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.
“Bookswarm really are the people to go if you an author looking for your ideal website. They have made my vision into a reality, and I couldn’t be more delighted with the final result. Simon is highly professional, genuine, so supportive, a great communicator and always easily contactable. Highly recommend!”
Dr Genevieve Von Lob, author of parenting books Five Deep Breaths and Happy Parent, Happy Child
“Working with Bookswarm on both the branding and website development of our new fiction imprint, Hoopoe, was both a pleasure and a breeze. The Bookswarm team understood our needs with least effort and promptly came back with ideas that were just what we were looking for but could not conceptualize ourselves. They combine technical experience with creativity, and love for books with a deep understanding of the publishing industry. You can’t wish for a more innovative, supportive, and responsive team!”
Tarek El-Elaimy, Marketing Manager for North America, The American University in Cairo Press
“For so long we had been looking for a way to improve our profile and display a more professional image. Our website was the last step in a new chapter in our company and Bookswarm were integral in getting us there. Not only did they design a website with everything we needed, but their personal-touch approach and dedication to keeping our individuality meant that we felt secure all the way through the process. Their after-care is also fantastic and we feel we can contact them at any point for technical help or follow up design queries.”
