— Our Mission —

To design and build a transformative publishing world for authors and readers

so that they may flourish in a community of creation and reading enjoyment. 


Let’s face it. Author earnings suck. Authors can’t make a living selling direct to readers. Publishing intermediators take a big chunk of the money out of each sale of the author’s book.

We’ve walked in the shoes of authors and know the challenges authors face to connect with readers who want to read their books and to make a living so they can continue to write the great books their readers want to read.

The Inara team has a deep background and years of experience in both traditional and new-era digital books publishing.

Inara brings authors a new paradigm and framework for engaging readers and getting paid for every page stream of their ebooks. 

Inara is a proud Cohort Member of the Hedera Boost startup program.
