Last year, Lee Goldberg and Max Allan Collins formed the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers (IAMTW). This year, the organization is giving out its first Scribe Awards for the best novels in this field.
If you’re a tie-in writer, you should check this out. I joined last year, just to support the organization and its aims. I also submitted books in two of the Scribes categories this year. You don’t have to join to join to take part in the free mailing list though. If you’re a tie-in writer who might be interested, contact me, and I’ll wrangle you an invitation.
You also don’t have to be a member of the IAMTW to submit novels for the Scribes (although it’s free if you are). The organization needs more submissions, especially in certain categories, as you can see from the latest list of entries. If you have such a book, or know someone who does, please get involved. Thanks!
