Through SELF-e, Library Journal is constantly searching for noteworthy indie ebooks. In addition to the international SELF-e Select Collections, we are taking it up a notch by presenting awards for highly distinguished ebooks.
Our annual contest, Library Journal’s Indie Ebook Awards, recognizes indie authors with the best ebooks in the genres of mystery, romance, science fiction, young adult and fantasy. Submissions are judged by Library Journal editors, along with librarians from all across America. Winners in each category receive $1,000 and all winners and honorable mentions receive a full LJ review, a promotional ad in the “Best Books” issue of the Library Journal print magazine and recognition at the American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting.
The 2017 Library Journal Indie Ebook Awards is currently accepting submissions until July 31, 2017.
The annual BCALA Self-Publishing Literary Awards honors the best self-published ebooks in fiction and poetry by an African American author in the U.S. Each genre winner receives $500.00, a formal recognition at the Black Caucus of ALA Literary Awards and a BCALA Literary Award Seal.
Find out about the winners of the 2017 awards.
