Have you published a novel in either the adult or young adult genres?
Would you like to win $1000, plus a full-page spread in Library Journal and additional marketing perks?
The Indie Author Project (IAP) is a publishing community that aims to connect authors with libraries and readers.Not only has IAP assisted in getting more than 12,000 indie authors into their local libraries, but they also run an annual contest aimed at discovering and promoting the best independently published fiction.
Submissions are now open, with the contest organized into 18 regions across North America. The deadline to enter is May 31, 2022.
Note: There is no entry fee to submit your book. However, please satisfy yourself that you are happy with the terms and conditions before entering. This contest is not endorsed by BAIPA.
To enter, your book needs to be:
- indie published
- either adult fiction, or young adult fiction
- available in ePUB or PDF format
…and you need to be resident in one of the regions taking part.
The judges will evaluate your book for plot, pacing, characters, sensitivity, grammar, and general appeal.
To get a better idea of what it takes to produce a winning novel, check out previous national winners including All The Broken People by Amy Rivers (psychological thriller) and The Seclusion by Jacqui Castle (dystopian science fiction).
Last year’s California regional winners included a family saga and a YA novel.
Whether or not your book is eligible to enter this current contest, you might also like to save the date for another IAP program, Indie Author Day, coming November 4-5, 2022.
