Self-Published Authors Should Apply Now For The North Street Book Prize



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.
