Writing can be a pretty lonely undertaking, and getting your book published and launched—making it available to the appropriate readers—can be daunting. That’s why a friendly community of people doing the same thing you are can be so comforting and supportive. At BookWorks you can talk to each other, ask questions, offer advice, and connect with potential readers who otherwise may never discover your book.
Our members include first-time authors and seasoned pros, as well as experienced service providers and indie publishing experts who share their insider knowledge.
