Local authors – indie, self-published, aspiring, and mainstream – can now create ebooks and share them with readers across the state and potentially across the country using free tools provided by the Saint Paul Public Library!
Create Your Book
You can design and export a professional quality version of your own ebook using Pressbooks.
Share Your Book
Share your ebook with readers across the state, and potentially the country, using SELF-e.
After a book is uploaded, it is reviewed 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.
Fiction books in English will be reviewed by reviewers at Library Journal. The best-reviewed books are included in a curated collection, SELF-e Select, that is available to readers across the country. The review process for SELF-e Select takes one to two months. Authors are notified by Library Journal/SELF-e if their book is selected for this collection.
Readers can read your ebook, and you can find more ebooks by indie authors on Indie Minnesota.
