What is BookWorks? is a friendly, growing, international community for self-publishing authors and the professionals and companies who serve them.  Our goal:  to help our members Prepare, Publish and Promote their books, share what they learn and help each other.  Our members include first time authors and seasoned pros, as well as experienced service providers and indie publishing experts who share their insider knowledge and guidance.


Why should I join BookWorks?

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 have known about your book.


Join the Community FREE

Your free membership in BookWorks gives you access to all our Core offerings. 

Start with our curated Resources Directory, conveniently arranged by categories to help you PREPARE, PUBLISH & PROMOTE your book.  There you will find everything from editorial services and cover designers, to the best industry blogs. 

On the BookWorks Blog , our own resident writers and guest experts, plus Breaking News from across the indie blogosphere, will help you stay on top of everything that’s happening in the dynamic, ever-changing world of self-publishing. They also offer lots of nuts-&-bolts advice and all of this is easily accessible for future reference in our archives. 

Think of your member profile page as your BookWorks home base, your calling card — the place where you connect with other members and promote your work.  We select our home page Featured Authors and a Book of the Week based on the information shared there, and showcase both Book of the Week and Featured Authors on our ever expanding social media network.
