What People Say About Us

'We were knocked out by the creativity and intelligence of Screenbase. They connected our book to its market perfectly, and were fast, accurate and highly responsive to our needs. I would recommend them unconditionally to anyone seeking to market their books in a smart way.' Toby Mundy, Publisher, Atlantic Books.

'We are always looking for ways to move forward in our industry, to market books in an innovative, compelling and exciting way. This excellent promotion singles out the book and the author - but it also makes a strong impact on the world of book marketing.' John Bond, Group Sales & Marketing Director, HarperCollins

Publishers are currently missing a lot of opportunities on the web and they are spending a lot of money missing those opportunities. Screenbase understands our business and how to create opportunities that have real resonance both online and offline.' David Graham, MD, Canongate Books

'At last a publisher's site that's like a cool club stocked with well-read friends rather than a lazy corporate exercise.' The Guardian on

'A convergence between publishing and the internet that has not happened before - a fresh way to market books'. The Bookseller

'I just love it. It really grips you from the start, and I particularly like the fact that it's so adult in nature - not at all condescending. I hope it entices a few kids away from their computers and into the books.' Anthony Horowitz, author of the Alex Rider series, on the Scorpia promo
