Indie Author Hub supports independently published authors who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and provides a voice for them in the ever-changing publishing market. Latter-day Saint indie authors of all genres and markets are welcome.

Indie Author Hub is based in two member-restricted online groups. The first is a Yahoo Group, through which members communicate by email or online at the Yahoo Group's site. Once membership credentials and dues payments have been received and verified, new members will be approved at the Yahoo Group. Members can then join our private Facebook Group.

Membership dues are $20 per calendar year. Before your request to join is accepted, we must receive confirmation of PayPal payment to Please use the "send to friends" option, as we are a club of friends. Thank you.

Dues reminders go out each December, so watch for them and renew quickly. You don't want to miss out.
