Welcome authors

We believe that bookstores are essential to communities and we want to see them thrive. With bookstores at the core of what we do, we’re proud to offer two platforms that make it easy to link, share, and support.

Libro.fm allows readers to purchase audiobooks from their local, independent bookstores.

Our network of partner booksellers makes Libro.fm unique—we work with 7,000+ booksellers who recommend audiobooks, curate playlists, and handsell audiobooks in-store.

Link and Share your Audiobooks on Libro.fm

It’s easy to share your Libro.fm audiobook link(s) on your website and social media—just search your name and/or audiobook title, copy the url, and share. Remember, we report sales to The New York Times, so every audiobook sold through Libro.fm could help your audiobook hit their bestseller list.

Bookstore Link, built by Libro.fm, allows you to share a single link to a book and drive sales to ALL independent bookstores.

When you link to a book on Bookstore Link, the reader chooses their independent bookstore and is connected directly to that bookstore’s website to make their purchase. The best part? The bookstore keeps 100% of the book sale. Bookstore Link collects no money. We simply connect readers—and their book purchases—to their local bookstores.

Link and share your print books on Bookstore Link

You’ll drive web traffic and sales to independent bookstores and use your influence for good—not to mention, increase your book’s chance of becoming a bestseller.

Our stance on audiobook exclusives

While Libro.fm has over 150,000 audiobooks—and more than 99% of all The New York Times bestsellers—there are a few titles that are unavailable due to exclusive licenses granted by audiobook publishers and authors to Amazon’s Audible. We are fiercely independent and oppose Amazon’s efforts to prevent independent bookstores and libraries from providing certain audiobooks.

How do you prevent Amazon’s Audible from shutting out independent bookstores and libraries? First, understand the contract with your publisher: are they producing the audiobook or licensing it to another publisher? Either way, add language into your agreement that requires your audiobook to be sold through independent bookstores and made available through libraries. Second, if your publisher is planning to contract or license the audiobook version, ensure that your publisher puts language in their licensing agreement that prevents the audiobook publisher from selling your title exclusively to Amazon’s Audible.
