Self Publishing

The 2019 Virginia Author Project is now closed.  The Project, in partnership with Library Journal and Biblioboard, seeks to find the best indie-published adult and YA fiction in Virginia.

The winners will be announced in October 2019.

Local authors, use Pressbooks to create, edit, format, and generate print-ready and eBook formats for your books and instantly publish to SELF-e.

Have a multimedia project in mind? Your original music, a short movie, oral histories of your community are examples of Creator projects.  Use BiblioBoard® Creator  to easily create and publish your project to share everywhere.  To begin using, email and  request a username. Learn more about Creator, by watching this video.

Authors submit books to the  SELF-e program and share their book with readers in Richmond and throughout Virginia.  If your book is selected by Library Journal, it will be available to readers across the US and Canada.  Find out more about how you can get started today with this short video. Please note: Authors submitting to SELF-e give the SELF-e program a non-exclusive license to make their ebook available to public library patrons via subscribing institutions in the public library market. Participation in SELF-e does not restrict authors and their publishing service providers/future publishers in any manner from promoting and selling their ebooks to any market. Authors also reserve all intellectual and propriety rights in the work— SELF-e does not infringe upon that.
