For Writers

Great  advice for authors from those of us who have been there, done that and are happy to share tips and advice about self publishing. Where do I find a good proofreader? How do I produce an e-book? What the heck is an ISBN? We share what worked and what didn’t  through our private Facebook page CHINUP.

CHINDI Members support each other through social media campaigns and we regularly run competitions and blog tours to promote our books. We have supported charities including Dyslexia Action, Words for the Wounded and Cancer UK. We attend events and also hold our own panel discussions and library talks.

CHINDI Members get together to discuss author events such as book launches, PR and marketing

For Readers

Discover new authors and your next read. Our books are listed by genre, or you can visit our author pages. There is something for everyone from exciting thrillers and steamy romance to kids books and a growing range of non-fiction such as books on meditation and living with Aspergers. 

Many of our authors have a dedicated page with links to their books so you can read about what motivated them and where their stories began.
New titles are continually being added to our book section You can also listen to some of our authors reading excerpts from their books on our YouTube channel.
