Our online bookshop The Terrian Library was established during the summer of 2021 as part of its parent website Terrian Publishing. Times are changing and with it our business; today, The Terrian Library is the main focus of the business


What's in the library? The Terrian Library is primarily an indie bookshop. The shop will sell works of just about every genre of both fiction and non-fiction literature created by independent authors or publishers across the globe, provided that the works meet all the criteria needed for us to make them a part of our collection world indie literature. 

What makes this online bookshop unique is that no matter the format, it only takes 10% of gains from book sales for merchant fees, otherwise known as a "retailer's discount" when average retail discounts from most main retailers remain at about 35%. This gives the real advantage to the indie authors who stand to gain more from selling their work in this indie bookshop than they would if they were to sell elsewhere.


Here, at The Terrian Library, supporting indies in the vast domain of English literature is what we're really all about.

Although our merchant fees do vary in the case of physical books sold by The Terrian Library in accordance with our charitable Books for the Earth program, all authors stand to receive 90% of their well-earned royalties from every eBook sold. To read more about this, please contact out administrative staff via our Contact web page.

If you're an independent, self-published author with creative work written in English that you'd like to sell in our Terrian Library, or the owner of an independent publishing company with indie works to sell, please contact our library administrators and a submission form will be sent to you within due time.

To inquire more on the subject, please contact our Terrian Library administrators via this website as well.

Within The Terrian Library, each physical copy of a book sold is linked to a non-profit environmental organization that was selected among our list. Those organizations, for the sake of our Books For The Earth program, are known as our partners. 

An amount ranging from 1$ CAD or more per physical book sold by The Terrian Library is taken from our Library's merchant fee and is donated to the book's associated partner.


Through our partners, we have the assurance that some part of our environment is maintained or preserved with every physical book sold in our library. Meanwhile, freshwater and woodland resources are preserved and carbon emissions are reduced in the production and sale of all eBooks due to the lack of physical resources used to create them.

To view what type of contributions our authors are making to help sustain and regreen our planet, view their novels' information section.

 Our mission is:​

  • To provide good-quality services to indies in the literature businesses at affordable, competitive prices, and 

  • To help sustain our planet with every book sold. 

Here at The Terrian Library, we work both for indies from the world of English literature, and for our planet.
