Bringing the power of publishingto the people!

Traditionally, it has been up to publishing companies to read submissions from authors and guess market conditions when choosing which books to publish.

Social Publishing aims to merge traditional publishing methods with online social interaction by allowing:

Writers

Readers

How it Works
1. Sign Up

Sign up to Social Publishing to create your free account.

Within your account you can manage your manuscripts and your profile.

2. Submit Manuscripts

Post the first three chapters of your completed manuscript, adding tags, banners, genres and ratings to guide your audience.

The public will then read and hopefully vote for your story to be published.

You are free to submit multiple manuscripts.

3. Get Published!

If your manuscript meets a voting threshold, it will be selected for publication. At that point we will contact you and together we will take your story to the next step.

1. Sign Up

Sign up to Social Publishing to create your free account, and start reading through hundreds of manuscripts.

Within your account you can update your profile, view your vote limit and your recent activity.

2. Browse & Read

Browse through the genres, finding your favourites among the many manuscripts. There is something for everyone; anything from horror to romance and everything in-between.

Connect with writers by leaving comments and your enjoyment rating.

3. Vote

Each month you will be given a limited number of votes. These votes give you a voice in deciding which manuscripts are published.

When a manuscript reaches a threshold, the writer will be contacted and awarded a publishing contract. We will notify you when the books you vote for are available for purchase.

FAQs

The site is currently in Beta testing which means that we only allow users to sign up and submit manuscripts at the moment.

Once the site has been sufficiently populated with manuscripts we will open the site for browsing and voting.

Watch this space!

The activity feed in your account will provide you with a daily update to see which of your manuscripts have received votes. Due to the confidential nature of the voting system you will not see exact numbers. If your manuscript reaches our publication threshold, we will get in touch with details of your contract.

Voting is currently disabled while the site is in beta testing, however once it is live, this is how it will work:

Each month you will be given 5 votes, these votes give you a voice in deciding which manuscripts are published. Your allocation of votes will be refreshed on the first day of every month at midnight (BST).

When you see a story that you like and want to see published, you can vote for it by clicking on the "vote" button at the bottom of the manuscript. Once you have voted, this cannot be undone.

When a manuscript reaches a threshold, the writer will be contacted and awarded a publishing contract and voting on that manuscript will end. We will notify you when the books you vote for are available for purchase

We don't allow user-created artwork to avoid complications with regards to copyrighted materials as well as ensuring the focus remains on the manuscripts and not their associated art.

We have generated three banners per main genre, please select the closest one to the theme of your story.

Once you have logged into your account, you will be able to create your first manuscript by clicking the "write" option in the menu and then clicking the "new manuscript" link. This will take you to our inline editor where you can see exactly how your story will look to other users.

If you want to come back to your story later then please click "save draft", this will save the draft to be edited later.
