Are you a book seller, library or school who loves unique Kiwi books?

Our authors bring you a range of wonderful books not published by the traditional houses. They are just as professional, captivating and marketable. Most have a very Kiwi flavour to appeal to your readers. 

These independent Kiwi authors write across many genres: from children’s books to adult fiction and non-fiction, and go to considerable lengths to publish their titles with the assistance of great editors, illustrators, and printers.

Indie Books offers you the opportunity to stock titles not readily available elsewhere.
