BiblioFight is a service wherein each month 3 books are chosen to “Compete” for sales that month. BiblioFight promotes the books and encourages authors to promote the competition.
The sales (and thus the ‘winner’) is determined by sales made through each of the three competitor’s listings at FindANewBook.com in the Episode’s Category on the site.
Things to Know Before You Start
- Each month’s competition is called an “Episode”.
- Each Year’s Episodes comprise a “Season” (Similar to episodic television).
- The Author will need to sign up for an account at FindANewBook.com (which is free) so that they can receive money from orders. Details on that service are on the FindANewBook.com website
Choosing the Books
Authors are asked to submit an online form of interest to Bibliofight, located here. The form provides information regarding the title, the author and the publisher (if necessary). If chosen to compete in an upcoming episode, the author will be contacted and asked to provide 3 copies of their book for the BiblioFight Podcast team and staff to read and review. Staff will look to match 3 books of similar genre and length for each episode.
If Chosen, the author will be sent a checklist of promotional items, some will be optional, some will be mandatory, that they will be asked to perform before and during their Episode.
Episode Duration (Order Period)
The Episode will begin at 12:01am on the first day of the month, and end at 11:59pm on the last day of the month. Once the episode concludes, the book will still be available at FindANewBook.com in accordance with their policies, but sales will not longer count for determining a winner.
Pricing of the Books During the Episode
Per the policies of FindANewBook.com, pricing is determined by the author/publisher creating the listing. BiblioFight staff may ask about that pricing in advance, to make sure that the pricing is consistent between the three books in a particular episode.
Ordering and Fulfillment
It will be the responsibility of the Seller to fulfill all orders placed during the month of the Episode. It is the expectation that Sellers will fulfill orders as they are placed during the month.
In accordance with the policies of FindANewBook.com, provided that the author publisher uses their Paypal email address in creating their FANB account, 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the author in question (minus whatever charges Paypal applies to the transaction).
Following the Episode
Following the Episode the title will be listed on the BiblioFight.com in the “Fights of Yore!” Category. Links to other purchase locations will be offered, allowing interested parties to purchase the book through other retailers (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.)
