Spintype is a platform for writing, reading and sharing books.
The target content creator audience of the platform is self publishers, who find the traditional author – publisher setups exhausting and unprofitable, and find the current self publishing tools confusing and overwhelming. With Spintype, we have aimed to create a simple platform where authors are in control, have a perfect overview, saves money and time, and which still delivers a professional looking book.
The target reader audience is online readers, who love to share and comment on books they read. Spintype is a platform that lets authors and readers connect directly, without the expensive intermediation of publishers and other middlemen.
Our web-based writing engine features automatic formatting of books. Once written, the book is released on a web-based, embeddable reader. We want to create a platform which makes it easy and cheap to create a professional looking book, and easy to distribute and sell it, and profit from it.
Authors can charge users for reading or make it available for free. Authors can decide to release it on digital book stores to enhance profits.
Readers can share, annotate and download books for offline reading.
Spintype was developed as a spin out of a small Danish publishing company, who had digitised its workflow for guidebooks. The technology needed further development to support flowtext books from individual authors, so a new company, Publishare, were established to focus on this specific solution.
In the beginning, the vision was to support the BTB market of other publishers with smarter workflows. But the inertia of the publishing industry quickly put an end to this vision, and the emerging self publishing market became the inevitable and obvious target audience for the solution.
Spintype was founded by Jesper and Mette Bove-Nielsen together with Martin Tilsted.
