For Authors

Independent Book Review is a writer-friendly, writer-centric, and absolutely writer-crazy promotional platform.

In April 2018, IBR was created to achieve four main things:

  1. Promote awesome small press and self-published books to the general reading public.
  2. Provide authors a new platform to publish complementary work.
  3. Become a trustworthy source of literary services.
  4. Bring our fellow authors together.

With writer-focused content like “3 Tips for Writing Realistic Dialogue–From Jane Austen” and our always updating author opportunities, we hope to encourage authors not to battle with their fellow bards—but to celebrate with them!

We’re all in this together.

And IBR wants to help.
