Hype, Advocacy, Community

We're a membership-based organization that strives to empower self-published authors, challenge industry norms, and reshape the perception of their work.


We believe in the power of hype and are passionate about generating excitement, energy, and enthusiasm for the works of self-published authors.

We celebrate their achievements, share their stories, and create a buzz that propels their voices to the forefront of the literary world.


We are dedicated to championing the interests and rights of self-published authors. 

LAIPA firmly believe that every author, regardless of their publishing path, deserves the chance to be heard and valued.

Building a vibrant and supportive community is central to our values.

Through networking events, workshops, and online platforms, we create opportunities for connection, collaboration, and mutual growth. We believe that together, we can create a powerful collective that uplifts and amplifies the voices of self-published authors.
