Indie Author Book Reviews is pleased to announce new award program. We believe authors should be recognized for their talent and creativity. Beginning in March, authors will be able to submit their works for the Indie Autor Book Review Awards. The winner in each category will receive an acrylic award that you can display. You will also receive a digital file with our logo, year and Winner or Finalist. This will be great to display on your social media or have made into a sticker for your book cover. Finalist will receive a smaller award that can be displayed. We also will have a category for the best book cover in each genre. It will be an add on entry. The fee to enter a book will be $75 per book. If you want to also enter the book cover contest, it will be an additional $25. To enter, you will need to fill out the entry form and pay the fee. You will receive a confirmation email with instructions on where to mail two copies of your book. The entries will open on March 1 and run until July 31, 2023. Books will be judged in August. Awards will be announced in September. The physical awards will be mailed as soon as they are completed at the factory. Some special things to take note of are:
Since this is the first year of the awards books published between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2022, will be eligible. Yes, we are covering a two-year span to give more authors a chance to have their work entered. After this year, the two year period will only apply to first time authors.
When you send your books to be judged, they will not be returned. They will be given to our panel of judges to be read. The judges are not required to return the books.
All authors that enter will have the opportunity to do a guest blog post on our site. If you are interested be sure to fill out the information on the entry form.
Winners will be showcased on our website. The authors will have their book posted with links to purchase, author bio, book blurb, and links to the authors social media.
