Recipients will find a mix of fun items to help make the big day a success. In addition to a handy checklist, we’ve included colorful posters and commemorative t-shirts for both authors and librarians. Our Indie Author Day partners have also included gifts and writerly resources like postcards and notepads. With almost 300 libraries registered across the continent and more added each day, we’ve got our work cut out for us. Watch for your Indie Author Day goody boxes in the mail over the next few weeks, and brag about your swag on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #IndieAuthorDaySwag once you get yours!

    I don’t see my library, but I see one close enough. But, I’m not understanding how this helps me as an indie author. Your advertisement says there will be book signings, readings, etc from indie authors, but that would be those lucky enough to have known about it and signed up or been invited. It doesn’t help me as an indie author be seen. Or, am I missing something?

      Hi Marla,

      Thanks for reaching out. If you are interested in getting involved at a local event, just fill out our author inquiry form and we can make sure your library has your contact information as they are developing their programs for the day. Also, if you would rather help your library learn about the event and get involved if they choose to host one you can let us know about that in the same form. Even if you aren’t able to do a presentation or signing, there are still a lot of valuable things to learn at your library during Indie Author Day from other authors, the librarians, industry specialists and more. Plus, at 2 pm EST there is a digital panel presentation that offers inspiration and advice to indie authors.

    I am a California Writers Club, Sacramento Branch Board member and need more information immediately since I was just told about your Indie Author event. A key question is your definition of “Indie Author”. Does this mean only self-published or does it include author published by small publishers? We have member who fit either catagory. Time is of the essence if I am to ask any libraries to join.

      Hi Raymond,
      Thanks for your question! Our definition of “indie author” is inclusive. Both self-published authors and authors published by small publishers may participate. Best of luck reaching out to your library, and we hope they’ll participate!
      Happy writing,
      The Indie Author Day Team
