Want to see your e-book at the library?

If the answer is YES – Read this post and the Red linked articles within it 😀

Jean's Writing

I so glad to see the library won’t be left behind now that self-published e-books is taking the world by storm.

Do you want readers to check out your self published e-book at the local library?

Well now it’s possible!

Thank you Jane Friedman for introducing us to Porter Anderson and his post about Self-e Library Journal.

For all the nitty-gritty click and read:

How Self-Published Authors Can Distribute to Libraries  

There are no fees for submissions, nor limits on the number of submissions an individual author can make.

I love comments, almost as much as I love clicks, so after you pass this on to your Facebook and Twitter pals remember to tell me what you think.
If you’re not already, please follow me@jeancogdell on Twitter or jean.cogdell on Facebook!

  1. My local library said they could only pull from contracted sites. Sigh… sad this is not there yet. I do see this as a wave of the future though, coming soon. Fingers crossed that Amazon will lead the libraries into the e-century.

  2. I read the conditions of the competition. It looks like although we retain the rights, by entering we give permission for them to non-exclusively reproduce our work. Does anyone have a different interpretation?
