At Kindred Readers® (KR), we believe that self-published authors are more likely to succeed if they have a creative team to support their writing and marketing efforts. To encourage our Author members to take advantage of the expertise available through service providers such as yourself, Kindred Readers maintains a Service Provider Directory. We do not charge service providers any fees or commissions to create a profile in our Directory, but you must agree to a few conditions in exchange for the free listing.


  • Exclusive discount for KR Author members: You must offer KR Author members an exclusive discount of at least 20% off your standard rates. In exchange, we will provide your clients a 20% discount on a new Kindred Readers membership. You'll receive details in our welcome letter when your profile has been approved for publication.
  • Keep your profile up-to-date: You must update your listing every six months or when prompted to ensure all information is accurate.
  • KR Author members may review their experience of working with you: You must agree to allow KR Author members who have worked with you to rate and comment on their experience. You will have the opportunity to respond to each review if you wish, but we limit this to one cycle of review/response.

Please note that your listing must be approved prior to publication and that our approval of your listing does not imply any endorsement or affiliation with you or your business. All content and your participation in Kindred Readers is subject to our Terms of Service and Member Guidelines.

You must accept these provisions to create a profile in our Service Provider Directory.
