A few words from IndieReader founder, Amy Edelman
When we launched IndieReader back in 2009, it was with the intent of trying to level the playing field for self, hybrid and small press published authors. I had been both traditionally published (by Simon + Schuster in 1997 and Crown in 2007) and self-published, and so was in a unique position to see the challenges with each. At that time there were no other companies that offered review services for indie authors, let alone distribution and marketing options. It was like a desert out there, and we made it our goal at IR to provide some much needed relief.
Now over 10 years later we have reviewed thousands of indie titles. In that time we have also seen most of the negativity directed to self-publishing disappear, to the point where indie books regularly make the major bestseller lists (which we post weekly), win major literary awards (including our very own Discovery Awards) and sell hundreds of thousands of copies. Which means that the competition to write and publish a great book is only greater, because todays writers are not just competing with other indie authors, they’re competing with traditionally published authors too.
And now more than ever, IR knows exactly what it takes for an indie title to not just succeed, but also to stand out from the pack. So what are you waiting for? Via our curated and ever-expanding range of services, let our team at IndieReader help you build visibility and credibility for your indie book!
