Default Dedicated Booklaunch URL ( booklaunch.io/username/book-title )
By default every Booklaunch page gets a dedicated and unique URL. This URL looks something like booklaunch.io/username/book-title. We give you full ability to customize both your username and the individual "slug" (or in this case "book-title") part of your URL. We recommend keeping your URL short and simple focused on your name and your book title. Here is a great example https://booklaunch.io/gennyheikka/finding-mommy-bliss
