For Authors



The world becomes a bookstore

Add your book's settings to the Squirl platform for free.

In a world where a new book is added to Amazon every 5 minutes and classics remain on the bestseller lists for years, even decades, discovery is every author's #1 issue.

Relevance and real serendipity are hard to achieve without a big marketing budget or an army of social media specialists. Add your book's real-world settings to the Squirl platform once, and you are all set!

No matter if you are a bestselling author or you just wrote your first novel, readers can bump into your book's settings and step right into your story. Every setting becomes a portal into your book and a highly engaging sales opportunity,

Best of all, Squirl is completely free for both authors and readers!
