What is BookBaby?

Founded in 2011, BookBaby has grown to become the nation’s leading self-publishing company. Led by a crew of authors, poets, bloggers, and artists, BookBaby is dedicated to helping all writers publish successfully.

Why do writers need BookBaby?

Because self-publishing can be complicated.
It’s our job to make it easy. Look, writing a book is hard enough as it is. But combine that with the need for editing, cover design, formatting, distribution, and promotion and it can turn your everyday Jekyll into a real Hyde. Let the writers write, we’ll handle the rest.

Because traditional publishing deals are so last century.
Self-publishing has existed since the 1400s (at least). But within the past 10 years, it’s become a thriving alternative to the traditional publishing model, giving writers more control and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.

Because we actually care about your book.
Unfortunately, there are some self-publishing companies out there that don’t care too much about their customers. There are many horror stories of writers being kicked to the curb as soon as the tab is paid. That’s not us. We make sure our writers have the tools and information needed to become successful authors—from manuscript to market.

“In an era of usually having to wade through layers of electronic filters before reaching a human, the exceptional customer support from BookBaby was refreshing and unexpected. In every step, they were more concerned about the quality of my project and my satisfaction than just closing the deal.” – Marsha Baumgarner, BookBaby Client
