Indie Author Project

The Indie Author Project helps authors reach readers and promote their work. Submit your ebook to the Indie Author Project and opt-in for inclusion in Indie Minnesota, a statewide collection promoting local authors.

Submissions must be in EPUB or PDF file format. You can use Pressbooks, a free online tool, to export your book into one of these formats.

What Happens Next?

After a book is uploaded, it is vetted to ensure that it is technically sound and does not infringe on copyrights. This initial review takes a few days. After that, the book will appear in Indie Minnesota, available to all Minnesotans.

If your book is selected by Indie Author Project curation partners, it will also be available alongside other great indie reads in participating libraries across the U.S. and Canada. Authors will be notified if the book has been chosen as an Indie Author Project Selection within 4-6 weeks.

Currently, curators are actively reviewing Adult and Young Adult Fiction submissions. They are also accepting Nonfiction, Poetry, and Children’s submissions, but are still working on plans for when curators will begin actively reviewing those genres.

All submissions, regardless of audience or genre, may be included in the local Indie Minnesota collection, if you so choose!
