Hello there. Welcome to our store, and thanks for dropping by. Please allow us to introduce ourselves – we are Libiro: an eBook store devoted to selling nothing but indie books by indie authors. Our aim is to be the No.1 place to shop if you want to buy self-published literature.
Let’s say hello to the founders of Libiro.com:
Ben Galley – As an indie author in his own right, Ben is a zealous advocate of self-publishing, providing advice and services via his popular website Shelf Help. Ben is also a Services Watchdog for the Alliance of Independent Authors. He is also the author of the epic Emaneska Series, and in his spare time, enjoys a spot of climbing, scuba diving, and is a keen keeper of rats.
Teague Fullick – Teague’s background is in web development and graphic design, and has worked as a business development manager for one of the UK’s biggest blue chip companies. You can usually find Teague cycling around the South Downs, braving the freezing waters of the English Channel, or playing football.
The main reason is that indie authors are exciting. The good thing about publishing yourself is that you’re not tied down to market trends or a publisher’s business plan. Indie authors can write what they want, when they want. The result? A different breed of writing. A pedigree we’re proud to represent.
Here’s another reason for you: Indie authors can sometimes have trouble standing out on huge stores like Amazon, and constantly work hard to make sure their books are discovered. Here at Libiro, we want to make sure that indies have the best chance of being found, read, and enjoyed.
Need another reason? Well, as authors work hard, we also want to make sure that they keep working. As an indie store, we’re very proud to say that we offer a great 80% royalty on every book sold. Something that we can’t do with traditionally-published books. This means it’s good for the author, good for us, and good for you too.
