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.
“Simon is a genius! His publishing portfolio and creativity caught our eye, along with his good value quote, and from start to finish Bookswarm have been effective and a pleasure to work with.”
Helen Bryant, Founder, Cornerstones
“Simon has successfully delivered a diverse range of projects for us at Octopus, from hand-crafted illustrated e-books and complex apps to websites and databases. He understands book publishing extremely well, is bang up to date yet refreshingly free of geek-speak, and is a highly creative, nimble problem solver.”
Denise Bates, Group Publishing Director, Octopus Publishing Group
“Having designed me a stylish website, which is simplicity itself for me to maintain and update, Bookswarm have always been wonderfully speedy and a pleasure to deal with when I’ve needed some radical change making to the site’s structure or functions. I’d recommend them highly to any other writers or creative types who need a website and don’t want to know too much about what happens under the bonnet…”
Patrick Gale, author of Richard and Judy bestsellers Notes From An Exhibition and A Perfectly Good Man
