Questioning traditional notions of masculinity, Leftah's novel offers a rare glimpse of gay love in the Arab world.

Deadline for entry is February 10, 2023.

The Next Generation Indie Book Awards is the largest international awards program for indie authors and independent publishers and the only book awards program of its kind offering more monetary prizes, more awards, more recognition and more exposure including exposure to a leading Literary Agent for possible representation in areas such as distribution, foreign rights, film rights, and other rights.

Presented by Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group (IBPPG) in conjunction with Marilyn Allen of Allen O'Shea Literary Agency, the Next Generation Indie Book Awards was established to recognize and honor the top independently published books of the year. IBPPG was formed to provide support and recognition for the independent book publishing profession and we encourage all independent authors and publishers to enter their books in the 2023 Next Generation Indie Book Awards so that they too can earn recognition and receive other benefits from having an award-winning book.

Awards given to the Finalists and Winners of the 2023 Next Generation Indie Book Awards are:

- $1,500 cash prize and trophy awarded to the best Fiction Book
- $1,500 cash prize and trophy awarded to the best Non-Fiction Book

- All Winners will be listed in the 2023 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Catalog, which will be distributed to thousands of book buyers, media, and others
- The opportunity to display Finalist or Winner gold award stickers on your book.
- Other benefits of an award-winning book (such as potential increased revenue).

PLUS, the top 80 books will be sent to be reviewed by New York literary agent Marilyn Allen of Allen O'Shea Literary Agency or one of Ms. Allen's co-agents for possible representation in areas that could generate even more revenue for your book (unless an entrant prefers not to have their book forwarded to the agent). Ms. Allen has over 25 years of sales and marketing experience, including serving as Senior Vice President, Associate Publisher, and Director of Marketing for Harper Collins and directing sales and marketing teams for Simon & Schuster, Penguin Books and Avon Books. Ms. Allen has had the pleasure of working with many best-selling authors including Stephen King, Ken Follett, Barbara Kingsolver, John Gray, Mary Higgins Clark, and many more.

"Independently-published books have become a major source for quality fiction and non-fiction, but often go unrecognized by the mainstream publishing industry," notes Marilyn Allen. "Finally, an award program has been created to recognize talented authors from this important segment of our industry. Our agency represents over 100 authors and we're always looking for new talent, so it is a great pleasure to be part of this program. We look forward to reviewing the works of the 80 best candidates and helping these authors gain the recognition they deserve."

All Finalists and Winners will be notified by late May, 2022.

After reading Gideon Rachman's interview published June 12, 2022, on Mexico City's Reforma newspaper, I rushed to order The Age of the Strongman -- I received my copy on Wednesday, June 15. To my dismay, I found an error: the name of Mexico's president is Andrés MManuel López Obrador, not Andrés Miguel López Obrador, and his acronym is AMLO (as in JFK and FDR), not Amlo. I agree with Rachman's assessment of AMLO (and of others), but I'm afraid that the error may undermine Rachman's credentials, at least in Mexico. I call this poor editorship (if such word exists) and wonder whether this error also appears on the British edition. Please, please, have this error corrected --the book is important (very much so) insightful.
