Indie Author Project 2022
March 28, 2022 • Features & News

The CT Center for the Book is pleased to join Library Journal and Biblioboard in the announcement of a local author contest that will accept submissions of adult and young adult fiction, to be recognized as the top indie-published eBooks in Connecticut.

Winners in each category will receive $1,000 as well as:

  • Honors at the 2022 Indie Author Day Reception
  • Opportunities to promote the winning title at Connecticut public libraries
  • Inclusion in a full-page spread in Library Journal, one of America’s oldest and most renowned trade publications for library news
  • Opportunities earn royalties through the IAP Select collection (ePUB format required for eligibility)

For indie-published authors, the contest is a fantastic prospect to elevate their careers and expand their readership. Along with the accolade of the award and its perks, being recognized by librarians creates credibility and visibility in the growing marketplace of digital content and indie-published books. Winning authors will reach hundreds if not thousands of new readers via the library, and can also leverage being an award-winning indie author for additional marketing opportunities.
