What happened to my old Booktype 1.6 account?

A while ago you subscribed to our Booktype Pro - Starter [OLD] service based on the 1.6 version of our Booktype software. Since that version we have released a completely re-written and widely improved version, Booktype 2.0

Your Booktype account is running on the 1.6 version; we will no longer be maintaining that version and will be closing all accounts and instances based on this version starting May 31st, 2016. 

If you are still working on books in your Booktype account, please contact us within the before August 1st. Until then, it would be possible to recover your data. If you still need a book editor, please have a look at our new writers platform Omnibook (
Omnibook is based on the latest Booktype version and is constantly being updated with the newest features. All you need to do is sign up for free and start writing your book (one book per account). The import function in Omnibook enables you to import Word docx manuscripts or your existing e-books from your current Booktype Pro account. So to move and existing content, simply export your books to an epub file on the existing 1.6 Booktype instance and import them to omnibook. 

We think the usage is intuitive but just in case you need more information, you can find a comprehensive manual for Booktype 2.0 here:

If you are considering doing your own installation/instance of Booktype 2.0 for a more extended usage, we do offer set-up and customization services, managed hosting, support plans etc. Just let us know if you would like any further info on that.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at We look forward to hearing from you!
