The announcer held up my award and called my name and I froze unceremoniously in place. Somebody shoved me or I’d be standing there still! Big stuff to first-time novelists, and second and third. These EVVY awards have real traction in the publishing world.
I’m writing on behalf of the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA), a nonprofit association of independent book publishers, authors, future authors and related publishing service providers. CIPA has been providing leadership in independent publishing since 1992.
The annual CIPA EVVY Book Awards have a 22-year history and are considered prestigious recognition in the independent publishing community. Entries come from around the US and the world. It’s a powerful honor for an author to receive a CIPA EVVY award!
Submissions for the 2016 CIPA EVVYs will begin in February 2016 and end on May 31, 2016.
