eSpotlight – Get a Taste of SELF-e Select!

What, you may ask, is SELF-e Select?

SELF-e Select is a really exciting program from Library Journal, that lets indie authors (authors who are publishing their books through non-traditional channels) get a chance to get national exposure!  Library Journal is one of the most important reviewing magazines in the library world -- libraries all around the country (and the world) trust LJ to give us good advice about book purchasing.  Any independently published author who submits their book to SELF-e for evaluation gets a chance to be reviewed by Library Journal. Those select titles are offered to library users like you to read through BiblioBoard.  Because Library Journal has given the book their seal of approval, we are confident that you will be reading a book of quality.
