2009 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist: MAGGIE: the dog who changed my life

I know my blog usually goes to the dogs, but today's post is for all of you self-published authors out there. I encourage you to submit your books to the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. I am so honored and excited to share that my book, MAGGIE: the dog who changed my life, is a finalist in this year's 2009 Next Generation Indie Book Awards!

Now is the time to think about entering your book for the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. The Finalists and Winners of the Next Generation Indie Book Awards will be given awards including $1,000 in cash for both the best Fiction and Non-Fiction Books, $500 in cash awarded to the second best Fiction and Non-Fiction Books, and $250 in cash for the third best Fiction and Non-Fiction Books. The Best Cover Design Book entry is also awarded $250. A Gold Medal is awarded to the winner of each of the 60 categories, and Finalist Certificates will be awarded to up to 10 finalists in each of the 60 categories.

A wonderful advantage of being a winner or finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards is placement in their catalog which is distributed to book buyers and media, which gives great exposure to winners and finalists in each category. The list of 2009 winners and finalists will be available at www.IndieBookAwards.com in early June. Please also visit www.IndieBookAwards.com for full details and advantages of entering your book for 2010.

I think the biggest bonus is that the top 60 books will be reviewed by a New York literary agent for possible representation in "areas such as distribution, foreign rights, film rights, and other rights."

Submit your books for 2010 by March 10, 2010 and good luck!
