What is "The Banyon Network"
and who are its members?


Banyon Publishing has formed a community of diverse authors from throughout the world (yes 'world'), who are all self published and probably not by Banyon. It is our goal that these authors have a central place to gather, beyond the confines of their websites. A place where they can be seen, discovered and hopefully grow. A 'link'--ing location designed to increase their sales (albeit their sales will likely take place from their websites and elsewhere) and their identity. Yes, a true author's community is what this is all about! So stay tuned and help us give a big Banyon welcome to the authors we are all waiting to meet.
Thank You.

If you find that an author's website link no longer is available, may we suggest that you can often locate the author's book(s) by Googling the book and or author. Unfortunately many self-published author's just do not receive enough traffic, which can result in sales, and they give up on maintaining a website. We have tried to address this common problem with the following company (so click on the blinking notice below for more info). Thank you for visiting us.
