We believe that the best way to help an indie author make their book a success is to get them access to people who can make a difference.

The top winners of the IndieReader Discovery Awards will be sent to Dystel, Goderich and Bourret Literary Management to be considered for representation. Why is that such a big deal? A literary agent may get 5,000 query letters a year. Only a fraction of these will lead to the agent requesting the manuscript.

In addition, judges for the IRDAs include PR professionals, journalists and media people, publishers, and book reviewers (you can find the full list by clicking “The Judges” link on the top of the previous page).

Because while all the gold foil stars, cash prizes, trophies and awards ceremonies might be fun, the reality is that, in the end, they’ll do little to make your book a success.
