2011 New Author Contest winners announced
Swyers Publishing announces the winners of the 2011 New Author Contest
Pam Swyers stated, “Our idea was to publish one book this year for a new unpublished author but after reading Nick and Sandra’s manuscripts we decided to publish both books. These are two very talented authors and we couldn't be happier to take them on board with Swyers Publishing.”
This year Swyers Publishing was proud to produce "Making Waves", a poetry anthology for previously unpublished poets. In order to continue our efforts to assist writers with the arduous task of getting their works published, we announced our next project for new authors in May 2011.
Swyers Publishing decided that one way to help authors was to have an annual event where they can submit their work and they would select one author (per year) to walk through the process of getting published (and pay all set-up fees involved).
Bill Swyers says, “As a small, indie publisher we do not have the ability to offer book advances, however, for anyone considering non-traditional routes, we will help you reach your goals. The winner of this contest will see their book formatted and printed and it will be listed on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble's online stores. We will promote this person on our websites and Facebook pages and offer advice on selling and marketing their book. Authors will receive 10 free copies at no cost.”
Bill and Pam Swyers started Swyers Publishing to assist in getting aspiring writers' books published and into the marketplace. Swyers Publishing is a small business that desires to grow while helping indie writers fulfill their goals.
