During this time of unprecedented upheaval, we at Indies United are committed to supporting our schools, libraries, bookstores, book clubs, and other literary groups as we all learn to navigate our new normal. Below you will find the programs we are currently offering.

Look for the Blue Star for participating authors in this program.
In recent years there has been a growing trend for publishing houses to limit or restrict libraries in their ebook purchases. We at Indies United do not support this stance. We believe libraries play an important role in their communities and that restricting access to books is wrong. So, we are going against the trend and will be offering ebooks from select authors to libraries for free and no metered purchasing limits on any of our books in any format. To find out more information about our Outreach program, and how to obtain these books, please contact Lisa Orban at Please use Library Outreach in the subject line. Our books can also be found in Baker & Taylor, Overdrive, Garners and other library purchasing sites.

For local independent bookstores, many of our authors are offering direct purchasing discounts for their books and consignment sales.
