Who We Are

Our goal here at Your Paper Quest is to better connect self-published authors with curious readers, while providing a unique and rewarding reading experience.

We aim to put an end to the stigma surrounding self-published writing, and through our community work to ensure that no outstanding story goes untold or unread.

We all deserve the best, why not continue this trend in ensuring that we read the best too?

Your Paper Quest Background

Meet The Team

Your Paper Quest Author

Ryan Haidar


I’m Ryan, and although I never read much growing up, I absolutely fell in love with it as I got older. The timeless stories, the infinite possibilities.

Your Paper Quest has been a passion project of mine ever since I created Ryanspaperadventures, an Instagram account borne out of my desire to document my reading. 

From there I had the fortune of meeting countless authors, while better understanding the types of books that readers enjoyed within the community. This became my inspiration for Your Paper Quest: The desire to help these self-published authors gain more exposure, while helping readers broaden their bookshelves. You belong, and I want to wholeheartedly thank you for supporting Your Paper Quest and helping make this dream become a reality. We can’t wait to continue this journey and uncover more hidden treasures, especially with you by our side.

Steven William Hannah

Chief Curator

I’m Steve, and I’ve been writing books since I could hold a pencil. A long journey through self-publishing has brought me into the world of indie authors, and opened up a world of fantastic stories that deserve to be shared.

My part in Your Paper Quest is to find the rare diamonds that elude the mainstream, which involves reading through an inordinate amount of books. It is immensely satisfying to pull the gems out of the mire and hold them up to the sun, and championing the self-published community is a task I take to with great enthusiasm. 
Great books need great readers, and our job is to bring them together.
