About Us / 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. 

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, the occasional contest, and reviews of great indie books.

Want to sport the Indie Elite badge on your social media sites, or even your book? Have us review your book and if it obtains at least four stars, you'll be granted membership! Please be aware, formatting and editing are taken into account as well as story and characters. If a book is poorly formatted, edited, or sports an awful cover, that will count against it. Why? Because the Indie Elite authors understand that the complete package counts. Your book deserves to be the best it can be and that means great editing, formatting, and a great cover as well. 

To apply, you'll need to submit an ePub file (or Smashwords coupon) of your book for review. To begin the process, please fill out the form below. Authors who are completely independently published or published with a small press are invited to apply.
