“It is always a treat to facilitate NIEA and witness the process of quite literally delving into the granular depth of printed matter we receive. Our jurors submerged into each individual title throughout every distinct category or genre, analyzing entries against their peers and the genre itself ultimately resulting in those now featured on our website. The recent pandemic years seem to have been a boon for authors as NIEA continues to remain incredibly competitive“.
