DashBook is a collaborative publishing house which gives back power to writers and readers.
After a first selection by our editorial board , we publish the books which readers love : writers use our platform to submit their works to the public. If 100 readers (minimum threshold decided by the author) pre-order the book, we publish it and ship it. Otherwise, the book is not published and readers don't pay anything. The pre-order process is also free for the author : he does not have to pay anything to submit his work to the public and be published.
Dashbook pays writers 5 to 10 times more than a traditional publisher by sharing publishing rights equally. When even confirmed writers have trouble getting 5% to 10% in authors' rights from their traditional publisher, we reward them up to 50% !
Thanks to you, new talented writers are discovered and published. You can reveal the next stars : did you know that J.K Rowling and E.L James were refused by dozens of publishers before publishing Harry Potter and 50 Shades of Grey ? You are the best ones to know what you like and what is worth publishing.
