IBPA IS A BEST-KEPT SECRET among some IN THE WRITING AND PUBLISHING INDUSTRY
International Book Publishing Association does a great job with connecting members to the publishing industry. IBPA members receive full access to IBPA's members-only discussion forums, where they can share experiences while offering and receiving advice and helpful information. Another benefit IBPA offers is a subscription to IBPA Independent - a bi-monthly magazine filled with practical advice, targeted annual conference, vendor discounts, free webinars, and more!
More than 3,700 independent-minded book professionals from across the United States have discovered the value of IBPA. This collaboration allows and welcomes different opinions, perspectives and viewpoints on a range of subjects and interests, which may prove valuable to many authors.
IBPA's MISSION STATEMENT
"To lead and serve the independent publishing community through advocacy, education, and tools for success."
"A world where every independent publisher has the access, knowledge, and tools needed to professionally engage in all aspects of an inclusive publishing industry."
In addition to educational opportunities being made available, the association offers valuable resources that offer discounts for book reviews, distribution, design and PR & marketing services. Some other benefits that most indie authors may have never considered is the opportunity to enter contest and book award programs. I especially like that I am able to receive 15% off of ISBN purchases at Bowker, free POD set-up & revisions at IngramSpark and discounts on translation and editorial services. Some of the amazing benefits and vendors include:
