Indie authors can now support independent bookstores across the US through their Book Bubbles by adding an IndieBound buy link. Simply go to the Book Info page of your book on your Bublish Dashboard and check IndieBound as one of your purchase channels. Once you submit an IndieBound buy-link request, the link will be added to your Book Bubbles for that book within 24 hours. If you’re not sure whether you book is available through IndieBound, visit the site and search for your title. All of Bublish’s books in distribution are available through IndieBound.
The outcome of “ongoing collaborations between the independent bookstore members of the American Booksellers Association, IndieBound.org is all about independent bookstores and the power of “local first” shopping. Locally owned independent businesses pump money back into the their communities by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases. That means more money for sound schools, green parks, strong police and fire departments, and smooth roads, all in your neighborhood.
Independent bookstores have always occupied a special place in communities. Through IndieBound—and the Indie Next List flyers and Indie Bestseller Lists—readers find trusted bookseller curated reading options, newly discovered writers, and a real choice for buying.
IndieBound allows indie booksellers to communicate this vital role they play in their local economies and communities. It allows authors to show their dedication to indies nationwide, easily done through linking to thousands of indie bookstores through IndieBound.org. And it allows consumers to feel that their actions are a part of a larger picture—to know that their choices make a difference and that others are working toward the same goals.”
