About us

Meet Our Humans


Your trusted resource for high-quality self-publishing, enhancing your writing, making connections with publishing pros, finding and reading good books, and much more.

 01. Strategic

Writers and publishers need to think strategically about positioning their books and manuscript –what tools to use, best practices to employ, the most likely paths to market. Our people and services guide writers on how to get published, make connections with publishing pros, learn about the publishing industry and discover how successful writers get published, in order to better map their own strategies. 

02. Professional

The publishing pros listed on our site (along with our contributors and staff) have earned their reputations for experience and trustworthiness. Our self-publishing unit has created more than 200 self-published titles for clients. Our separate agency unit has worked with major traditional publishers such as Simon & Schuster, Random House, McGraw Hill, St. Martin’s Press and others, and we have been involved in deals with Netflix and other studios. We keep ads to a minimum and do not directly share your information with third-party vendors.

.03. Loyal

Authorlink®, founded in 1996, is among the longest-running sites on the Internet for writing and publishing and has won many awards through the years. We plan to be around for a long time. We are deeply committed to helping writers tell their stories, and be seen by publishing pros. We post thousands of free articles and interviews to help users learn about the publishing industry. Being informed about how the industry works can enhance one’s chances of being published.
