Determining a book's merit is a challenging task in any writing contest, and deciding which Indie author will win our best book awards and prizes is a job we take very seriously.
Our judges are selected from an elite group of experienced literary professionals, book reviewers, professional editors, and passionate readers, all of whom know and love books, inside and out.
best book awards | writing contest | self-publishers
Each book is given a score between 1 - 15 on these and other factors. The 11- 15 scores are reserved for exceptional achievement based on a judge's own discretion.
Scores for the best book awards are averaged in each genre and category, and the self-publishers with the highest ones go on to more rounds of judging. Overall between 2-5 judges will read and score each book in the writing contest. The higher the book ranks, the more eyes it will have on it.
