TOPIC: Book Awards
Is your book a winner?
Receiving a book award can be invaluable for building out your author/publisher platform and boosting book sales. However, It seems we are constantly peppered with pitches to submit our books for this or that awards program, and the fees (up to $250 or more) can add up.
It's no secret that organizations like Mom's Choice, IBPA, Eric Hopper, and Story Monsters make significant revenue from their awards programs. Even IPNE, though our submission fees are among the most reasonable. Presenter TBA.
After the brief topic presentation, members are invited to ask questions and share samples of their books and promotional material. Each attendee will be able to screen-share their website or images.
All IPNE regional group meetings are open. A discounted membership code for half-price membership or renewal for attendees will be announced during the event. Use #IPNEMember hashtag on social media for chance to win books and publishing services.
Although an RSVP is appreciated and is useful in the event of a change in schedule, it is not required. Invite a friend! Metro Boston Publishers coordinator is IPNE board member Charlotte Pierce.
