Indie Next List Nominations

    There are three ways for member booksellers to nominate titles to the Indie Next List:

    1. Complete the form on this page.
    2. On Edelweiss, go to the book page, click on "Your Review," and select "Submit to Indie Next."
    3. On NetGalley, click the green “Title Feedback” button for any title in your account.

    When nominating for the quarterly Kids’ Indie Next List, please note these publication date parameters:

    • Spring List: Titles published between February 1 and April 30
    • Summer List: Titles published between May 1 and July 31
    • Autumn List: Titles published between August 1 and October 31
    • Winter List: Titles published between November 1 and January 31

    Nomination Form

    Booksellers can submit up to six nominations at a time, and may resubmit the form. Tips:

    • Write conversationally, just as if you were talking about a favorite title with a customer in the store.
    • Don't be intimidated by the quotes you see in the final Indie Next List. They've all been edited! (We'll take care of the grammar and punctuation....)
    • You might already have a lot of nominations on hand—send in what's on the staff pick cards you've written up, or send in your staff picks from your newsletter or website.
    • All subject categories are welcome - fiction and non-fiction, hardover and paperback.
    • Help remind other staff members in your store to submit too. Post this Next List Nomination Shelftalker wherever you keep your ARCs.

    Thank you!
