Calling all indie authors and publishers – including small and mid-size independent publishers, university presses, e-book publishers, and self-published authors. Enter the Next Generation Indie Book Awards™ now to have your book considered for cash prizes of $1,000, awards, exposure, and recognition as one of the top independently published books of the year!
The top 70 books will be reviewed by New York literary agent Marilyn Allen or her co-agents for possible representation or in areas such as distribution, foreign rights, and film rights. Ms. Allen has served as Senior Vice President of Harper Collins, directed sales and marketing teams for Simon & Schuster and Penguin Books, and worked with authors such as Stephen King, Ken Follett, and Barbara Kingsolver.
I recommend you read the rules carefully and follow them to the letter.
There is a fairly steep entry fee required for this contest. It's up to each author to decide whether the prizes are worth the investment.
Please do your homework before accepting any offer of representation by any literary agent. The old adage is true: a bad agent IS worse than no agent at all.
Also, it may be worth your while to check your contracts before entering. Find out if you do or don't retain rights for foreign translations and/or film rights. Some epublishers include those in their terms.
Good luck to those who enter!
