June 4, 2020 From the Novelists, Inc. (NINC) Board of Directors:

Along with the rest of the world, NINC's Board has watched the unfolding of the troubling events of the past ten days with grief and horror. We recognize that many of our members are experiencing significant pain and anguish, and we stand with you. We support the right to protest and denounce violence and prejudice, and we are grateful for those in our organization who are devoting time and energy to this essential and world-changing work.

NINC's policy of embracing diversity and inclusion remains steadfast. To reiterate our official statement: no author will ever be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race, identification, religious/spiritual beliefs if any, ability, nationality, or age. It is our desire and goal to make sure that every author member feels welcomed and accepted and heard.

Welcome to Novelists, Inc. (NINC), the professional network for career novelists.

Like all great stories, ours started at a moment of change — when five professional authors banded together with one clear mission in mind: address the needs of career novelists.

Networking is how we began 30 years ago, and it is how our organization of more than 1000 multi-published writers continues to thrive today.

When you join NINC, you will:

  • connect with a global community of authors committed to the business of writing;
  • enter conversations that spur innovation and demystify the publishing industry; and
  • become a vital link in the sharing of knowledge.

Our members helped create the genres and subgenres of popular fiction today and have been frontrunners in the digital revolution. They have pushed beyond boundaries of style, storytelling, marketing, and bookselling. Their names consistently appear on the top best-sellers and book reviews lists.

We are committed to welcoming a diverse and inclusive membership to our organization, and no author will ever be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race, identification, religious/spiritual beliefs if any, ability, nationality or age. It is our desire and goal to make sure that every author member feels welcomed and accepted and heard.

NINC brings our many voices and talents together for one purpose — to help each of us manage our writing career throughout a lifetime.

We are Novelists, Inc. Our story is one of networking and strong success. Join us.
