Thousands and thousands of books from indie authors, bestselling authors, new talent and classic masters. Now imagine if those books were free. . . that’s right, free. Not a limited selection. Not, “maybe they are already checked out”; “sorry, try next week.” Buy anytime you want, get the book you want and don’t pay for the book—ever, free. And the best part? The author gets paid.
You still want your favorite authors to get paid. Authors need to make a living. As readers we want to keep them writing and make sure the whole world can continue reading great books. At Eleven we know that your love of reading means you respect the work of writing. We’ve partnered with publishers globally to bring you the best books for free, and we’ve found a way to make sure authors still make a living. The secret is the same as any other form of Internet content—advertising.
At Eleven, we place small relevant ads at the beginning of each chapter. You read the book, and if you find a product you like, or just want to support companies that support reading, click on the ad right from your mobile device. Companies pay the authors, and you get to read the very best books for free. Just as important, making so many ebooks free means more people can have access to great literature and authors can reach more readers who might have skipped their work otherwise. Now you can discover new authors at no risk, share authors with your friends and fellow readers that they may have never taken a chance on, and read that first book from an author who will become one of your all-time favorites.
Advertising Sales Authors earn a portion of advertising dollar payments for each book read. And Eleven's author promotional programs work to engage and convert readers from reading for free to paying fans of authors' books.
Private Buyers Club Book Sales Authors earn industry-standard royalties on book sales from readers who subscribe to Eleven Gold and receive discount pricing on books.
Reward an Author Studies show that when artists generously put their heart and soul into their work, people will reward them just as generously with their financial support. Eleven Free books will also give readers a chance to send their comments and a small payment directly to the author when they love the book.This is entirely voluntary. But, if a reader loves a book, buying the author a cup of coffee and telling them so, is an amazing way to keep authors writing and connect readers with the writing community.
