Why Does Indie Platinum Require That Books Are Already Selling?

Why Does Indie Platinum Require That Books Are Already Selling?

Because the road to success is long and challenging, and not for slackers. The road to success is for people who are willing to put in the time, sweat, prayer and effort required to Tweet, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and otherwise network your book so that the whole world knows you’re here.

We want to represent these types of writers because your effort shows us that you’re serious about your work. It also shows us that you’ve got talent, because if you didn’t, no one would buy what you’ve created.

Just remember, Indie Platinum is a filtering system. There are plenty of “indie” books out there, but their range in quality may easily be as wide as the distance from the earth to the sun. We help avid readers take the anxiety out of choosing indie books and wondering about getting their money’s worth.

If they start with Indie Platinum, they’re getting a quality book.

Hello Indies! I am a former special education teacher of over 20 years, and now a full-time children's writer, researcher, and freelance editor. My newest picture book, The Oldest Student: How Mary Walker Learned to Read (Random House) debuted as the No. 1 Picture Book in Women's Biographies and Children's American History. It has since won the 2022 Texas Bluebonnet Award, the 2022 Rhode Island Children's Book Award, the 2021 SCBWI Crystal Kite, the 2022 Comstock Award, and the 2022 Ann Izard Award. It has received STARRED REVIEWS from Kirkus, Booklist, Publisher's Weekly and School Library Journal, and received a great review by The Wall Street Journal. My first picture book, Hammering for Freedom: The William Lewis Story (Lee and Low) debuted on September 24, 2018. It is a School Library Journal selection and received positive Kirkus and Horn Book reviews. I penned African Americans of Chattanooga: A History of Unsung Heroes, and I earned the 2014 SCBWI Letter of Merit for an unpublished multicultural novel. I am the author of several educational books for teens, and I occasionally review books for The New York Journal of Books. Thanks for visiting!
