For the first time in the 58 years of the New England Book Show, there is a category for especially for small publishers!
Self-publishers and publishers who release fewer than 10 books a year can submit to the following categories at the reduced fee of $20 for Bookbuilders of Boston members:
· Small/Self Publishers, Illustrated: Books of general interest.
· Small/Self Publishers, Non-Illustrated: Books of general interest.
· Small/Self Publishers, Covers: Books of general interest.
Of course, you can also submit to any of the other categories as well. In addition to print books, there are categories for eBooks, Apps, Digital Media, & Multimedia, and Book Covers & Jackets.
Winning books are selected for their design, quality of materials, and workmanship. The winning entries will be displayed at a festive dinner at Boston Symphony Hall on May 5, 2015 at 6pm.
Winners will be provided with a graphic that they can feature on their book cover, and will be invited to participate in the Educational Workshop "The Winners Circle" next Fall.
Selected winners will also have the opportunity to have an interview featured on the Bookbuilders’ blog.
Book submissions are open until January 30. Send in your books! Let’s show New England what independent publishers can do!
