WE LOVE AUTHORS.
LET US HELP YOU SUCCEED.

You are your greatest asset. Put your time, effort and money into training, grooming, and encouraging your greatest asset.

TOM HOPKINS

"Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort." ~ John Ruskin

There's no getting around it. Not everyone is going to be the next J.K. Rowling or Kat Martin. That's not how the author industry works, nor should it. Obtaining that kind of celebrity status takes talent, a lot of hard work, dedication, and luck.

That's not to say you have to be the greatest writer who ever lived. What you must have is drive and commitment. Rowling and Sylvester Stallone are great examples of success happening due to sheer willpower and having the ability to write stories that would capture the hearts and minds of audiences world wide.

Authors.biz was created to help give you a hand getting started. A path forward, if you will. Used well, it may just lead to great things in the future.

Remember, much depends on the choices you make now as well as those you make going forward.

We've helped many authors already, and we can help you, too!

Everyone advised that a new author should have a website even before the first novel is published. Having met Corey through a writers’ workshop sponsored by Blue Cottage Agency in 2015, I sought his assistance in creating my site.

Corey is very knowledgeable in his field and designed a beautiful site. He was open to my ideas, and most important, he patiently guided me through its operation and continues to do so.

Thank you Corey for assisting this newbie author, who is now published under the pen name Rosemary Vaughn.

Corey is amazing. We had major issue and was told by our hosting company that there was “nothing they could do about it.” We called Corey and he had the issue resolved and our site back up within an hour. His knowledge and responsiveness saved the day...

*Becky is a client of MidState Design, and (more recently),
joined Authors.biz as an independent service provider.
