Enter: NOW!

We're getting down to the deadline wire on entering books in this year's ITW Thriller Awards. To be eligible, books must be in the judges' hands on or before 12/1/2007, so it's time to move.

The contest has three categories:

BEST PAPERBACK ORIGINAL (paper)

ELIGIBLE are books first published in English in calendar year 2007 by an ITW recognized publisher. (If your company is not on the list, email vkhinze@aol.com and we'll walk you through the process.)

WHO CAN NOMINATE A BOOK?

Anyone. (The majority are entered by Editors, Agents or Publicists. Author entries are welcome, too.)

HOW MANY BOOKS CAN BE NOMINATED?

There is no limit.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

There is no entry fee.

WHAT MUST I DO?

Email Vicki Hinze (vkhinze@aol.com) and request an entry form for a specific category (or, if entering multiple books, any/all categories). Vicki will send you the entry form, you complete it and send the books to the judges.

WHEN IS THE DEADLINE?

Novels must be in the judges' hands on or before December 1, 2007.
