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 an artificial intelligence platform for the publishing and film industry that connects original content to new markets.
We analyze the text of books to know their full market potential. Our innovation won a 2016 award from the National Science Foundation.

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)?

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

Booxby uses A.I. to see patterns that exist in written text, but can't be seen by the human eye. We're able to classify and organize enormous data sets to facilitate and individualize the transmission of wisdom and knowledge through the written word.

Our ultimate impact will be to expand a reader’s scope of what’s available, relevant and resonant with them—helping to build a more literate, engaged and open society, and perpetuate a global love of reading.

So what's all this talk about artificial intelligence and the publishing industry? We wrote a piece for the Huffington Post to inform you about the age of machine learning. It's here. It's exciting. And it's going to dramatically improve the way we brings books into the world.

For publishers, agents and authors!

Wondering if you are acquiring the right books? Need help understanding the full market potential for your books?

The Booxby platform offers a friendly, web-based tool that analyzes the text of your manuscript and provides analytics to understand 1) commercial and literary viability 2) comparable titles—beyond sales data 3) ELTs™ (Experiential Language Tags) that help you understand how the book will make readers feel. After all, we understand a book is an experience

We will release the Booxby Bridge™ tool in 2018, so please sign up and become a free Charter Member to test the beta.


For readers!

In the future, we will release our book discovery service 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.
