Award Rules

Winners in each category will be notified by e-mail and on the web site.

A Word About Our Award Designations

There are no hard and fast rules about how a contest is to designate its winners. Different contests have different designations. We have structured our contest so that only one book per category may be designated “Winner.”

However, often there is more than one book in a category that truly stands out, and we believe these deserve recognition also. While it makes the job of our judges harder in some ways, 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 minute 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 the 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.
