Episode 73: Books2Read for Readers, with Kevin Tumlinson

Host Patricia McLinn talks with Kevin Tumlinson, director of marketing for the ebook creation and distribution service Draft2Digital, supporting both indie and traditionally published authors. Books2Read, D2D’s author services resource, is a fast-growing tool for the industry, with services such as Universal Book Links offering authors increased discoverability with readers, and offering readers a simple, one-click method of finding new authors and new books online. 

In his words: “Books2Read has always been built around the idea that eventually we want readers to be able to discover there new favorite author on that site. … Discover new books, new authors that they love and follow, and then interact with them and support them by sharing things.” [21:45]
