Michael Martone and James H. Madison will take home big cash prizes at the fifth annual Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards, to be held Oct. 26 at the Indianapolis Central Library.

Michael Martone was awarded the 2013 National Author prize (which comes with a $10,000 cash award). James H. Madison was the Regional Author winner ($7,500). The National Author award recognizes "a writer with Indiana ties, but whose work is known and read throughout the country." The Regional Author award honors a "writer who is well-known and respected throughout the state of Indiana."

And we now know the three finalists for the Emerging Author award - Tricia Fields, Mike Mullin and Kelsey Timmerman. The winner of that $2,000 award, which recognizes "a writer who has published no more than two books during his/her lifetime," will be announced during the Oct. 26 ceremony.

In addition to the cash prize, each writer will designate a $2,500 grant to the library of his or her choosing.
