I was nominated so, how do I officially enter the New Book Awards?

We ask you to read through the simple steps. Once you are officially entered you can then tell us more about your book.

Decide to what level to enter your book(s) and complete this entry form. Entry fees are low cost and nominally requested to cover our expenses and demonstrates proof of author serious intent to enter the New Book Awards. Payment is made through this website via Credit Card or PayPal.

Within a few days of review and acceptance of your entry application you will be asked to either send a electronic or (mail a) hard print copy of your book (as judges see fit) to a select First Round Evaluation (usually this is an indie book store or reviewer evaluating the first round).

If your entry is in electronic format only (Kindle, PDF, etc) you do NOT have to send a hard copy.

Please include a printout of your entry receipt and/or the "Confirmation of Entry" email, which will include all of your entry details, together with requested copies of your book or ebook or PDF (plus one additional copy of your book for each additional category entered). You will be notified as to which location to send your book entry and address will be given at that time.

Depending upon the success of your entry. You may be asked to send more copies of your book to additional locations which may include book reviewers, finalist judges or store buyers or industry VIP interested in particular New Book Award titles. Please comply as soon as possible.

This payment is a one time entry fee that applies per book per entry and no further fees are required to participate however, you may wish to take advantage of 'featured' and premium entry PR offerings that are geared to help your book gain maximum exposure in the New Book Awards, its an opportunity to stand-out and be seen in more places during the judging process but it is not required for entry nor does it excel the process nor increase likelihood of winning - but it may help you get more reviews and sell more books which is why it is being offered.

Again, featured showcase, category selects & additional PR placement choices are optional.

The NEW BOOK AWARDS is becoming the signature independent industry awards recognition program honoring the latest literary works in multiple genres. What makes us unique is that we are 100% independent. We do not take paid sponsorship or ad money. We are NOT affiliated with any one trade group, product, publisher, trade show or association. All publishers and authors including indie press are welcome to enter. Our award determinations are not skewed into singling out 'best of' a single category characteristic or insider industry favoritism. Instead, reviews and finalist judging are based on individual merit, scoring based on ratings inherent of the qualities that made you come to our attention as a recently published book with the added effort of the book's author makes for their own titles. Merits towards an award will vary and result from bookstores, reviewers, bloggers and other assorted contributors your entry effort encounters. We are very excited and pleased with the fair plus extra involved judging process.
