BookPress – For Book Authors-WordPress

As the spammers love to say, I stumbled upon this. Well, I truly did.

I never knew WordPress had a book publisher software program.

BookPress – For Book Authors
By Black and White Digital Ltd


Writing a book? Promoting a book? This is the plugin for you. Easily write and display your books on WordPress. Add covers, pages, table of contents, chapters, track progress with word counts and more.

It’s currently difficult to recreate the feel of a book on WordPress – you either need to make your whole site into the ‘book’ or figure out complex work-arounds like creating your own taxonomies. WordPress’s own support section says “There are ways to use a blog to post long-form pieces in chapters, however, though it will require a bit of work.” BookPress solves all this for you!

If your dream is to self-publish your novel, or to create a site where you can mix your blog, books and other features, BookPress is for you.

Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    This is such an interesting information. It’s concept is very similar to what I have done with my wordpress website dedicated to only short stories . I have designed the site like a book of short stories. So glad to see wordpress expand this idea. Thank to you for sharing.

    • Sophia thanks for visiting. I was surprised to find the program. I see where it will be great for authors who want to give away free books. Or even give away a chapter of their book.
      Yes, WordPress does create a community like atmosphere. A great camaraderie. I think that keeps lot of people coming back.
