Our awards process is unique because we ask a jury of our readers, librarians and booksellers, to select their top categories as well as choose the winning titles. Their decisions take into consideration editorial excellence, professional production, originality of the narrative, author credentials relative to the book and the value the book adds to its genre.
TO ORDER: Access the Marketing Screen in your Author’s Center and choose ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Awards.
