

screwpulpLooking for a way to find new readers for your self-published book? Check out Screwpulp, a new platform designed to help new writers find readers.

Any author can publish a book on Screwpulp. At first the book is available for free. The idea is that readers are more likely to take a risk and read a new author when the book is free. Readers can read the titles on their Kindle. The site encourages readers to review and share the books with their social networks.

Once a book has a number of reads and reviews, then the price will go up. “As a book gains it popularity and ratings it is reflected by the price moving up incrementally,” explains the site. Authors control the rights to their works and collect 75 percent of the profit. Authors are required to keep their book on Screwpulp for at least 90 days. (Via Mashable).
