Submitting Your Book

This service is free for all authors, no matter how you have chosen to indie publish. The submission process takes about 5 minutes, and you are welcome to submit as many of your ebooks as you would like. Before you submit, please make sure that your book is:

– A PDF or an ePUB file
– In the English language
– An original work to which you own the rights

Once submitted, your book will be passed through the Library Journal review process, and you will be notified within 4–6 weeks if your book has been chosen as a SELF-e Selection.

Library Journal is actively reviewing Adult and Young Adult Fiction submissions at this time. We are accepting Nonfiction, Poetry and Children’s submissions, but are still working on plans for when we will begin actively reviewing those genres.

All submissions, regardless of audience or genre, may be included in your local state collections, if you so choose!
