About Us

Readership is a digital book publisher controlled by readers. It was created out of a desire to see more publishers embedding themselves in online culture. We’ve seen what communities across the digital world can achieve – particularly when they’re passionate about something – so we’ve created a space that embraces that passion and gives readers the ultimate say in what gets published.


How it works

Writers upload extracts

Readers vote Yes or No

Readers add donations to every Yes vote

Every title that reaches its target will be published


Here at Readership we’ll promote the extracts on the site through online campaigns and community activities. To compete with the multi-faceted nature of the entertainment industry – particularly with online content – Readership also provides authors with the space to upload any audio or video content they’ve created which they feel complements their writing.


Welcome to a place where the only approval you need is the reader's.
