Independent booksellers can nominate books for the Indie Next List via NetGalley! NetGalley collects nominations weekly and submits them to the American Booksellers 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 book on NetGalley.
To nominate a book*, click the “Give Feedback” button from the book page or on your Shelf. Once you're on the Opinions page click Yes (as seen below) to nominate the book for the Indie Next List.
You will also need to share a text recommendation, which you can add as a Review, once you submit the Opinions page. The ABA advises, "Write conversationally, just as if you were talking about a favorite book 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 Box program. You can read more about this program on the ABA site, here.
