Indie Author Project
The Indie Author Project (IAP) is a publishing community that includes public libraries, authors, curators, and readers working together to connect library patrons with great indie-published books. IAP has helped hundreds of libraries engage their local creative community and assisted in getting more than 12,000 indie authors into their local libraries. Most importantly, the project has worked with top curation partners and librarians to identify hundreds of these as the best indie eBooks available to readers—so they can be sustainably circulated to library patrons with confidence
Look for the Yellow Dimond for our authors who are participating in this program.
*All of our books are available for purchase through a multitude of book distributors, library purchasing sites, and some of our authors have direct from the author purchasing options. You will find all our retail purchasing links on this website.
