Like so many people, we love reading and talking about books -- not just the characters and stories but all that goes into making them into a reality. In our minds eye, we see Ernest Hemingway or Virginia Woolf dutifully pecking away at a manual typewriter somewhere until they emergee triumphantly with a pristine manuscript that is immediately published, purchased, and lauded by millions.
The reality is often quite different and the establishment of eBooks, mobile phones, e-readers, social networks, and ubiquitous Internet access affords new opportunities while raising the bar on reader expectations.
We saw this and recognized that every book has become an increasingly complex little enterprise, so we built LitHive to empower writers and publishing teams to simply and efficiently assemble, manage, market, and sell their books and other digital content while keeping critical technical and business details under control.
We do this by helping readers to discover your books and to connect with others who want to discuss them. We also help you to discover new readers, gain insights about their interests and needs, and give you the means to directly engage them in an ongoing conversation both today and in the future.
