IBU: Indie Books Unleashed

Are You a Self-Published Author?
If you have a book coming out soon, or have books still sitting in boxes, then Indie Books Unleashed was created for you!

We know that getting your book to print is expensive. We also know that not all writers understand HOW to sell their book once it’s in print. That’s why we started IBU – a program designed to
help Indie Authors sell their books, find new readers, and get reviews.

Indie Books Unleashed helps Authors by (A) getting their books into new markets, and by (B) setting up local book signings to sell more books. 

IBU is a unique and innovative distribution program that provides new book distribution opportunities.


–  Ship your books to participating locations to new markets, for real-world discoverability of your work.

–  Participating locations are places where people go, sit, and wait (i.e. doctors, dealerships, dentists, etc…).

– A personalized letter encourages readers to follow you on FB, sign up for your newsletter, and write an honest online review of your book.

–  Finally, IBU will also set up three LOCAL book signings for you, locations targeted for optimum book sales.

With your one-time membership, you can join a growing community of Self-Published Authors today.  IBU, Indie Books Unleashed is a community-driven, economical program that gets YOUR books sold, read and reviewed.
