The problem is, it's hard for readers to find a good self-published book without first slogging through typos and run-on sentences. Publishing companies assure their readers that the books they put out have been read, approved of, and meticulously edited. But anyone can self-publish a book, so it's next to impossible for readers to pick out the diamonds in the rough.
In this digital age, more and more authors are realizing that self-publishing is not only easier, it is also more satisfying and, in many cases, more lucrative. But even with Amazon giveaways, it's hard to publicize a self-published book. That's why we're hosting the Self-Published Novel Competition this winter. We want to embrace these changing times and elevate deserving self-published authors to a new level.
If you're a self-published author, the competition is free to enter, and will be a great way to promote your book. Here's what you need to know:
-Published within a year of the contest start date (any time after November 2, 2011)
-HAS NOT been reviewed at Underground Book Reviews.
The Self-Published Novel Competition will be 100% popular vote. It will be up to each individual author to gain support from their readers.
Friday, November 2: voting begins (new authors can still be added)
Monday, December 3: voting closes
Friday, December 7: winners are announced
