The right book

at the right time

 


We love the Bixby Bridge (above) in Big Sur, California, which Jack Kerouac and many of the Beat writers crosseD. We wager it was the connector of great minds that made a wonderful contribution to American literature—by shaking things up a bit. We love that bridge for all these reasons, and we hope you come to love ours at Booxby.
 

What is Booxby? (books-bee)

Booxby is a software company using proprietary machine learning to solve the publishing industry's biggest problem: book discovery. Our innovation won a 2016 National Science Foundation award.

 

Problem:
How do authors and publishers find the right market for their books without drowning inside an ocean of content?
How do readers find the right book in this ocean of 1.5 million books published annually (and rising)?

Solution:
We built a bridge called Booxby to connect authors to readers and solve 'book discovery' from beginning to end. We bring modern analytics to book acquisition, positioning and marketing and close the loop by connecting readers to books just right for them.

Coming Soon!
We will release our book discovery service in 2017, first in an iPhone app—to enhance your reading experience, so please sign up and become a Charter Member to get free access to the beta, our first film clips, and test Booxby to find a book that's just right for you! With your input, we can build a lasting bridge between authors and readers.
