Hyperink is an ebook publisher that develops titles based on existing demand. Hyperink wants to unlock and sell that untapped information by giving every citizen the ability to publish a book.
By using short and long-range search data (basically what people are usually searching for), Hyperink commissions authors to write highly targeted books on popular search topics.
Hyperink is also welcoming pitches from aspiring authors, promising design, editing and marketing services in exchange for 50% of the royalties.
Hyperink has more than 150 e-books, including guides on how to get into Harvard Business School or market Android applications. There are no ads; e-books sold through the site typically go for $25 and between $2.99 and $9.99 when sold through e-bookstores for Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble’s Nook, or Apple’s (AAPL) iBook.
Kevin Gao, the company’s CEO, wants to publish 100 books per month, available for download on e-readers, tablets, mobile devices and computers.
