Book Contest marks outstanding independent publishing


The 4th Annual National Indie Excellence Awards (NIEA) announces a call for submissions for their book competition. Excellence in independent publishing is the focus.

The award program is coordinated by Beverly Hills, California based book shepherd Ellen Reid, who says,

“The goal is to recognize excellence in independent- and self-published books, a rapidly growing segment of a publishing industry that is going through constant growth and transformation.”

Books published from 2007 to the present by self-published authors, small press, and independent publishers can be submitted for consideration in categories of their choice. Winners and finalists will be announced nationally in mid May 2009.

Winners and finalists are promised extensive media coverage, and top award recipients are eligible to win prizes valued in excess of $12,000. Prizes include sessions with outstanding media and PR consultants, marketing experts, and others in a position to assist authors and publishers in creating greater success with their books.

Last years’ grand prize winner was the book Global Warming Is Good for Business: How Savvy Entrepreneurs, Large Corporations, and Others are Making Money While Saving the Planet by Kimberley B. Keilbach.
