I have recently come across FictFact whilst looking up an equine author. It looks like an interesting tool and my books are in the process of being added. Whilst browsing, once again I got to thinking… there are a few different sites that allow for your love of books to be interactive and public – Goodreads and LibraryThing come to mind. So why not a horse book interactive site?
It seems that FictFact provides details in particular on book series. In this way, you can keep up to date on new releases in series from authors. You can also make sure you’re reading the series in book order.
Great idea! I love that Goodreads allows you to track your progress as you read a book. Opportunities to read and review on Goodreads and Librarything are appealing, too.
Horse Book Interactive Site
FictFact makes their money through affiliate sales on Amazon as well as donations via PayPal. For the horse book enthusiast, I am sure a horse book interactive site could be set up and earn an income in time. Things to include could cover:
- Ability to rate horse books
- Chance to follow authors and book series
- Links to be able to buy horse books
- Chances to vote on best horse books and covers
- Interviews with horse book authors
Really, what is included is down to the programming capabilities of the creator/s and their imagination! This is a potential residual income earner, too.
A horse book interactive site I believe could become as popular as Goodreads with horse fans. And when it comes to horse authors, I am sure they would also love such a set up to promote their works.
