About SheBooks 2018-06-01T14:19:07+00:00

SheBooks is an innovative ebook-only publishing platform for short books that can be read on-the-go. These stories are written by women, for women, and designed to be enjoyed in the few precious moments we get to immerse ourselves in a story. SheBooks is an ebook-only imprint of the award-winning hybrid press, She Writes Press. Our catalog includes New York Times and USA Today bestselling and award-winning authors like Caroline Leavitt, Hope Edelman, Ann Pearlman, Faith Adiele, and many more. SheBooks titles are distributed by Ingram Publisher Services across 127 e-retail platforms.

SheBooks was co-founded in 2013 by Laura Fraser, journalist and best-selling author (An Italian Affair); veteran magazine editor Peggy Northrop (former Global Editor-in-Chief of Reader’s Digest and former Editor-in-Chief of More magazine and Sunset magazine); and publishing veteran Rachel Greenfield (former Executive Vice President, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia).

When it launched, SheBooks was awarded a seed grant by the New Media Women’s Entrepreneurial Fund, raised additional funding, and was able to publish 75 high-quality short ebook titles.

In 2018, SheBooks was acquired by SparkPoint Studio, LLC, and became the ebook-only arm of their award-winning hybrid imprint, She Writes Press. SparkPoint Studio is also home of BookSparks, SheWrites.com, She Reads.com, and SparkPress, our other award-winning imprint for female and male authors.

Why SheBooks

SheBooks (an imprint of She Writes Press which is a SparkPoint Studio brand) is unique in the world of publishing because it offers authors a way to share their short works with readers in a digital format that’s traditionally distributed to 127 ebook retailers.

SheBooks offers authors an innovative “third way” to publish that’s neither traditional publishing nor self-publishing. Our parent imprint, She Writes Press, has blazed the trail for hybrid and independent publishers, producing award-winning titles with full traditional distribution and incredible cover art and interior design that rival any traditionally published book.

Our model has been called hybrid publishing, partnership publishing, and co-publishing, and all of these terms are representative of what we do. Unlike self-publishing platforms that publish without regard for quality, SheBooks carefully reviews each manuscript to curate a list for each season that we proudly stand behind. We are your partner in the publishing process. Traditional publishing houses buy the majority stake in your book but often don’t provide the editorial and marketing help you need to truly be successful. Choosing SheBooks gives you access to our experienced editorial and publishing team for support while also allowing you to retain full ownership of your project and earnings.
