The project was created by writers for writers, but very quickly transformed into a full-fledged ecosystem for authors, readers, publishers, bloggers, artists, reciters, editors, librarians and all those connected with literature both in Russia and in other countries.
The portal is an advanced platform of self-publish books, both in terms of time to market, and in terms of the number of unique functionality implemented.
In just one and a half years of operation, Litmarket took the third place in the ranking of the most popular self-publish book sites and the sixth line among literary portals in Russia. This platform is designed not only for reading or listening to free books. Here authors sell their works independently, without the participation of publishers. Here the author finds his/her publisher/artist/declaimer/editor or proofreader. Literary contests with substantial cash prizes and publications are held here. Authors can sell not only electronic and audiobooks, but also autographed paper books, souvenirs or literary services. Together with the writers, Personal Book, a revolutionary format of e-books was developed on our platform. There is no such format either in Russia or in the world. In addition, the site owners do not forget about social projects. Litmarket acts as an information partner or participates in the organization of various book events: National Award for Young authors, I write for children and teenagers conferences, Russian Creative Week in Moscow, Biblionoch and many others.
The portal authors demonstrate excellent results at various literary awards (Russian Detective, Reader's Award, New Children's Book, and others), as well as perform at major domestic book festivals (Moscow International Book Fairs, St. Petersburg Book Salon, non/fiction, Book Lighthouse of St. Petersburg, Book Festival on the Red Square, and others). Thus, the portal has become a stepping stone for thousands of aspiring writers. The main objectives of our project are as follows: Creating a unified literary ecosystem for writers, readers and all representatives of the book industry; Assistance in obtaining well-deserved earnings for writers, reciters, artists, editors, proofreaders and publishers; Establishing contacts between representatives of the book industry with employees of other fields: the film industry, computer game manufacturers, theatre directors and others.
