We help authors collaborate.

BooksGoSocial is a book promotion service providing giant email promotions, social media promotions and author collaboration services reaching over one million readers every week, mostly in the United States.

We also founded the Dublin Writers Conference in 2015. That popular event takes place on the last weekend in June each year. We focus on writing craft and discovery. We provide the only writers' conference in Dublin.

We also provide free training courses for authors on marketing online, a free teams system to connect authors with other authors in their genre, and a free promotion system for authors who run ebook giveaways.

The service was founded by a published author, Laurence O'Bryan. Three of his thrillers were published by Harper Collins. He was also translated into 10 languages. The BooksGoSocial promotion services are built on his thirty years experience in sales and marketing, designing sales campaigns that deliver results.

“Working with BooksGoSocial has been a seamless experience, which has boosted my sales by no small measure. My first promotional event using BooksGoSocial resulted in over 2,000 book sales in one week, and all four of my books landed in the top ten Historical Fiction bestsellers on Amazon. I wouldn’t consider self-publishing without employing Laurence and his team.”

“I’ve been with Books Go Social since November 2013. My WW2 Black Orchestra trilogy continues to sell at a steady rate. I published the 3 books 1 year apart, 2013, 2014, 2015, and my average for the 3 years is about 27 books per day. I dropped the service once or twice for a month at a time and my sales plummeted, so I have no doubt that this service sells my books.”

“I have used Books Go Social for more than a year now and found their professionalism fantastic! They are quick to respond to emails and their works has always exceeded what I expected. I am very happy with the service and know I will continue to use it.”
Michael Haskins on Amazon
Mystery Author

We have helped over 5,000 authors since 2013. Before that I was helping authors through training courses and one to support. Our clients include small publishers in the US, micro-presses and independent authors, mostly in the U.S. but also in the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Ireland.

Our free training courses, free teams and free promotions attract hundreds of five star reviews and supportive emails. Our goal is to help great stories get discovered.
