ARRC2017: Booktopia, platinum sponsor
Romance readers belong to a tight-knit community of passionate and voracious book lovers. It is through the dedicated support and loyalty of romance readers that Booktopia has grown into the largest independent online bookstore in Australia. With millions of active customers, we ship to every corner of the country—reaching customers in remote areas without access to physical bookstores or libraries.
Through our social media, blog, podcast and Youtube channels, Booktopia connects authors to their readers and strives to create an online haven for Australian book lovers.
We love people who love books, which is why we are so pleased to sponsor the 2017 Australian Romance Readers Convention. After all, no-one loves books more than romance readers!
We’ve had a pretty amazing year at Booktopia. We won the National Book Retailer of the Year for 2016 in the Australian Book Industry Awards. This was really a huge honour and something we are very proud of achieving.
We also launched our Author Royalty Club, a brand new program specifically aimed at supporting authors who promote their own books online. The Booktopia Author Royalty Club rewards authors with 7.5% royalties for every sale that results out of traffic they have driven to our website.
The new version of our blog, The Booktopian, was unveiled this past year to great success. We know that a successful online bookseller has to be more than just a shop—it must be a destination where people can go for book reviews, author interviews and the latest industry news. Since our new blog has been integrated onto the website, we have seen a fantastic response from customers.
The Booktopia Podcast has really exploded over the past twelve months, proving that if there’s one thing readers love doing more than actually reading, it’s listening to their favourite authors talking about books.
So whether you’re a romance reader and/or blogger looking to score some free books, or a romance writer curious to know more about our Author Royalty Club—don’t forget to drop by the Booktopia booth at ARRC and chat to Booktopia’s Sarah McDuling. She loves talking about books … especially books about love!
