Posting on the Author Network

BookWorks new Author Network lets authors connect with each other and with our service provider members. Visit the Author Network to interact with fellow members, view their work, share status updates and get advice to improve your craft. We also encourage you to warn one another of the challenges you've overcome to spare others the same mistakes. The Author Network feature is where the BookWorks tribe can meet and mingle to help support and empower each other, which is our mission.

The Author Network functions much like some of the big social networks you use, but it's all authors like you. You can invite Friends and form Groups of like-minded members, perhaps those who work in the same genre(s) that you do.

First of all, a few rules of engagement…

  1. Keep it helpful, supportive and respectful.
  2. Feel free to share your accomplishments, highlights of your self-publishing journey, news, and helpful tips that may save a fellow author unnecessary pitfalls.
  3. Ask questions, pick our brains, post some upbeat encouragement, inspiring quotes and light-hearted humor.
  4. HAVE FUN! 

(This is not the venue for shameless self-promotion, pitching services or blatant advertising and those or any other inappropriate posts will be removed at the discretion of our admin team.)
