Indie Author Project


Interested in getting your novel, memoir, poetry collection, children's book and more in eBook and print-ready formats? Pressbooks Public is an easy-to-use online tool that allows you to create professional quality versions of your book in ePUB, MOBI, PDF and other formats.

Plumas County Library is partnering with BiblioBoard's Indie Author Project to offer this opportunity for you to reach a wider audience with your e-book.

After submitting to IAP, your book can be shared with patrons of participating libraries.

Plus, each Spring the program takes submissions to find the best-of-the-best indie ebooks across the nation, and your book may be selected by BiblioBoard curation partners to be shared across the US.

Discover a great new author before they make it big! Read self-published e-books submitted through the Indie Author Project program at Plumas County Library and other public libraries.

Resources are available through December 30, 2022.

The Indie Author Project Expert Sessions are a monthly webinar series featuring indie authors and industry professionals that offer compelling content covering a wide range of writing topics.

This project was supported in whole or in part by CA State Library and the Black Gold Cooperative Library System.
