Enter Your Original Work for the Chance to Win “Best Indie-Published Book in Nevada”

Top Prize Includes $1,000 + Promotional Opportunities

The Nevada Author Project is back this spring! We are looking for local authors to enter their original work(s) of adult and/or young adult fiction for a chance to be recognized as the top indie-published eBook in Nevada. Winning authors will reach hundreds, if not thousands, of new readers, and can leverage being an award-winning indie author for additional marketing opportunities. This contest is a fantastic way to elevate your writing career and expand your readership. 

For inspiration, our upcoming writers' events, and helpful online resources, please visit The Writers' Room.
And to view part winnings submissions and other indie local authors, please visit our collection on Biblioboard.
To enter, please submit your work between April 1 - May 31, 2023, through the Biblioboard submission page.
