Submitting Your E-Book

Submissions must be in EPUB or PDF file format. After you upload your book to Indie Minnesota, it is vetted to ensure that it is technically sound and does not infringe on copyrights. This initial review takes a few days.Your e-book will then appear in Indie Minnesota, a statewide collection promoting independently-published local authors.

If your book is selected by Indie Author Project curation partners, it will also be available alongside other great indie reads in participating libraries across the U.S. and Canada. Authors will be notified if the book has been chosen as an Indie Author Project Selection within 4-6 weeks.

Currently, curators are actively reviewing Adult and Young Adult Fiction submissions. They are also accepting Nonfiction, Poetry, and Children’s submissions, but are still working on plans for when curators will begin actively reviewing those genres.

All submissions, regardless of audience or genre, may be included in the local Indie Minnesota collection.
