The Independent Bookstore

Shopping and Markets

The Independent Bookstore is the new kid on the block in a new and changing environment of booksellers. Publishing has changed in the global market with many authors becoming independent and desiring a control over their work and investments.

As an exclusive outlet chain for Shawline Publishing Group and other selected small publishing houses, The Independent Bookstore chain is designed around only selling and promoting independently published books by Australian and New Zealand authors that are difficult to find anywhere else or simply not available in other bookstores. It is not affiliated with any other distribution or publishing house and only supports fully independent authors and publishers to achieve a market presence both online and offline.
