Showcasing new titles every month in libraries and selected bookstores across Britain – with only the public voting for the winners will launch on 1st June 2009.
Its aim is to discover new writing talent, give budding authors a better chance of being published and read, raise the profile of local libraries nationwide, help market independent publishers’ titles and provide the British public with a wider choice of new titles.
Only members of the public will vote for their favourite books on the ‘TPBP’ website or at their local library. There will be no judges involved in the selection of the winners.
This site will:
· list each month’s chosen titles including book covers and relevant information
· monitor which books are winning the public’s votes
· link to participating libraries’, publishers’ and booksellers’ websites.
Each month’s winner in the three categories: fiction, non-fiction and children’s
literature, will go forward as a finalist for The People’s Book Prize of the Year.
The awards will take place on the 30th July 2010.
We hope you will join us in making this exciting new venture a success for all!
