5310 Indie Highlights

Many writers with great books don’t get properly recognized by the traditional media because they are either self-published or with an independent publisher. We want to change that! We are proud to highlight books written by indie authors and other independent publishers on our website. This is part of our ongoing efforts to better represent and give a voice to people (and characters) who are part of groups that are often unrepresented and silenced. By giving a platform to those who don’t have one, we hope to bring more attention to often overlooked stories.

We have six categories: Strong Women, LGBTQ+, Characters with Disabilities, and BIPOC (characters who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). The “General” category is for books that don’t represent any minority group, but are still indie.
