The National Indie Excellence Book Awards® contest is proudly sponsored by Smarketing LLC.
The competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the indie book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. They select award winners and finalists based on overall excellence of presentation in addition to the writing.
Out of respect for our judges’ time and professional status we do not require them to supply us with detailed comments on the books they review.
