I Heart Indie Contest 2017 Entry

Welcome to the I Heart Indie contest! This is a competition hosted by the Las Vegas Romance Writers (LVRW) that gives indie authors the opportunity to measure their covers and back cover copy against those of other indie authors. The purpose of the contest is to give indie authors and their books more exposure to readers. The first round of judging will be conducted by book club members and the final winners will be chosen by agents who represent indie authors in their secondary rights sales.

Contest Rules

The contest is open to any book or novella that was independently published, or published via a small press. All the rules are here.
