Nominations are now being accepted for the 2007 Independent Press Awards, which will recognize the best books of 2006 from independent, university, and other small presses, including self-publishers. Thare are 63 separate categories, from general fiction to short stories to something called “visionary fiction” (presumably because “story loaded with New Age cliches” didn’t sound quite as impressive), and nonfiction categories from history and science to coffee table books. There’s also two categories for the best print and online marketing campaigns, and ten regional awards for fiction and nonfiction. Nominations will be accepted for a $70 registration fee until April 2007; winners will be announced at BookExpo next summer.
