Gone are the days when The New York Times Best Seller List provided readers all they needed to know about the best books to read. Many of the nation's top authors have opted out of restrictive publisher's contracts and have chosen to bring their work to market as independent publishers. More than 1.2 million books are being independently published each year, and savvy authors are realizing that in a fast-changing marketplace, independent publishing offers the flexibility required to succeed.

Entry fee is now just $75 to enter a National category and another $55 if you choose to enter the Regional or E-Book contests. All entrants are considered for the Outstanding Books of the Year Awards at no extra charge.
