READERS & FANS|enter a world of diversity that will introduce you to new perspectives | experience
Our goal at INCLUDAS Publishing is to deliver diverse materials of multiple genre options to readers of all ages and experiences. Diversity in books, especially the representation of characters or authors with limited mobility, is very slim, and rarely done well. Here, every story is going to be different because perspectives that are shared are not a “one size fits all.” The INCLUDAS platform is about having a welcoming and engaging space for everyone. We want to provide access to books that you can enjoy, support, and share!
Are you a huge fan of any of our authors and/or books, or INCLUDAS Publishing? Our doors are always open to an extra pair of hands, or feet, or wheels. Maybe you want to promote one of or books on your Youtube channel? Or simply wish to pass out some of our marketing swag? We can’t wait to team up! And, if you want to share other options or give us some suggestions, let us know. Do you identify with any of the options below? Let us know by filling out this form and let’s inclusion together!
Wondering how you can get an author to sign a book for you? Maybe you’re a superfan on a particular book and/or series and wish to get an autographed book or some special swag? We love to hear that! Coming soon, some books will offer autographed e-book options, please check out includas.com/books page for the most up to date information.
We will have special Book Gift Sets starting summer 2019, at includas.etsy.com, which you can order and request an autographed book by the author.
Please support your favorite author by reviewing a book, requesting it at your local library, and sharing on social media. Remember to tag INCLUDAS and use #includas so we can share all the love with our authors.
The best way to know what’s happening with your favorite author/book is to sign up for the INCLUDAS Newsletter.
We do the best we can to give access to our books, but if you need some extra assistance experiencing our books email us at support [@] includas.com. There are different options to access books, we strive to offer all of our books in digital, print, and audio options. Unfortunately we currently are not able to release the same book on all platforms at the same exact time. We do have plans to get all of our books in all accessible platforms as soon as possible. If you’re new to accessibility and want to know what goes into inclusive publishing, check out these resources:
AUTHOR & VIRTUAL VISITS|with lots of creativity and work, anything is possible | empower
If you want to give your school, bookstore, or library a disability diversity experience, let us know! Please let us know at least four months in advance that you’d like to book someone. Depending on the scope of the visit, duration of visit, and level of engagement, a customized plan will need to be in place. If an author visit may not be an option, we would be more than happy to donate something or provide a discount on our books for a special event or classroom. Please fill out this form and check out this author/illustrator visit guide sheet.
An author/illustrator will do 4 free virtual visits (for schools) per year for up to 20 minutes per session via a recorded video with a reading of selected book and answer questions submitted beforehand. You can also have a book club virtual meeting with the author or a session focused on writing/story development.
If you run a book club or a member ad want to have an author come to a meeting to answer questions or interact and autograph some books, please feel free to reach out! And if you want to have the author send pre-selected questions ahead of time for your members to discuss, that is also an option. An author can come for the whole meeting or after the discussion ends for some chats, photos, autographs, games, and drinks. If you’re more comfortable doing a virtual meeting with the author or a session focused on writing/story development, let us know that as well.
GIVEAWAYS & SALES|one book can be enough to change the world | share
We run giveaways and sale around new releases or special events. If you’re interested in running a giveaway on your blog or social media, please email marketing [@] includas.com. We love to support and team up with other people who promote diversity, and specifically, disability inclusion. Everyone needs some sort of help in one capacity or another, INCLUDAS offers donations in gifts to help promote diversity and inclusion. But we also need assistance as well to foster a culture of inclusion. Whether a book club, a non-profit, or a social media influencer, all inquiries are valued!
We run special sales during new book releases, but can also team up with other authors (who identify with a disability/have a character with a disability) to create diverse options for readers. Or if you want to do a giveaway aimed to promote disability in literature, we can offer some giveaway options as well. Or if you’re doing a disability related podcast or event that fits with our vision, we can do a special sale for that, or something else to help enrich your vision.
Are you a social influencer looking to help promote diversity and inclusion? We can offer special book promotion, and/or merchandise options for you to promote, as well as run special sales for you specifically. If you have more than 10,000 followers on any social media platform, we will send you the items for you to promote and review on all of your social media accounts, and a one week sale period for your followers. Please tag us and use #includas #diversityauthors #diversitybooks and any other hashtags you’d like for audience reach.
