Self-publishing is a great way to bring your book into the world.
Up to 10 Awards for Self
There are not many of the dozen accolades for self-published works that are deserving of prize. Most of the self-published prices are of no use to the writer, except for a label for which the winner often has to bear. However, there are some competitions that are not only prestigeous, but also provide significant prices to the winner, whether in the form of money or advertising.
Whilst money prizes are always valued, as is the advertising created by prize-giving, these advantages are overlooked. What will you do with your accolade? Do you order a golden seal to stick on your jacket (if it is printed)? If you don't think you have a shot at winning an accolade, it's always a good way to think ahead when it comes to your advertising and campaign.
The timeframes for these honors differ from year to year, so please review the website and schedule in advance. Please be sure to do so.
