Calling all independent authors and publishers!
The 14th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards, conducted to honor the year's best independently published titles, are now accepting entries for books with 2009 or 2010 copyrights or released in 2009 and early 2010. The annual contest is presented by Jenkins Group and their book marketing website, IndependentPublisher.com, headquartered in Traverse City, Michigan.
The "IPPY" Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to the thousands of exemplary independent, university, and self-published titles published each year. Since the inaugural contest over 3,500 books have received awards, with all the recognition, credibility, and increased sales that a book award can bring. Independent spirit and expertise comes from publishers of all sizes and budgets, and books are judged with that in mind.
This year's contest is open to books copyrighted 2009 or 2010, or that were released in 2009 or early 2010. National category early-bird entry fee is $75; Regional category can be added for $45; Outstanding Books of the Year consideration at no extra charge. Final deadline is March 20, 2010.
