WILL JOINING OR SUBMITTING AFFECT ME BEING IN KU?
No. You can add your books free and a link to your preferred sales channels. We don’t sell your book, it is a way to promote. So if anything, it has a positive impact on KU.
We also don’t add affiliate links.
IS ADDING MY BOOKS ON THE BOOKSOFFICE PLATFORM FREE?
Yes! You can add your book details and publish to the site quickly and easily for free.
If you save your book as a draft, don’t forget to click the green Publish Button at the top of your ‘Edit Book’ page – otherwise you book won’t appear on the site.
There is an admin charge to submit to a project, of £29.
How do I deal with my series of books?
The best way to make the most of the opportunity is to upload and publish all the books to the platform so that readers can view them and click through to your sales link – this is FREE.
Only submit the first book, or the one that you feel best represents the series, to the project.
How do I deal with multiple series or standalones?
If you have more than one crime series, or more than one standalone crime book, then you might want to consider making more than one submission, but bear in mind that your readers may then have to split their votes.
Do I need to upload my manuscript?
No. For promoting your books on the site and to submit to a project, we ask you to upload a book cover image and then add details such as a synopsis or blurb to describe your story.
IS THERE ONLY ONE WINNER?
Technically there is one winner of the main prize, but just as with a search like The X Factor or The Voice in music we’re looking for talented authors with great stories that match the needs of producers and channels, so we hope there will be more opportunities along the way.
And as many of you already recognise, the is as much a marketing opportunity and chance to get attention for you and your books as anything else.
How is the voting counted?
The BooksOffice system records and time-stamps every transaction. We record the person who has voted, the story and author they have voted for, the number of votes allocated and the exact time the votes were cast.
The system itself caluclates the total, but each is individually and independently verifiable.
Below are the videos that show how your readers view and participate in the voting process and how they can see their votes and how they were cast in their own dashboards. There’s also a video that shows how they can invite friends to vote.
