What is the Indie Author Project? The Indie Author Project (IAP) is a year-round, discovery program where indie authors can make their eBooks available through the library. Authors who are looking to promote their work and increase readership and exposure can submit their work to IAP to be featured in the statewide Indie Connecticut Collection, with the potential for inclusion in the IAP Select collections available at participating libraries all across the U.S. and Canada.
