We support international newcomers as well as experienced designers artists and authors.
We provide each author a page on our website.
This can be designed by the author himself in cooperation with us. This service is free of charge!
External links on the author pages are checked before release. The author's page can be used for advertising purposes for his / her own books, but not for third parties without our knowledge and outside of our authors.
If you are an author and want to use our free service, follow these steps:
- Register via our website artdesign88 and via the form on the author's page.
- You will receive a confirmation from us.
- Send us your books, covers and texts. We will then publish them in our shop.
- We will create a page for you after you have told us your wishes for the design.
- You send us texts, images and links that you would like to have placed on your site.
- We will keep you informed. Setting up your page usually takes no more than 5 business days.
This way, you save yourself expensive web designers, hosting, and website URLs as subdomains where no one will find you, such as; 56789f5d2a44e.site999.me. In contrast, on artdesign88 you get a "REAL" page! Examples: https://artdesign88.org/carla-mayers; https://artdesign88.net/carla-mayers; https://artdesign88.org/ben-king; https://artdesign88.net/de/brigitte-falk etc. You can create your page in different languages. At the moment we offer english, german and spanish. This means that your website will be found in many regions of the world.
We would be delighted if you would host your books on our pages. You benefit from 90% of the net price of the book sale. Amounts from book sales to authors are always paid out on the following Monday after receipt of payment. For our writers, this means that they don't have to wait weeks or even months for their payouts, as is often the case elsewhere. We are friends of authors and are therefore actively committed to culture and the written word.
In addition, you can enjoy further advantages with artdesign88:
-Shelf: Share your review copies, design documents, and more on our login-protected shelf. Here you can exchange anything you want with other authors, readers and us. You have an overview of versions of your files, can set permissions and offer downloads. Each user can be given individual permissions.
- RSS Feed Dashboard (feed): In the RSS feed dashboard, desired and meaningful content is provided for authors and readers. Each author can enter their own feeds or those they would like to see. This central and concentrated load of information saves you a lot of time and provides you with everything you want to know in just one place.
Authors who host at least 3 of their books with us can also have their own RSS feeds for their articles created in our "Kulturhotel (under construction and platform for reading rounds, advertising for books and everything related to books)" and then display them via the RSS feed dashboard. In addition, we enter your personal RSS feeds in feed databases so that you and your books are seen many times more. Your RSS feeds can also include images, announcements of new releases, reading rounds, and more. In conjunction with your own newsletter, authors have an unbeatable variety of advertising and publicity options with us!
