How can independent booksellers nominate titles for the Indie Next List?


Independent booksellers can nominate books for the Indie Next List via NetGalley!
NetGalley collects nominations weekly, and submit them to the American Bookseller Association (ABA) for consideration.


To access this feature you need to be registered as a Bookseller (in the US) and be approved or invited to view a title on NetGalley.

To nominate a title, go to the Feedback section (either on your Shelf or on the Title Details page) and click Yes (as seen below) to nominate the title for the Indie Next List.


You will also need to share a text recommendation, which you can add as a Review. The ABA advises, "Write conversationally, just as if you were talking about a favorite title with a customer in the store." Click here for the ABA's full list of nominating tips and deadlines.

Don't forget, booksellers who work at an ABA member store can also sign up for the exclusive Digital White Box program. You can read more about this program on the ABA site, here
