Andy Hunter

If you’ve been listening to Write-minded for a while, you might know we have indie fever, and we hope our show is catching that way because “indie” is key to a thriving book ecosystem—which is exactly at the center of this week’s show. We’re joined by founder and CEO Andy Hunter to talk about book culture, what “literary” means, and why we can’t trust Amazon when it comes to books—and what we as individuals can do to ensure books remain a vital part of our culture.


Andy Hunter is the Founder & CEO of, an initiative dedicated to increasing the e-commerce market share and sustainability of independent, local bookstores. He is also the co-creator and publisher of the websites Literary Hub, Crime Reads and Bookmarks, and co-founder and chairman of Electric Literature. His focus is helping books remain a vital part of our culture in the digital age.
