I came across this new resource for writers from a company called Vook. It looks like a fascinating tool for self-published authors, allowing authors to track book sales that are reported through most of the major players in the ebook and POD business–Amazon, Amazon KDP, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Nook Press, Kobo Writing Life, CreateSpace, Smashwords, Google, and Samsung.
The idea is that you can get more information and data more quickly so you can make more informed decisions about your writing, business and marketing plans. Right now they are allowing authors to track up to 10 books for free.
You can check it out at vook.com.
I talked to the Matt Cavnar, one of Vook’s co-founders, and they plan to offer new tools in the future that will allow traditionally published authors to access information about their books from publicly available sources. But for now, it’s strictly for authors who control their own retailer accounts.
If you try it out we’d love to know what you think by posting your thoughts in the comment section below.
