Totally Booked

Turn your website into a book marketing machine! TotallyBooked allows you to add books, purchase buttons, and extras to your site in minutes.

Other plugin developers make authors pay for these features. Why are you giving this plugin away for free?

We’ve worked with the author community for years, and we think authors are awesome. We want to see them succeed, and believe in paying it forward. We are releasing a paid version of our plugin that has even more features, but we believe every author should have the basics included in our free version.

Why have you included so many online booksellers? Isn’t that overkill?

We’ve included multiple online retailers, because book buyers at some of these sites will refuse to stock your books if you don’t have a link to their site included on yours. We want to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.

I have an affiliate account with Amazon (or one of the other booksellers you’ve included), will it work with your system?

Absolutely. Build your affiliate link in the bookseller’s system first, then paste it into the applicable box in our system, and start earning affiliate credit immediately.

I already have books pages on my site. Do I have to delete them to use your system?

Not at all! Deleting your existing pages will break any inbound links to those pages from reviewers, book bloggers, etc, and generate 404 page errors for the search engines. THAT is never a good thing.

Besides the auto-generated pages the plugin creates, our system also allows you to embed your books via shortcode, on your existing pages. You can embed your books by series, by genre, or book by book, on any of your existing pages or in a blog post.

I want to link to other resources for my book (discussion guide, interview, video trailer, etc) can I do that with your plugin?

You bet. We offer a Reader Extras section, where you can add as many additional links as you need.

I’ve added all my books to TotallyBooked, but I want to change the books’ display order on my pages. Is this possible?

Absolutely. We’ve set up our system to work seamlessly with the Simple Page Ordering plugin (you can find it here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-page-ordering/) which will give you everything you need to make this happen. Install Simple Page Ordering to your plugins folder, then go to your Books page within the TotallyBooked system, and drag and drop your books into the order you’d like.

I love your system, but I’d really like to change the way the book cover, reader extras, links, etc. display on my site. Can I do this?

You bet you can! To customize the layout, use the templating functionality we’ve built-in to the system. (Note: Some coding expertise is required for these changes, so if code is not your forte, ask your web manager or favorite programmer for help). Instructions for templating the plugin layout can be found Here
