MyBookTable Bookstore by Author Media

A WordPress Bookstore Plugin to help authors boost book sales on sites like Amazon and Apple iBooks with great-looking book pages.

Forget everything you think you know about selling your book online. We’re changing it. You won’t need SSL certificates, shopping carts, or piles of books in your basement. All you’ll need is a WordPress website. Oh, and a book.

MyBookTable allows you to have your own bookstore that links to online bookstores where visitors can buy the book.

You can find a live demo of MyBookTable in action here.

Star Rating Support (New in 3.0)

It turns out that not everyone who uses MyBookTable is an author. Readers use MyBookTable to post reviews of books they've read. Now MyBookTable has a Star Rating feature so that those book reviewers can rate the books they are reviewing.

MyBookTable 3 has a special section for you to show off endorsements, blurbs, and accolades. Book blurbs can now look better than ever before.

Buy Button Style Packs

Customize your store by showing some of the buy buttons as a bulleted list. Also, choose from multiple buy button color schemes.

Buy Button Shadow Box

Have a a lot of buy buttons cluttering up your book pages? No worries. MyBookTable 2.0 allows you to show a single "buy now" button that opens a shadow box with all your buy buttons.

Featured Book Widget

Feature a book on your sidebar with just a few clicks. You can even add multiple books by adding multiple widgets.

Mobile Responsive

If your WordPress theme is mobile responsive, MyBookTable will react similarly, delivering maximum compatibility for visitors on phones and tablets.

Recommend Books

Do you want to sell books by other authors? MyBookTable now has a "Recommended Books" tag out of the box so you can sell not only your books but other authors' books as well.

Advanced Search Engine Optimization

  • A Search-Optimized Page for Each Book Having a search-optimized book page may seem small, but this option makes a huge difference in how many people find your book. Most authors cram all their books onto one page. With so many titles per page, no one book can rank or get coveted Google juice. MyBookTable allows you to create a page for each book, as well as a page with all books listed, so you get the best of both worlds. Edit one and it updates the other. This gives you a much better chance of ranking higher when someone searches for one of your titles.

  • Native SEO Controls If you don’t currently use an SEO plugin, MyBookTable provides meta titles and descriptions as if you did, complete with optimized defaults in case you don’t want to bother optimizing it yourself.

  • Advanced SEO Integration MyBookTable integrates with popular SEO plugins like WordPress SEO by Yoast and Scribe SEO. If you use one of these plugins, you get full access to their power.

  • Semantic Markup and OpenGraph MyBookTable has built-in semantic markup, giving you the edge on search engines like Google and social networks like Facebook. We do all the heavy lifting for you, so your pages are naturally searchable. This should improve Search Engine Optimization and social optimization.

GoodReads Integration & Book Reviews

MyBookTable has deep integration with the world’s most popular social network for readers. MBT shows your GoodReads reviews, and it provides a button that allows users to add your book to their GoodReads BookShelf.

Built-In Tutorial Videos

MyBookTable has built-in tutorial videos showing you how to use the plugin for maximum effect.

Compatibility Mode

With thousands of WordPress themes in existence, we can’t guarantee that MBT will work with every theme. So we have created a compatibility mode that allows for maximum compatibility with your theme. MyBookTable integrates with all the major theme frameworks, including Genesis, Woo Canvas, most Elegant Themes, and many Theme Forest Themes. Thesis is the only framework known not to work.

Easy Shortcode Interface

MBT adds an icon to the WordPress WYSIWYG Editor that allows you to add MyBookTable shortcodes to your site with just a couple of clicks.

Built-in Breadcrumbs

We have added breadcrumbs, which will not only make your book pages easier to use for your visitors, but will also improve search engine optimization. These breadcrumbs are fully compatible with the Genesis or Woo Canvas breadcrumb systems.

GetNoticed! Theme Integration

MyBookTable can import books from Michael Hyatt's GetNoticed! theme. MyBookTable and GetNoticed! now work together seamlessly.
