Can you believe it’s mid-August already? Can you believe our local home improvement store has its artificial Christmas trees out already?! That’s just wrong. The temperature’s been 100+ for the last few weeks in Texas! Not only that, but those Christmas trees are taking up good space that could be used for the super early Halloween displays - LOL! It’s too much!
Anyway, now that summer is winding down and the kids are heading back to school, I thought it would be a great time to share some information about our Literary Awards, which we have been hosting since 2005! We have received so many inspiring books already that it looks like this will be another great program.
I’m happy to note that we’ve done away with the early bird registration fee, meaning the standard entry fee will remain at the $89 price throughout the submission period. You asked - we listened!
That said, there’s no reason to wait until December to submit your book. The next couple of months are the actually the best months to get your entries in - before the mad rush to beat the December deadline. This also gives our reviewers more time to read!
All awards submissions receive the following with each entry:
Book Review – Each title will receive a book review. The review will be posted on our websites, either ReaderViews.com or ReaderViewsKids.com. They will also be posted on the Thoughtcrawlers and Reader Views blogs. Authors will also receive a PDF copy of the review for promotional use.
Social Media Postings – Review will be shared and promoted on our Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram pages. Be sure to follow us on social media so you can share the news we post about your books with your followers.
We will also post your review on Goodreads and Barnes & Noble if your book is listed with these organizations.
News – Review will be featured on the Recent Reviews dedicated page of ReaderViews.com. These reviews are rotated on a weekly basis.
All entries must be post-marked by December 31, 2019. With so many intriguing titles submitted in all categories, the anticipation is already building! Find out more about the 2019-2020 Literary Awards and guidelines here. If you have any questions, email us at email@example.com.
