Indie Author Project: 2019 Regional Contest Winners

Out of this year’s winners, one overall Indie Author of the Year will be chosen by a panel of industry experts. Along with the prizes that come with their regional award, this Indie Author of the Year will also receive an additional $1,000, professional audiobook production, and a myriad of marketing and promotional opportunities throughout the year.

This year’s second annual Indie Author Project regional contests ran in 13 states and one Canadian province and fielded thousands of submissions from authors of all types. In partnership with literary organizations and libraries across North America, these contests reflect an ongoing and expanding effort to encourage strong relationships between indie authors, public libraries, and readers. Out of all of the submissions, these winning titles reflect the best indie-published eBooks each region has to offer in adult and young adult fiction. These books— and hundreds of other top indie titles— are available with unlimited, multi-user access in the Indie Author Project Select collections on BiblioBoard Library, DPLA Exchange, OverDrive, and more.
