Bookswarm specialises in creating wonderful websites for book publishers, agents, bookshops and others in the world of books.
Bookswarm's unwavering sector focus enables us to add considerable value to every project, because we understand the book trade, the book production process and the considerable challenges facing publishers.
We understand publishing. We read the Bookseller every week. You don't have to explain ONIX feeds, AI sheets, ARCs, TCM figures or ISBNs to us. This means we can spend more time talking about what you actually want to achieve, whether you're a publisher or an author.
We're incredibly good value. We keep our costs very low and put together project teams of people we trust to deliver each piece of work.
We're nice people and we like to focus on the books you're working on - because we really love books. We find that makes all the difference.
“I don’t think Bookswarm has worked with a composer before, and Simon’s initial surprise at having to deal with well over 150 works rather than a handful of books quickly gave way to enthusiasm and unfailing support at every stage. This was no easy website to build, but the result is something both very stylish and easy to use – I couldn’t be happier!”
Colin Matthews OBE, Composer
“I can’t speak highly enough of Simon Appleby and the team at Bookswarm. They built a beautiful website for me and Simon was always available to help me learn how to use it.”
Pam Evans, family saga author, most recently of A Distant Dream (Headline)
