What We're About & How To Apply

The Indie Elite is a special organization of independent authors (both with small publishers, and some who are completely independent) who have written outstanding novels. Each member of the Indie Elite has been recognized by critics or their peers, and have achieved respectable sales and/or earned awards or been finalists in recognized contests. Authors belonging to IE have been brought in by special invite or have applied and met the standards of excellence.

If you're looking for a great novel by an independent author then you've come to the right place. Our members currently write in the following genres: young adult, paranormal romance, mystery, thriller, and middle grade. On this site you'll find updates on novels written by the Indie Elite authors, press releases, author appearances, reviews of the novels written by the Indie Elite, and an occasional contest.

New members are welcome! To apply fill out the form below. You're more than welcome to nominate an author for Indie Elite membership, they just have to be aware of the nomination and willing to be a member. Check out the tabs above to learn more about our current members. Members must not only have an excellent book either completely independently published or published with a small press, but also need to contribute blog posts once every two months.
