Lambertville, NJ (PRWEB) April 25, 2007
Each year, The Eric Hoffer Book Award (formerly The Writers' Notes Book Award) seeks excellence in independent publishing. Entries come from academic, small, and micro presses, as well as self-published authors.
"We are very excited about using our international award program to honor the memory of one of America's greatest freethinkers," Christopher Klim said from his New Jersey office. "The Hoffer estate gave us their full blessing."
Klim is the senior editor of Writers' Notes, the international free resource tool at http://www.WritersNotes.com that facilitates the annual Hoffer Award. He is also the praised author of several novels (Jesus Lives in Trenton, The Winners Circle, etc.). His upcoming novel, Idiot! (fall 2007), has garnered high praise and competitive interest in Hollywood.
AWARDS SEEN AS ANSWER NOT RIVAL
"Due to the economics, many publishers have simply given up on worthy books," said Klim. "An increasing number fall to independent presses. These presses are filling a void, no longer rivaling the larger presses."
While there is little question that larger book releases have become generic, independent press books are typically viewed on only a regional basis. Writers' Notes helps to introduce new titles to the larger reading public.
THE 2007 ERIC HOFFER BOOK AWARD WINNERS
The Eric Hoffer Award for Books offers a grand prize of $1,500 annually and separate distinctions for the best academic, small, and micro press, the best self-published book, and various winners in eleven categories that cover the entire publishing spectrum.
