Bookswarm specialises in creating wonderful websites for book publishers, authors, 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.

They have been patient with us, as we are a small team, and understanding of our particular needs.”

“Bookswarm have a strong understanding of the role websites play within the publishing industry and, specifically in my case, within the world of children’s fiction. They created a site that perfectly captured the playfulness of my stories, was easy to navigate, colourful and intelligently designed.”
Jo Simmons, author of the Pip Street books for children (Scholastic)

Bookswarm know exactly what they are doing, they do it brilliantly and so I was able to get on with doing my ‘thing’. Use them… you’ll live happily ever after!”
