Write, edit, and format your own book 

This simple tool lets authors — aspiring and otherwise — create their own print-ready eBooks. Once you’ve created your file, you can submit your book to the Indie Author Project for others to enjoy, or use the file to send to traditional publishers.

Indie Author Project

This eBook platform features self-published authors from across North America, and we’ve highlighted our local authors from Calgary and surrounding area. Writers can submit their eBook file from Pressbooks to the Indie Author Project, and readers have simultaneous access to all titles, so there’s never a wait for your next read!

eContent for Libraries

Major multinational publishers are placing restrictions on digital titles, and public libraries face excessively high prices and restrictive purchasing models for both digital audiobooks and eBooks. Libraries lend digital copies just like physical books — on a one-to-one basis — but the cost for digital copies is exponentially higher. This means you may find yourself waiting a very long time to borrow digital titles.
