Zory is an app bringing interactivity to romance books.

Zory merges the best parts of mobile casual games with the maturity and quality of bestselling romance books. In doing so, we're creating a new way for readers to read for *free* while still paying authors. It's an ethical alternative to pirating books and a fun new adventure in reading.

Our Kickstarter is launching August 24th. You can help support authors and artists who are offering exclusive rewards to help raise money for the Zory app! Check it out here.

for the authors

Comprehensive Services

Zory will provide editing, copyediting, design, publicity and marketing, commissioned artwork (with your input and vision), and advances, should we get enough funding.

Payments

You'll get paid for any monetized in-app currencies (keys or diamonds) spent on your titles. The more chapters and diamond choices you write, the more opportunities for readers to spend, the more you can earn.

Shared Analytics

We'll provide you the data on everything from the number of reads, chapter progress, which choices monetize the best, and more. We want you to be informed about what's working and what could improve so you can learn and create the best content for your audience. These insights will help you both on Zory and your books in general!

Interactive Fiction (IF) Assistance

We're here to provide collaborative help when you want it (and lay off once you’re comfortable). We won’t take over your story and change it to fit our app like some of our competitors do. We want to help you write your story in a way so that the app serves the story, not the other way around.

Cross-Promotional Funnel

We will cross-promote your non-interactive books on our app. We want to help you earn a greater readership and thrive as an author both on and off Zory.

Expand Your Readership

The market for IF is vast, young, and ready to discover your books. Expand your readership to a market of gamers who devour IF and will fall in love with your works in an interactive format.

Limited Exclusivity

We ask for exclusivity for diamond content, and we ask that you don’t list the same interactive book(s) on a competitor interactive platform. Otherwise, enjoy publishing your book anywhere and in any way you like.

Work with Ethical People

Zory is made up of a tight-knit group of people passionate about improving the industry for authors and readers alike. We know that when we all succeed, we all thrive—we’ve designed our business model to allow us to gradually grow so that we can always put author revenues first. We believe in the long game of mutual success by doing the right thing.
