#Contest for Authors #BaBB

For 10 days, Badass Book Society is running their quarterly contest to give a 1-year membership to a Badass Author. This also serves to announce two new programs they will be implementing; inclusion in the quarterly Badass Sampler Anthologies and  a new book-specific audio/visual short ‘podcast’ that will help promote each book the author has and will be shared and marketed to national media programmers.

During the running time of the contest, the normal application process is suspended and anyone is eligible for membership. Also, anyone who wants to purchase a membership now is automatically entered in the drawing to have their next year’s membership fee waived. (If you chose to purchase membership now and be entered in the drawing for a 2-for-1 opportunity, do so on the Google Form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1M9fDqfk5S6XpUGvuRIKpsm8CsKZiu-9c9qJ-QxiJaaQ/viewform )

Nominate yourself or your favorite Indie Author for a chance to win a 1-year membership to Badass Book Society.

You might have heard that there is a new author/reader/professional organization in the works. Badass Book Society hopes to promote professionalism in the indie and small press arena, improving reader experience and the quality of books available. One step in this process is having beta readers to help authors release the best manuscript that they can. Additional calls for critique partners, as well as preferred publishing professionals will come in the near future.
