I just bit the bullet and applied for the NIEA – National Indie Excellence Awards – for 2009. I was a finalist in 2008 for the Next Generation Awards so I figured why not go for it this year? Since my book was published through an “indie” book publisher, I should fit right in! They certainly offer a lot of categories to enter, unlike some book awards which are fairly stitled in their choices. I think I counted over 80 categories!
So I entered in two of them: Self Help and Current Affairs: Entertainment.
The deadline is March 31st and I will know if I made the final cut by May 1st. Wish me luck. Better yet, go buy another copy of Dealing with Divas for a friend!
