BevyWorld is an interactive, virtual meeting place for authors, book lovers, and businesses that serve them.
Our vision is to elevate author-reader engagement by combining the experience of a brick-and-mortar bookstore with immersive, animated technology to create a first-of-its-kind space for book enthusiasts.
Who and what is BevyWorld and why do we matter?
Let's be real. Most virtual bookstores aren't engaging.
BevyWorld was first inspired with you in mind!
BevyWorld was developed by a start-up publishing house.
BevyWorld was imagined by the founders of InkWell Publishing LLC.
InkWell entered the publishing space in 2020 to serve talented storytellers who were often overlooked in a crowded market. It didn't take long to see that one of the biggest challenges came after a book was published. Through BevyWorld, InkWell designed a platform to...

The only cost for book lovers is when you make a purchase. It's just like going to your favorite brick-and-mortar bookstore (but better)! You walk in, browse around, select a few books to purchase, socialize if you're in the mood, then check out.
But book lovers, be warned: We absolutely hope you discover gems you weren't expecting to find. If you're an avid reader, you already know what that's like. You go into a bookstore for one book and walk out with that title, plus three others. Then you immerse yourself in the world of the storyteller. Ahhh!
In 2023, we will introduce a Book Lovers Package. Membership benefits will include:
We want to create membership packages that make sense to avid readers.

We also want to help you take ownership of your writing career. A BevyWorld membership allows you to:
After our official launch (Winter/Spring 2023-2024), author packages range from $15 month to $40 month.
We designed our packages to suit specific needs. Whether you're an author with one title, multiple titles, or an author who also sells products or services (e.g., courses , coaching, etc.), we think you'll be excited about your options and you can upgrade or downgrade your plan anytime.
During our BETA phase, we are gifting 100 authors with a FREE Membership!
Absolutely not. Your only cost to BevyWorld is your monthly membership fee and any add-on services you select.
Once you select and purchase a package, a BevyWorld tour guide will contact you to schedule your onboarding. The tour guide will set up your titles and/or storefront and get you comfortable with all the features in your package.
We would hate to see you go, but you can cancel anytime.
We only ask that you share why you decided to leave and give us an opportunity to enhance your experience. We believe if you have an issue, others likely face similar challenges. Your feedback may inspire improvements for everyone.
BevyWorld's primary objective is to facilitate an environment where authors can take ownership of their brand, proactively promote their titles, and engage with readers.
However, we may enter into a wholesale retail agreement on a case-by-case basis. To be considered, authors must have distribution rights to their titles.
We recognize print and fulfillment is another challenge in the wonderful world of publishing. We have two solutions:
In most cases, here's how it works:
Note: If you miss the 3-day window, we will refund the customer and their order will be canceled. If you miss 3-consecutive 3-day windows, we will contact you about discontining your BevyWorld membership.
BevyWorld does not accept erotica and works that we believe provoke hate.
We believe storytelling can make the world a better place and have the right to decline works that we believe do not approach complex topics from a place of growth.
Great question! Please think of this from the book lovers' experience.
Let's say a guest is browsing BevyWorld and finds your book, along with books by three different authors. If each book redirects to four different places, our guest has to complete four transactions.
Your customer is the book lover. We need to create an experience that makes them raving fans.
We realize we can't be everything to everyone. Below are situations where BevyWorld may not be a good fit for you.
BevyWorld was developed by a small, start-up publishing house.
We are new to the space and have a fresh perspective on what's working well in our industry and how we'd like to inspire change. We believe we do not exist without storytellers, so we if we are going to succeed, we have to help them succeed.
