Authors can now harness the power of Google quickly and easily with the new preview submission option from Outskirts Press.

Outskirts Press, long a champion of self-publishing authors on the Kindle and Nook ebook marketplaces, is now helping self-publishing authors take advantage of Google Play’s increasingly popular Google Books bookstore. The self-publishing service provider recently launched its Google Books Preview Program, providing yet another popular avenue through which its authors can promote and sell.

By some estimates, of July 2013 Google Play recorded more than 50 billion downloads. The Google Books Preview Program option from Outskirts Press helps authors get their books submitted to Google Books – complete with a book cover, an enticing book sample for readers to browse and convenient links for buyers to purchase a copy through the major online retailers. Submission to Google Books makes books instantly more discoverable via the Google search engine.

Google Play’s online store offers consumers an unbeatable search engine that reliably leads shoppers straight to their product of choice in the Google Books bookstore, even when a word is misspelled. That means self-publishing authors have a terrific opportunity to get their books in front of Google Books consumers in a huge marketplace that’s incredibly efficient at targeting the right shoppers.

With the Google Books Preview Program from Outskirts Press, authors can quickly get set up with an author platform, as well as provide a sample of their books to entice some of the millions of readers browsing for books on Google. There are several benefits to the Google Books Preview Program that all contribute to a vastly greater opportunity to promote and sell:

  • Instant visibility. The Google Books Preview Program allows readers all over the world to discover a book and preview a portion of it.
  • Easy discoverability. Google scans and indexes the text of an entire book for its search engine. That means that words and phrases contained with a book are searchable and could lead curious readers straight to it.
  • Tantalizing previews. When prospective book buyers identify a relevant book on Google Books, they’re automatically given access to a limited preview, further enticing them to buy.
  • Links to make buying easy. A series of links within the Google Books listing steers readers straight to major online book retailers, where they can purchase quickly and conveniently.

The Google Books Preview Program is an easy, inexpensive and effective way to get a book before a worldwide audience of avid readers. For full details about Outskirts Press’ Google Books Preview option visit the company website at http://www.outskirtspress.com/p/googlebooks.
