Sure, anyone can start a book blog, so why use us? We’ve been doing this since 2008, and really have the process down. Part of licensing from us is getting all of our tools, contacts, and experience in getting you a successful launch and ongoing business.

We’ll help you build out your website, teach you how to use it, where to request books, how to track them through the review process, and how to work directly with authors. Using a city-branded website lets you get your local community involved—from booksellers to authors and publishers.

Don’t know how to layout a publication? We can even do that for you as well, or provide you with our templates and let you do it yourself or work with a local designer.

We’ll help you out every step of the way and let you be the central hub of your local literary community.
