Hi, I'm Nicholas Ciarelli.
I'm one of the founders of BookBub. Millions of readers use BookBub every day to discover great books, and our service empowers thousands of leading publishers and authors to drive sales and find new fans. Our investors include NextView Ventures, Founder Collective, Avalon Ventures, and Bloomberg Beta.
Previously, I founded Think Secret, the leading website for news scoops about Apple. The Wall Street Journal called it "one of the most influential websites about the company, drawing analysts, reporters and industry watchers eager to read guesses about Apple's next move." In 2005, Apple sued Think Secret for its reporting, prompting a battle over press freedoms for online journalists. Here's more on Think Secret's history.
After Think Secret, I helped launch the award-winning news and opinion website The Daily Beast.
I'm also an advisor and mentor to media and consumer tech startups, helping founders with product, growth, marketing, and strategy.
