Think Your Book Has What it Takes to Win an Award?

All of your effort and hard work could be noticed by applying for a book award. Book awards are great for book marketing and winning a book award could be the type of publicity and exposure your book needs to set it apart from others in your genre! There are many book awards out there so there are a few things to keep in mind before starting the application process.

1. Make sure the award is legitimate 

Do your homework on the award. Make sure the sponsor of the award is a legitimate sponsor, and even look into past winners. When Googling the award it should be easy to find information about the award. Also beware of newer awards with hefty submission fees. Sometimes it is safer to go with an older award that has been around and is trusted.

2. Read the directions and give the judges what they want

To give your book the best odds of winning, start by reading the submission guidelines. Seems simple, but make sure you follow the directions precisely. For example, you will need to send in a copy of your book. When doing so be sure to read up on whether a print copy (some request more than one) or electronic copy is desired. Also be cautious to apply for an award that fits the type of publishing you used for your book. And don’t be discouraged if your book is self-published there are plenty of awards available! Finally, check the publishing date range. Don’t submit a book if it does not match the date requirements.

3. Make sure the genre of your book is fitting for the award

Most awards are categorized by genre. As a historical fiction author you would not want to apply for a history non-fiction—this would be a waste of time. Do your research and make sure your book is a good fit for the award’s category.

4. It is better to be early than late

When you find the perfect award for your book be sure to turn in all of the material on time to ensure your book in entered. It is better to send the necessary materials long before the due date. Better to be early than miss the due date.

5. Pay attention to details 

Judges will look over every detail of your application and book. Make sure everything is perfect before sending in your application. You are an author so grammar and spelling count.

Many book awards can be found on our website.
