Did you publish a book in 2017? Now’s the time to get a head start on those upcoming award submission deadlines for books published in this last calendar year, and the list of to-dos stretches long and far ahead. And while no one disputes that awards are important, and perhaps even vital, to a book’s overall sales, the logistics are indisputably a challenge!
But what if you could ensure that your book is in contention for a number of awards without having to worry about those logistics? And what if you could do so at a really affordable price?
This is exactly what Outskirts Press intends to do for you by offering its popular and fantastic Book Awards Submissions package at a 10% discount in December! After all, you should have the chance to enjoy the incredible benefits of submitting your book for awards without all the hassle.
What are those rewards? When you win an award, you receive third-party validation that your book is worthy. You may win prize money (two of the awards included in the Book Awards Submissions package come with cash prizes). Your book will be featured on the awards website in question. It is also traditional for these awards to send out press releases with winners and finalists included, and you yourself can send out a press release of your own announcing your award … just for that little extra jot of publicity!
Winning an award means you can add a sleek award sticker to your book cover that consumers, librarians, and booksellers will take note of. After all, people really do judge books by their covers … and they buy accordingly! But there are other, less tangible benefits to the awards submission process, including the fact that you gain credibility as a writer and a competitive edge in the self-publishing market, as well as serious bragging rights and a fantastic conversation-starter and linchpin for interviews. It summons an immeasurably great feeling to say “My book is up for an award!” no matter what the context.
If you choose to purchase the Book Awards Submissions package, your book will be submitted to:
- The Writer’s Digest International Self-Publishing Book Awards
- The USA Book News’ National Best Books Awards
- The Next Generation Indie Book Awards
- The Reader Views Literary Awards
- ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year Awards
- The Benjamin Franklin Awards
Each of these awards represents a significant investment of time, energy, and yes, occasionally money in order to submit to. By purchasing the Book Awards Submissions package, however, you get to leave that work up to our talented team of professionals, who will run all the checks and vault all possible obstacles in order to ensure that your book receives the best possible foot up in the awards circuit by managing all of the logistics and individual submissions requirements. And now, for a limited time, you can receive 10% off Book Awards Submissions.
