It is our favorite time of the year again when we get to announce the finalists of our annual awards competition. It’s a bit like Christmas morning finding presents under the tree! And, although we wish everyone could win, it cannot be. So, we wish all the finalists’ good luck, knowing that in our hearts and minds you all are winners.
All participants should know that in most cases, a VERY SMALL margin determined the finalists. So, be proud of your book and your accomplishment.
Winners will be announced on Monday, March 7, 2022. Finalists, as you wait for the winner’s announcement, there are few things you can do to get ready and make the most of your status!
- Literary Awards give credibility to your title! Make the most of your expert status and give author interviews, publish articles, and share your knowledge with upcoming new authors. Giving back is the best way to promote your work!
- Plan your strategy for spreading the news about your accomplishment! Announcements to the media can be made through press releases and their launch can be coordinated with a social media campaign.
- Once the final placements are announced, we will be producing award certificates, to be emailed along with a digital copy of the sticker seal. This is the time to begin to contact your publishers to find out what you need to do to add the seal to your digital book covers. Those of you that have printed copies, award stickers will be available. Details next week.
Everyone who entered the program should be proud of being a participant, as you have accomplished something most people do not. You not only wrote and published a book – you also endured the critical examination of three lines of judges! Use quotes of your review and share the knowledge you acquired during the process to make the most of the experience and keep writing!
