The Quarterly Newsletter for Independent
Authors, Publishers, and Supporters
we work to launch The Journal of Independent Authors, Publishers
and Booksellers--an English-language publication supporting
independent authors, publishers, and booksellers in North
America--we wondered what we could do to support indies in the more
immediate future. The idea we came up with was a quarterly
newsletter that could evolve into the journal we all want to create.
We're now accepting article, news, resource, and event submissions
for Indie Book News. Submit your article, news, resource, or
event for possible publication by
Clicking this link. By submitting your work, you are agreeing to
give Go Indie & Reagent Press a non-exclusive, perpetual,
irrevocable worldwide right to use your submission and any edited,
revised or modified form thereof in any and all media.
Our lofty reason for creating Indie Books News is to "help
spread positive information about independent authors, their books,
their publishers, and those who are helping support indies, and to
act as an industry resource for independent authors, books, and
supporters." That's our mission, and what we'd like to achieve. And
we're looking for passionate, committed people who love to share
their knowledge and want to provide relevant articles as well as
information about resources, upcoming events, news, and more.
Wondering what's in it for you? Well, recognition and
reputation are two key reasons to become a contributor. Any
submission we use will be attributed with a byline that includes
your name and a short bio (provided one is provided at time of
submission). Readers will see your name and learn about your
work. Your knowledge, skill, and expertise will come through.
Readers will start to learn that you are a trusted resource. We also
hope the newsletter helps readers discover and connect with indie
authors, publishers, and supporters as we work toward a better world
for us all.
The best part is that this is just the beginning. Call it v.1 if you
want. We hope this project will grow and change over time and we're
also looking for your suggestions on where the newsletter should go,
what features should be added, and what we can do to help you
Similar projects have come and gone before us. There was nothing
wrong with them, but we think we can create something different,
something unique and useful. We hope you agree and will want to
