Florida Author Project

The Florida Indie Author Project is almost here! Starting on Saturday, April 1, the local author contest will accept submissions of adult and young adult fiction to be recognized as the top indie-published eBooks in Florida.

Each book that is submitted to the contest must be:

  • Independently-published
  • In the category of adult or young adult fiction
  • Written by a Florida resident
  • Available in either ePUB (strongly encouraged) or PDF format

Winners in each category will receive $1,000 as well as:

  • Honors at the 2023 Indie Author Day reception
  • Opportunities to promote your book(s) at Florida public libraries
  • Inclusion in a full-page print spread in Library Journal
  • Opportunities to earn royalties through the IAP Select collection (ePUB format required for eligibility)

For indie-published authors, the contest is a fantastic prospect to elevate their careers and expand their readership. Along with the accolade of the award and its perks, being recognized by librarians creates credibility and visibility in the growing marketplace of digital content and indie-published books. Winning authors will reach hundreds if not thousands of new readers via the library, and can also leverage being an award-winning indie author for additional marketing opportunities.

The Florida Indie Author project will accept submissions from April 1, 2023 through May 31, 2023. Submit your work here!
