“Author Control is the next step in our vision to empower authors with the best digital publishing services and the right data,” said Matthew Cavnar, co-founder of Vook. “For the first time, authors can get the complete picture of their sales across the major retail channels in one dashboard, helping them take control of their publishing initiatives.”
Battle-tested over the last year with best selling authors and partners such as the New York Times, Fast Company, Forbes, Thought Catalog, and U.S. News & World Report, and tracking more than 4 million ebook downloads, Author Control now lets every author and publisher access free real-time and historical analytics that will help them monetize and expand their audience.
Miguel Morales of Forbes.com said, “Vook’s sales tracking dashboard helps demystify the ebook sales process. The insights we’ve gleaned from Vook continue to impact how we conceive, launch and market our ebooks. By giving the dashboard to all its authors, Vook is further democratizing the publishing cycle and giving authors more control over their work.”
Author organizations and publishing services companies such as Bowker, the Alliance of Independent Authors, Grub Street, Author Marketing Experts and the CUNY Publishing Certificate Program will be able to provide their members access to this superior data tracking solution in collaboration with Vook. Additionally the platform is being used by prominent members of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America and Romance Writers of America.
"One of Bowker's key objectives is to provide authors with quality services and products at prices that deliver high value,” said Beat Barblan, Director, Identifier Services, Bowker, a ProQuest Affiliate. “We expect our business partners to subscribe to the same standards and to share our value of putting the customer first. In Vook we have found an ideal partner. Our customers tell us Vook's service is fast, efficient, and excellent, and that its staff is among the most responsive and customer friendly anywhere."
