The Glitterbug Bookcase app is the perfect showcase for your authors’ work!
Especially designed for smaller devices, our mobile friendly apps give readers an elegant, delightful experience while ‘on the go’.
Books are shown in a ‘Bookcase’ fashion with different shelves organised by genre, most popular, newest, alphabetical and other filters.
Each author can have their own page showing their image, details, list of books and links to buy their book.
Readers can choose favourite books and authors and subscribe to author broadcasts
As a publisher you can add your authors to the shared app or get your very own branded, customised version of the app!
Why Choose Glitterbug Bookcase?
Authors' work can be found on the App Store and Google Play
Every channel matters in marketing and promotions. The more ways for a potential reader to see your authors’ work, the better! With this in mind, why not add your valued authors to this new and exciting channel.
Especially designed for mobile Shoppers
80% of shoppers used a mobile phone inside of a physical store to either look up product reviews, compare prices or find alternative store locations.
With our ‘Chat Message’ style format, readers can peruse the sample chapter of a book easily on even a very small device! What can be easier than chat messages?
As well as this our design and functionality has been created with mobile ‘on the go’ readers in mind. Features like ‘auto save’ that automatically bookmarks your place down to the sentence helps a lot!
Elegant, professionally designed Themes
Here at Glitterbug we combine art with technology and there is no better place to see this than in our premium themes. Each of these themes have been developed especially for Glitterbug using acrylic paints, beautiful photography and finished off with tools like Photoshop.
No Wifi? No Worries!
Hand in Hand is a fully native mobile app. This means that each screen loads instantly (no annoying delays!) and the app is available offline (including the map feature!)
Glitterbug Bookcase and MyAuthors provides excellent scope to promote your hardworking and dedicated authors. Each author receives their own ‘page/screen’ as well as the opportunity to gather a following on the app. In addition to this opportunities such as ‘Featured Authors’ give readers a little insight into the makers of their favourite works and provide authors with a voice.
