A Home for Independent Authors
HOME - Welcome, or ¡Bienvenidos!
EgretBooks.com is a hybrid publisher that helps indie writers publish and promote books. We began in early 2012, pursuing the path of becoming a collective of respected independent authors with published books.
Our primary focus is promoting good writing by indie authors. A major component of this focus is the Facebook group Mexico Writers, with more than one hundred members whose work is grounded in Mexico or who write while living in Mexico. Many have years of successful publishing experience and international acclaim, while others are emerging writers. The FB group provides a way for the public to follow members, and the weekly newsletter from EgretBooks.com features "news you can use" based on experiences of members.
One part of EgretBooks.com specializes in publishing eBooks based on previously-published literary fiction of high quality. We also publish eBook anthologies of published work by indie authors as a way to help promote their work. The second part, through the affiliated imprint of AdelanteBooks.com, provides professional services for Kindle chapbooks and self-published eBooks.
If you want help in publishing and promoting a book, maybe we can help you. To get started just go the "Queries" page.
