Become an Author

Worth Books is a publishing platform that connects, informs and inspires our community to make a positive impact on the world. We provide a compelling way for executives and entrepreneurs to grow their personal brand and business by bringing their stories from the boardroom to the bookstore. From ghostwriting to marketing and distribution, we work with our authors to tailor a partnership that fits their needs, goals and objectives.

How many entrepreneurs, financial, health and business leaders want to publish a book, have a desire for traditional distribution and also want to retain the rights to their work? Until now, they’ve had no outlet to do so. Worth Books, in partnership with Forefront Books, changes the game in publishing for our authors by leveraging the substantial audience and digital platform of Worth Media and the expertise and distribution power of Simon & Schuster to now offer a one-of-a-kind path to authorship. Authors who publish with Worth Books receive a suite of unique products and opportunities, as well as the publishing acumen behind dozens of New York Times bestsellers.

Everyone has a story and we would love to help you tell yours.

Everyone has a story, and—aside from the sheer thrill of seeing your name in print—there are many reasons why you might be champing at the bit to tell the world your tale. You’ve seen things, you’ve done things, you’ve learnt things, and you know someone, somewhere will resonate with the narrative you have to share. By publishing a book, you can write your own legacy, forever documented with an ISBN number.

But where do you begin? How do you become an actual, legitimate published author?…
