Author In Me emerged as Finalist for Small Press of the Year at British Book Awards


In a resounding testament to their commitment to amplifying underrepresented voices and fostering cultural diversity, Author In Me, a pioneering publishing powerhouse nestled in Southeast England, has emerged as a finalist for Small Press of the Year at the prestigious British Book Awards.

Affectionately known as the Nibbies, the British Book Awards illuminate the pinnacle of British publishing prowess across various categories. Ekta Bajaj and Monica Sood, the visionary founders behind Author In Me, joyously embrace the news of their nomination, attributing the honor to the tireless efforts, unwavering commitment, and boundless creativity of their team.

In the rich tapestry of the literary landscape, Author In Me stands as a vibrant thread, weaving tales spun by both fledgling and seasoned authors alike. Over the span of six years, this trailblazing platform has left an indelible mark by nurturing emerging talents, heralding diverse voices, and challenging traditional publishing paradigms.

“We are deeply humbled by our selection as a finalist for Small Press of the Year by the British Book Awards,” remarked Ekta Bajaj.

“This accolade underscores the passion and dedication of our team, alongside the remarkable authors and partners who entrust us with their visions. As pioneers of innovation, we take pride in shaping the trajectory of publishing and igniting inspiration.”

Fueled by an unwavering commitment to excellence and inclusivity, Author In Me’s catalogue unfurls a tapestry of narratives spanning a myriad of genres— from fiction and non-fiction to poetry and the untamed creativity of young authors. At its core, the company thrives on providing a platform for voices that have long been marginalized, crafting tales that resonate across borders.
