The Darlington County Library System is happy to announce indie authors and aspiring writers can now get published! You now have a chance to get your work published electronically through a free system called SELF-e and have it included in a special collection of South Carolina authors called “IndieSC”.
The South Carolina State Library is the first state library in the country to make the SELF-e digital self-publishing platform available to all libraries and their customers in the state for free. Authors can upload their works for free to a SELF-e’s online e-book collection called IndieSC. Once the collection reaches forty books, the IndieSC collection will go live, allowing the Library’s customers to read the e-books on any device at any time. The works of some IndieSC and other “indie” project authors will be selected by Library Journal to become part of a unique library of indie published books available to libraries across the country.
According to Director Jimmie Epling, “This is a great way for new South Carolina authors to get exposure to readers, publishers, and literary agents. Publishers and literary agents troll the Internet looking for self-published books that have the potential of becoming a best seller. SELF-e and IndieSC is one way the Library can help aspiring Darlington County writers realize their dream.”
If you are interested in getting your works published today, all you need to do is go to the Library’s website at www.darlington-lib.org and look for the SELF-e link. It will take you to the South Carolina State Library’s SELF-e webpage for more information and instructions on how to upload your book!
