Calling all writers, prosaics, poets, and pontificators!
We're excited to announce two great new services for talented writers in our community! You can now submit your eBooks to SELF-e, our new indie eBook publishing service. All eBooks submitted to SELF-e will be added to our Indie Oklahoma collection and will be always available to stream or download by anyone with a Metro Library card. All submissions will also be reviewed by Library Journal and considered for inclusion in LJ Select, a collection of top indie eBooks across various genres. If Library Journal selects your eBook for LJ Select, it will be available to stream or download at any US or Canadian library that subscribes to Biblioboard, the service behind SELF-e, Pressbooks, and Indie Oklahoma.
In addition to SELF-e, authors can take advantage of Pressbooks. With Pressbooks you can create a book from scratch or upload your existing book to write, edit, collaborate, share, and format. You can even use Pressbooks to submit your eBook directly to SELF-e.
