Voices from the IngramSpark Community Share #WhyIPublish

Tuesday, December 08, 2020

At IngramSpark, our mission is to support you through your indie publishing journey. Nothing is more inspiring than writers like you sharing your stories—the reason behind your book, your "why." In May 2020, we asked the writing community to share their #WhyIPublish stories, and the response was overwhelming. In today's post, we're sharing some inspiring stories and a breakdown of the data from our #WhyIPublish survey.

#WhyIPublish: How it Started

It all started with a single post on Instagram asking authors to share #WhyIPublish.

#WhyIPublish: The Stories

The responses on social media were overwhelming. We heard from diverse writers with different backgrounds and life experiences, all with a shared goal: publishing a book. Sharing their story.





#WhyIPublish: The Survey Results

In addition to sharing #WhyIPublish stories on social media, over 1700 self-published authors (and counting!) took our #WhyIPublish survey, giving us a deeper look into the experiences and history of our IngramSpark author community.
