Fastpencil Launches New Bookbuy Widget

FastPencil continues to remove inefficiencies in the book authoring, publishing and sales processes by launching the FastPencil BookBuy Widget bringing the bookstore to readers everywhere they hang out on the web. The next generation FastPencil publishing service gives authors full control of content, price, distribution and new integrated features to offer direct selling and increase book awareness.

With the book selling widget, FastPencil completely changes book commerce for authors by extending beyond the limitations of Amazon and other on- and off- line bookstores. When a consumer decides to purchase a book, the FastPencil BookBuy Widget presents them with the easiest possible way to purchase it right now. Unlike Amazon and other online bookstores the BookBuy Widget is customized to sell a specific book directly within the reader's current context of articles, comments and posts found throughout the web.

"Once a book is written, it's all about promotion, which is traditionally the Achilles' heal for most authors," said Steve Wilson, FastPencil Co-Founder and CEO. "Gone are the days of publishers vying for shelf space to sell books. The FastPencil BookBuy Widget empowers authors with the tools to connect directly with their readers to sell more books and make higher profits."

Authors can post the FastPencil BookBuy Widget anywhere on the web including Facebook and blogs, enabling readers to instantly preview and purchase their book.
