Self Publishing - News & Book Announcements

The self publishing industry is one that is quickly changing. With more and more books being published every year, authors need to stay on top of what's happening. Beyond that, they need a way of announcing publication of their book online, getting it in front of readers and sharing their success stories with other authors.

This is a page for you. It's a place to announce your newly published work. In exchange for a permanent post on our site (unless you have violated our terms and conditions in some way), we ask that you send us proof that you have promoted our site in some way. Some ideas: find an article on our site that you like and share it on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or any other social media site. If you have a web site, link to us from your site (make sure to leave the link up as we do check periodically).

Using the form below, you can post the title of the book, a synopsis, a paragraph about the author (you!) and even upload a graphic of your book cover. Once we've verified that you have promoted us in some way, we will publish your listing which you can share with your list, post to Facebook or share with family and friends.

In addition to listing author successes on our self publishing page (more instructions below), we also publish a feed that is full of news stories and current trends in the field of publishing. So be sure to bookmark this page and subscribe to our RSS feed.

If you've found an article that you think is an important read for authors or indie publishers, you can also share it by using the form below.


Below is the form that will allow you to announce the publication of your book or ebook (which will also be published via our RSS feed.) By filling out the form below, you will be creating your own page on our web site with an author photo or short video or photo of the front cover of your book. You can use this page to elicit comments and ratings for your book to build your publicity. (Every time a new comment is added, it is published via our RSS feed.)

The Rules for Submission to Our Self Publishing Announcement Page Are As Follows:

  • Make your description benefit-oriented, but objective. Over-the-top sales pitches and claims are not allowed.
  • Check your spelling. It is not our job to edit your listing. If you're a writer, then show us this by writing a flowing, grammatically correct, tight, error-free blurb about your book.
  • You must link to us to get your page published or promote our site in some way. Once you have submitted your book description, follow the instructions on the Thank You page to add a link from your site to ours and then notify us that you have done so.
  • If your book is for sale on Amazon, we will then add a link from your page on our site to Amazon. If you want to have a link added to your site from ours, then you must list your book in our ebook library and there is a once yearly charge for this.
  • If you want to add a short video about the subject matter of your book, upload the video first to YouTube, then copy and paste the embed video code into the Book Description box below. Do not try to upload it where you upload the author photo or book cover, as this is only for .jpg or .gif files.)
  • Once you've confirmed that you have added a link from our site to yours, your book announcement will be published and you can invite friends, relatives and readers to comment on and rate your book.
  • Follow these steps exactly and we'll publish your book announcement promptly. It's a win-win proposition.
