Your membership matters.
Why? IBPA membership helps strengthen the influence and reach of the independent publishing profession, giving a voice to your concerns across the nation. At the same time, IBPA provides you with opportunities to learn, network, market your books, and grow your business, thereby boosting your success and raising the overall profession of independent publishing to new heights.
As of December 2016, IBPA is pleased to offer new Member Types that better represent our diverse membership base. These types are:
- Future Publisher ($99 per year): Persons -- student or otherwise -- considering or preparing to publish their own or other people’s work. Future Publishers may not serve on committees, may not vote, and may not serve on the Board of Directors. (A Future Publisher Member Type can be held for up to four years.)
- Author Publisher ($129 per year): Persons exclusively publishing their own work, e.g., self-published authors and authors working with hybrid publishers.
- Independent Publisher (varied annual fees below): Persons or organizations involved in publishing other people’s work using a traditional, royalty-based publishing model and/or an author-subsidized publishing model. (In addition to publishing other people's work, an Independent Publisher might also be publishing his or her own work.)
