I always encourage writers to submit their work to contests and book awards. Should you win or become a finalist, is a great way to earn some credibility and third-party validation. Book awards can be overlooked by authors, and many writers do not know when or where to apply. Well, listen up. If you are self-published, take a look at The North Street Book Prize.
If you self-published in any of the areas below, you have until June 30th to apply:
· (e.g. romance, mystery, thriller, young adult, science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, etc.)
They are offering thousands of dollars in prize money.
