Small press pop quiz - Uncovered Books

19 January 2014 / Leave a Comment

What makes Uncovered Books different to other publishers?
We are focused on using technology to level the playing field for authors. Specifically, we have published an iPad app that attempts to connect readers with our books. Our app does this through a unique discovery experience that presents our books in a way that focuses on the work itself and not superfluous marketing noise. In the current landscape it feels like authors with the most connections or the best self-marketing skills are the ones who end up being read the most. We'd like our platform to bring the focus to the written word and help make publishing become a bit more of a meritocracy. 

What kind of manuscripts are you looking for?
We are open to most types of manuscripts with a preference for novel-length fiction. 

If someone was to read two books on your list, what should they be?
Rather than say what my favorites are, I'd encourage readers to check out our app. Our app's recommendation algorithm will help them discover the book in our catalog that best matches up with what they like to read.

What are you excited about for 2014?
We have a very long list of features and tweaks for our app that we can't wait to implement. While we are proud of our current version, it's only a small picture of our ultimate vision. We hope 2014 is the year we make more of that vision a reality and the year that many more readers begin to look to Uncovered Books when faced with the daunting task of choosing their next book.
