About Us

Words Are Swords started as an independent publishing house in 2015. As we saw that the needs of authors change, we adapted to meet those needs.

Today, we are a one-stop shop for everything a writer could ever need. Check out our extensive list of services and see for yourself.

We're Experienced

We’ve been doing this long enough to know what works, what is a waste of time, and how to adapt to rapidly changing trends within the literary industry.

We're Detailed

“It’s the little things that count,” which very true when it comes to selling books, although it’s also a mantra that our copy editors live by.

We're Innovative

As one of the literary marketing industry leaders, perhaps what we’re best known for is coming up with new & innovative ways to market, sell, and distribute books.

Our team is impassioned by seeing new authors succeed. It’s what drives us and what keeps clients coming back. That’s why we offer new clients free, personalized marketing strategies.

86Books Ghostwritten

42Bestsellers Made



Includes ghostwriting, cover design, formatting, editing & proofreading and as much or as little as you need to create something you’re proud of.


We have a highly-personalized approach to publishing because we understand that what works for one authors won’t necessarily work for another. See our different type of publishing services for more information.

3..  SELL

Fact: No two books can be marketed the same way. We work with authors to create personalized marketing strategies at the beginning of a books lifecycle and take the time to explain how to optimize potential earnings every step of the way.


The unfortunate reason most self-published authors fail is because they try market a book after they publish it instead of marketing themselves for the duration of their author career. At WASP, publicity means job security for authors, and whenever you’re ready to release your next book, we’ll be here waiting patiently along with your readers.
