Join the Unleashed for $77: Start Here

Authors, you know to set aside a number of your books that will be given away, right? So why not put those books into IBU? You can ship them anywhere across the country, get far more visibility, and earn more bang for your buck through tons of readers and reviews!

Let’s face it… self-publishing can be expensive. From the costs of copy editing ($400+) to development editing ($1000+), your book cover ($300+), the ISBN’s ($200+), and then getting your book formatted and ready to print ($500+), these costs can be overwhelming.

Once your books are printed, Indie Books Unleashed provides the opportunity to increase readership and sales, but for much less money. For just $77, you will receive the following:

  • 10 Indie Books Unleashed stickers to go on the front cover of your books before you ship them out, and 10 Buy-me stickers, too.
  • Your name, headshot, email, website, and book(s) listed on our website.
  • A personalized letter than you can download and customize; the letter will be included inside your book, asking readers to (a) recirculate the book when they’re through reading, and (b) write a review for you at their site of choice, Good Reads, Amazon, etc.
  • Access to our ‘Unleashed’ community on Facebook
  • And through BookTweet, your book will be tweeted for one day, for 24 hours, through your IBU membership to coincide with the shipping date (Note: You may purchase more days directly through BookTweet at

After you sign up, you ship your books to markets you like, directly to participating vendors around the country. In sum, for less than $100, you will have the opportunity to get your book out to dozens of new readers and potentially receive dozens of tweets and reviews. The cost is minimal, but the real-world discoverability of your work is priceless!

Please note that some of IBU’s participating locations are family and children oriented. Therefore, though we believe that all books have merit, we do request that no books in the genre of erotica or abject horror be included in this program. Simply put, use your best judgement when sending off your book. Thank you!

Your initial membership fee with Indie Books Unleashed, LLC is for a lifetime. Any additional books that you self-publish may be listed on IBU’s website for just $39 per publication.
