Free Tools To Write Your Book Online

Text Editor

TheBookPatch was developed by a #1 New York Times Best Selling Author of both fiction and nonfiction. His goal was to create an online tool that would serve established as well as first time authors. It was important that the new tool be designed in keeping with the author's point of view, and not the whims of a programmer.

The result is a set of writing tools that adhere to the authors work flow from an author's prospective. A series of user friendly tools incorporated into a familiar writing platform, building on legible terms such as "Authors notes", "Chapter outlines" and "Cast of characters". The specialty items are integrated seamlessly into an online word processor that mimics Microsoft Word.

And when you are done and ready to publish your book, you just click the Publish button and TheBookPatch will generate the PDF automatically and put you on a fast track to print your book.

Tools

In addition to the specialty tabs that are unique to TheBookPatch online text editor there are additional features that can enhance authors story line and or assist in collaborating with other authors on projects online such as an amazing multi-storyline development tool, and an expandable resource tab. All of the options are book project related and can be added or removed from individual projects.

Adding the online access and backup storage along with an entire array of permissions for multi author collaboration with editors and commentators, you will find this free platform just what authors were dreaming about.

Multi Storyline

The multi-story line option is a unique tool exclusive to the TheBookPatch word processor. It allows multiple storylines to be developed consecutively from a single idea, either as varying scenarios by a single author or a collaborative effort by many simultaneously. Imagine you are writing a mystery novel and would like to explore a variety of storyline options. You can follow chapter 5A with chapter 6A and 6B and C etc'. Or you may team up with other authors, one writes the first chapter and everyone else can follow with a different chapter 2 and so on to infinity.

Access From Anywhere

TheBookPatch is in fact an online cloud-publishing tool, using the Internet as a means for authors to access their work from any computer on the web at any time. Saving your work in a secure and backed-up environment and allows you to collaborate with your co-authors/editors in real time, regardless of geographic restrictions. It also protects the data from computer failure, because the work is stored on our cloud. To provide our users extra peace of mind our system allows secondary backup of the files to your own computer with no restrictions.

Sell a Book

In Our No Fee Bookstore

What exactly is a no fee bookstore?

We mean exactly what we say when we describe our bookstore as a no fee bookstore. If your book printing cost is $2.77 and you price your book in the bookstore to sell at $12.77 the buyer will pay us the $12.77 + shipping and handling, we keep the $2.77 printing price and pay you your $10.00 profit.

We write our authors a check around the 15th of every month for all their sales in the previous month. If your profit was less than $40 the payment will roll over until that amount is earned.

The author determines the retail price, which must be at least $0.01 above the printing cost. The author can change the book price at any time from the Book Dashboard.

Every time a book is sold from the bookstore a copy of the sale invoice (name of purchaser redacted because of privacy laws) will automatically appear in the Book Dashboard to enable the author to track their sales in real time.

There are many ways you as a self-published author can sell your books. Book fairs, local independent bookstores (they usually like to promote local talent), and of course TheBookPatch online bookstore.

How will readers find my book?

We at TheBookPatch update the search engines regularly as they send their robot crawlers to seek whatever new information we post (your book in the bookstore is new information). So if someone is looking for your book and enters the book title or the authors name in Google or any search engine there is a high probability they will be directed to your book in our bookstore.

Consider that just because an online bookstore is big, like Amazon for example, doesn’t give it a preferential search result for their books. With that in mind, doesn’t it make more sense to place your book where you pay the least and retain the most? Remember we take no fees, you get 100% of your markup.

How does TheBookPatch bookstore compare to others?

Most online bookstores such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble which charge up to 55% of the retail price of your book, (and you pay for the printing and shipping from your 45%) we at TheBookPatch charge absolutely nothing and you get to keep 100% of the profit above the printing price. And we do not mind if you sell in the other stores as well.

Why buy an ISBN?

ISBNs are linked to essential information allowing book-sellers, and readers, to know what book they are buying, what the book is about, and who the author is. ISBNs are the global standard for identifying titles. ISBNs are used world-wide as a unique identifier for books. They are used to simplify distribution and purchase of books throughout the global supply chain. Most retailers require ISBNs to track book inventory. Without an ISBN, you will not be found in most book stores, either online or down the street from your house. Getting an ISBN is the first step in self-publishing a book to insure that your book is not lost among the +700,000 titles published a year in English alone.

Having an ISBN barcode on the back of your book that includes the book price allows bookstores to scan your book directly into their point of sale.
