Every author dreams that one day their books will go viral. It is the ultimate accolade of success. Having a book go viral tops getting published or even making the ever growing number of best seller lists. It is the elusive dream for the majority of authors, yet with the right foundation and approach to marketing the dream is more achievable than it ever has been.

It simply isn’t enough to have a great book if your potential readers have never heard of it.
At BookViral we focus our energy on discovering new authors and those you may not have yet heard off, because this is where we excel and we are passionate about the books that shape the minds of readers across the world.

There seems to be a weight of opinion that by the end of this decade self-published eBooks will account for 50 percent of the eBook market. If you were given to gambling, you might like the odds, but is our love affair with eBooks and self-publishing really here to stay? Trends change and if history has taught us anything, it’s that nothing is written in stone. Major players such as Amazon have a vested interest in convincing us that eBooks are the future, but then again it was a popular belief that home video would kill the cinema...................
