What other authors have to say...

I love how simple it is to keep track of clicks on custom links and to create Universal Book Links, which simplify the process for a reader to choose a retailer to purchase from.

Universal book links are a MUST for any author... the universal links knows exactly where the closest store in the territory of the reader and automatically redirects them... Swift, clean and efficient.

The universal book link is worth money on its own, and it's free! You can link to your Amazon book to anyone, and it will take them directly to their country's Amazon...

Readers can find the major retailers where your book is available at a glance.

Big buttons make it easy for readers to get where they want to go.

Example Universal Book Link Page

1-Click to Preferred Store

Most readers have a "preferred store" set on StoryOrigin, so they bypass the StoryOrigin page and are redirected to their preferred retailer.

If the reader's preferred retailer is not available, they will see the retailers where the book is available.

Why do authors recommend StoryOrigin?

Is there a 5 star rating system on this? Because StoryOrigin is at least 6 stars. At least! I've used the other platforms... and none of them approach the flexibility and power of StoryOrigin
