Book Excerpts

Main Index

Information for Authors:

We want to expose learners to great writing that is interesting and fun and made easier to read through the use of our technology.  By technologically enhancing and promoting excerpts from books like yours we are able to provide learners with great content while providing authors such as yourself with free marketing. This introduces your work to learners who, because of their reading challenges, would otherwise not be as likely to encounter it (or enjoy it if they did). Click here to learn more about the technology, or click on any one of the excerpts below, or our latest “Picture Books” to experience it.

If you would like to contribute an excerpt to our collection please send the following information to:  

  1. An excerpt intended to introduce learners to your book. It should be an excerpt that begins in a way that learners can ‘take off’ with and get hooked on so that they will want to read more.  The excerpt should be between 500 and 1500 words (depending on the type/level of the excerpt). 
  2. High quality JPEG images of your book cover and of yourself. Please feel free to send any other images that you’d like to have included in the published excerpt.
  3. Links to: A) purchasing page (Amazon or other) B) Your personal information / author bio page C) “Other books by” page.

Note: Click on any of the excerpts below and scroll to the bottom of the page to see how we credit authors and display their information. Also check out our latest “Picture Books” to envision an alternative presentation format for your work.

Once we receive your email we will create the excerpt page and send it to you for approval.

Thanks for joining with us to help more kids learn to read.
