Balcones Fiction Prize: Calling all Publishers

The Balcones Fiction Prize has thus far received very few books from the top 5 largest publishers – actually zero, I think. I do hope we receive some books from them (Random House, etc.). But if we don’t, it means this is a great opportunity for lesser-known writers to compete for a national book award. Please have your nomination postmarked by January 31.
