PublishDrive’s AI categorization tool

The most important way to reach your audience is by providing relevant and specific categories for your book. It’s not the easiest thing to do as these formats and structures (at PublishDrive we use BISAC) are relatively complicated to understand first.

This is where PublishDrive’s new development comes in: we created a robot using the latest artificial intelligence technologies to help you to find the right categories for your books. They are called Savant, and their only job is to read your book and suggest categories!

Where can you find this feature?

The new AI works automatically when you upload a book. After the content file is uploaded successfully, Savant reads it immediately and tries to relate it to one or more BISAC categories. When it succeeds, the newly matched categories are then displayed in the categories section of the book upload page.

Remember, these are only suggestions. You get to decide if you want to use any of them.

To accept Savant’s suggestion, click on the accept button, and if you disagree, click delete.

When does it work?

Every time you upload an epub, Savant will source for categories, but there are a few situations when the AI won’t be able to provide any results:

  • If the language of the book is other than English
  • If Savant is not sure enough to share a suggestion
  • If you provided three categories before

In these situations, you won’t see any suggestions, and the Categories section will remain empty for you to provide your own.
