Indie Book News
The Quarterly Newsletter for Independent
Authors, Publishers, and Supporters

As 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.

Why participate?

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 succeed.

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 participate.
