OK, I admit it. I may not be objective. I’m addicted to Ourboox, ever since Ran Shternin and I first created this platform six years ago. Since then I’ve published over 1,300 e-books, long, short, funny, sad, with and without illustrations. Children’s books, satire, tips, education, philosophy and you-name-it.

I’ve been writing since I won my first writing award in third grade, for an article on the importance of municipal fluoridation. I was hooked and still am. So here are the reasons that I believe that authors like me can benefit greatly from this platform.

I have published several children’s books here in Israel and several scientific books. It’s true I have not yet published my first children’s book in the US (I stupidly turned down an offer about twenty years ago). On the other hand, over five million people have watched the three TED-Ed videos I wrote over the last few years. That’s not shabby.

When you begin a book on Ourboox, you first create a title for your book (you can change it later). That gets you going. As soon as you type your title, you are already on the first page.
