Why You Need to Join Published.com

We Hope You Love Published.com

Published.com has provided free book promotion for authors since 1997.

We encourage all authors to make the Published.com Book Directory their first book marketing move for all new or previously published titles.

It’s totally free and comes with no strings attached -- it’s our way of supporting independently published writers and artists.
