I grew up checking books out at our local library. When I became an adult, the local library was one of the first places I visited whenever I moved to a new community. Although, once I acquired my Kindle, the trips to the physical library became less, my reading didn’t slow down. In fact, I still check out books from the library, only now it’s virtual.
So, what a pleasant surprise to discover, via C.S. Larkin and her guest, Porter Anderson, the exciting new program, Self-e.
From Library Journal and BiblioBoard, Self-e is a platform where independent authors can get their ebooks into the American Library system. Wow! You can read about it and even upload your e-book here at @ Live Write Thrive Introducing Authors’ New, Free Entry into Libraries: Self-e.
And while you’re there, submit to the Library Journal’s 2015 Self-Published eBook Awards. $4000 in winnings. The deadline is midnight August 31, 2015.
As always, I’d love to hear your comments. Talk to me. Tell me your story. And as always, you can follow me on Facebook at SheilaMGood and Twitter @cofcmom.

This is truly a great resource for writers. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, Sheila!
Thank you. I’m so happy you found it helpful. And you’re welcome. You have a wonderful blog. I so appreciate you stopping by and feedback is welcome anytime.
This is a fantastic initiative from the library! Our library has held a few short story contests, but that’s it.
Great stuff. I can’t wait for one of mine to be on the shelves ( in a manner of speaking). Thanks for commenting.
