#AuthorsTalkAboutIt – 2018 Book Award Contest

Authors Talk About It

Whether or not you are heavily embroiled in your NaNoWriMo quest at the moment, you will finish your manuscript. What will you do when that WIP is finished? What is your next step?

You worked hard and put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into writing your book. In fact, you may have already invested a good deal of money into an editor, cover designer, online marketing and more.

Remember those book award contests I wrote about last year? I wrote one in January about the ATAI 2017 Book Award Contest! I wrote again in February about a number of additional book award contests. There will be LOTS of them surfacing and each vying for your attention after the first of the year. Most will cost money. Every contest is different; therefore, it’s important to do some research and make sure that you’re entering a valid contest, especially if there’s an entry fee. (However, free contests may not benefit you as much as those with an entry fee. You get what you pay for–right?)

If your pulse quickens with a touch of excitement mixed with a hint of fear, you are not alone! It’s akin to laying your soul bare to put your work out there. What’s next in your journey to publish? What will it really do for you? Continue reading “#AuthorsTalkAboutIt – 2018 Book Award Contest”

Exciting, Affordable Book Award Contest

Remember that contest late last year in which you furiously wrote your book to the goal of at least 50,000 words? Did you finish your manuscript? If you didn’t–Push!

You have plenty of time to enter your novel in the ATAI 2017 Book Award Contest! You can enter a published or unpublished book or eBook. You want to know how much! I get it–Indie authors don’t have much money for entry fees. But first you should know the exciting value you’ll be getting for the entry fee and it includes (but not limited to):

♦ A 250-300 word, high quality review-critique of your book, which you may use in whole or in part simply by adding the attribution.

♦ Promotion across all of ATAI social media

♦ Featured blog post on their four website/blogs

♦ Books earning 4-5 stars receive a digital ATAI Badge–use it anywhere! Authors Talk About It Badge

Yeah, I know you’re still asking–how much?

And second, you should know that there are ten book categories, including general fiction, mystery, sci-fi, and everything in between. Your book will fit very neatly into one of the categories listed on their website.

Third, you should see the  prizes awarded, which include a Grand Prize, First Prize in Category, and Finalists. The Grand Prize is valued at $3997 and includes (but is not limited to):

♦ Promotion across social media throughout 2018

♦ Featured on homepage throughout 2018

♦ Featured on sidebar throughout 2018

♦ Listed on 2017 ATAI Winners page, plus more–you must read their website!

At this point, you are probably thinking–“yeah, expensive!” Right? Wrong!

This one is only $35.00!

Wha??? (How’s that for affordable??!)
