Connecting stories with their real-world settings
With Squirl Maps, authors and publishers can easily create a map of a book’s real-world settings. Each map can be shared for promotional purposes or as a story companion for the author’s existing audience. From James Joyce’s Dublin to a South African crime scene in a Rizzoli and Isles novel, readers can explore the story’s settings, read the excerpt and step into the characters’ footsteps with the built-in Streetview feature.
Squirl Maps launches with 12 featured maps, including classics like “Frankenstein” and “Huckleberry Finn” along with hundreds of other works from both traditional publishers and self-published authors. Books added to the Squirl app will automatically be available on the new platform.
Squirl Maps is free for authors and readers.
