World's Best Story is a Montreal-based transmedia agency that is the first social contest that rewards both writers and readers in the search for the next blockbuster story.
For WBS the book is just the beginning for a great story. We want to reward great stories and their writers with the opportunity to see those stories become a host of great products in top grossing media formats, from print book to ebook, to video game, Web/TV, film and all the cool merchandise that evolve out of stories with innovative plots and characters.

BookGrabbr is a spoke in the wheel of marketing that simply hasn’t been done before. Our platform is built around the most important question of all--- “What is the most powerful way to encourage a reader to read a book?”
Answer--- “The recommendation of a friend."
BookGrabbr bottles that concept up and facilitates it in a digital way by creating a platform for authors and publishers to share extended previews of their books through social media. You may be asking yourself, “How is that any different from any other site where an author can share their book to their social following?”
The answer is simple---BookGrabbr is built to facilitate readers reading in exchange for sharing. So when you share your book and one of your followers clicks to “Grabb” the content you’ve shared, our system requires them to first share the content prior to reading! When those people’s friends see their post inviting them to read and they click the link they will be prompted to do the same thing all the way up the social media ladder. This creates a viral marketing opportunity. With just a few readers thousands of people will be exposed to an author’s book!
Authors have the ability to track real time analytics on how many people are reading their content, how many social media news feeds their book is showing up on, how many of those readers have clicked to purchase the book, and what countries their readers are coming from! Those are just a few of the analytics…We will let you sign up to see the rest.
