Murielle Maupoint – CEO and Founder of new publishers ‘Britain’s Next Bestseller’.

Murielle grew tired of seeing the publishing industry dominated by the same big players. It frustrated her that some of the world’s best loved books nearly didn’t make it to our shelves… JK Rowling was advised by an editor to ‘get a day job’ since she had little chance of making money in children’s books. Dan Brown was rejected by publishers because his book was ‘so badly written’ and the authors of the 125+ million bestselling ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ received over 140 rejections because ‘Anthologies don’t sell’.

Murielle wanted to give authors a new, fairer way to get published without relying on literary agents, traditional publishers or self-publishing houses.  She also wanted to empower readers so they can decide the books that get published. The books they want to read!

And so on 31st March 2014 Britain’s Next Bestseller was born.

How it works is simple. Our authors have access to a vibrant online platform and powerful social media tools. They must demonstrate demand for their book by securing a pre-agreed number of pre-orders. Hit their target and a guaranteed publishing contract, with industry beating royalties, will see their book go from manuscript to printed masterpiece in just 12 weeks.

Readers get a great deal too… browse exciting manuscripts, search out and support that next bestselling author, their name printed in every edition of the book, along with getting a copy of the book 2 weeks before public release.

Business is going great. After just 7 weeks, 4 authors have already been awarded publishing deals, will see their books in print by autumn 2014.  But don’t just take our word for it check out our or follow us at Twitter: @BNBSbooks Britain’s Next Bestseller – where readers discover new books and authors are discovered.
