Calling all indie authors and aspiring writers in South Carolina!

The South Carolina State Library is pleased to be the first state library in the country to make the SELF-e digital self-publishing platform available to all public libraries in the state as well as our cardholders – for FREE! With BiblioBoard’s SELF-e uploading tools, you can upload your ebook - whether it is a family history or the next great American novel - and after a review process, it will be made available to local readers via the Indie South Carolina online catalog. eBooks published on the SELF-e platform may be reviewed by Library Journal (through a partnership with BiblioBoard and Library Journal) and included in Indie South Carolina. So what are you waiting for? Log in to SELF-e, and upload your book!

We are proud to also offer our SELF-e Indie South Carolina ebook Collection – a diverse collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry written by South Carolina authors.
