Just Read Local Authors

Are you an Arizona author?  Would you like for one of your titles to be featured in the Just Read Local Author Collection in the Greater Phoenix Digital Library? 

The first in Phoenix, the Just Read Local Author Collection is a curated collection of the best writing from Arizona authors. Works chosen for this collection will be offered through the Greater Phoenix Digital Library, one of the most popular digital collections in North America. Titles chosen will receive special promotion through the Phoenix Public Library's website and social media. Authors may also be featured in live online events hosted by the library.

Applications will be accepted September 1-30, 2020.
Authors will be notified if their title is selected.

Application Requirements:

  • Authors must have an address in Arizona. 

  • Titles must be available for sale in the Overdrive Marketplace.  If your eBook or eAudiobook is not available in this collection, contact us to ask Overdrive about adding it.  The Library cannot add titles to this collection that are not available in the Overdrive Marketplace. Please be aware that Overdrive cannot distribute titles if they are licensed exclusively to another distributor, such as Amazon. 

  • If not available in the Overdrive Marketplace, your title must be carried by Smashwords and you must enable a preview for evaluation. Authors with titles already in the Greater Phoenix Digital Library do not have to have their books in these platforms;  just let us know it's already there in the link field.  

  • Titles will be selected based on an evaluation by the library’s Collection Development staff. Authors may only submit 1 title.
