The submission process takes about 10 minutes.
On this page, you will also be able to opt-in to make your ebook(s) available in your state's public libraries in addition to being considered for the Library Journal-curated SELF-e modules.
Enter a few basic items of information, including your Name, Local Library, and Email Address.
We currently accept ebooks in ePub 2 and ePub 3 formats, as well as PDF (authors can submit Print-on-Demand files if they are in PDF). We are currently only accepting ebooks published in English.
Non-US Submissions: If you do not live in the United States, please select “Outside the US” in the drop down menu. Non-US ebooks will be available to library patrons in a collection specifically for books not published in the United States.
We use this information to manage the curation process, manage the judging process and to help readers discover your ebook once it is available to patrons.
You are now finished with the submission process! If you would like to submit another book, simply start over and submit the next title using the same email address.
We are actively reviewing adult and young adult fiction submissions. We will continue to update and offer new, genre-based curated collections in the upcoming months.
If you are writing in mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy or young adult genres, consider submitting your book to the Library Journal Indie Ebook Awards.
We are accepting nonfiction and children’s submissions, but are still working on our plans for when we will be actively reviewing those titles.
All submissions, regardless of audience or genre, will be included in your local state collections!
