Whether fiction or non-fiction, biography or self-help, a first-time
novelist or seasoned classic, expose readers to talent on the page. This annual award recognizes outstanding achievements in the hand-selling of HarperCollins titles with
three prizes of $500 cash
for the season’s top handsellers.
The award is open to
booksellers at independent stores before the submissions deadline.
Staff no longer need a nomination from their managers and can feel free to
email sales representatives directly.
To nominate a
staff member, send an email to your sales representative noting the bookseller's name, the title they have championed and how they have done so, the number of copies they have sold, and the name and location of your bookstore.
Please note: 2012 winners are not eligible for the prize
in 2013, nor is the store they represented.
The winner will be
selected and awarded their cash prize within 30 days of the entry deadline.
