A Word About Our Award Designations
Different contests have different designations. We have structured our contest so that only one book per category may be designated “Winner.” However, there are often more than one title in a category that truly stand out and we believe these deserve recognition also. We are dedicated to celebrating excellence in published books so we created the category of “Finalist.” Books that are recognized as Finalists are in every way outstanding. The difference between the Winner and Finalist books are often so small that the call might have gone either way.
The bottom line is that being recognized as a Finalist is a high honor and something about which any author can and should be justifiably proud. Readers recognize that Finalist books are worthy of their attention and their book-buying dollars.
We will notify each entry of the package's receipt via e-mail and will announce all winning entries on our web site after the judging is complete and after the date for submissions is closed for the year. Because of the high volume of entries, it could take up to two weeks to send you the notification that we received your book. Thank you.
Please send one copy of the book per category entered. 2017, 2018 and up to March 31, 2019 publication dates are eligible. You can put all the categories in which you submit on one Submission Form but be sure to copy the submission form and put one in each book that you submit in each category. All titles must have an ISBN.
Published books from anywhere in the world are eligible as long as they are in English and able to be purchased in the United States.
All titles must have an ISBN and be published books available on Amazon.com.
We reserve the right to move books into another category if it seems appropriate.
