While we have room, in the Author Showcase, for 60 indie authors, we can only accommodate 10 in each of six specified genres. These include: Historical Fiction, Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Horror/Paranormal, Thriller/Suspense and Young Adult. We are looking for high quality writing, editing and formatting that represents the best work Indie Authors are producing. We also are exclusively promoting published long-form works of fiction. (Please do not send us unpublished works, books not available for sale at Amazon.com (or ebooks not available for sale at both Amazon.com and Smashwords.com), works without either an ISBN number or an ASIN number, short stories or short story anthologies. Completing and submitting this sign-up form assures you that we will seriously consider your book for inclusion in the showcase. However, it does not guarantee you a place.
Please understand that we have limited time and resources available for screening submissions. Some of the information requested on the form is designed to guide us in our decision making.
To improve your chances of success, we recommend that you do the following:
- Submit only what you consider to be your best work
- Submit your book under as many genre headings as you believe appropriate, but no more than three.
- Send us writing samples only from your final, published manuscript (not from a proof.)
- Include details about any writing awards you and/or your book have received
Finally, complete your submission as soon as possible and provide us with as much detailed, verifiable information as you can about the size of your online social-media platform. All other factors being equal, we will consider these last two items in making our final determinations.
