This is one of the first years that self-published books have been eligible to enter “Best Published” book contests – but this trend will be continuing! Especially as indie authors prove they have what it takes to compete directly with the traditional publishing industry.
I’m *thrilled* that FEYLAND: THE BRIGHT COURT is going up against NY trad-pubbed books and winning or finaling in a number of contests! Here are the stats so far:
Grand Prize WINNER! JABBIC Cover Contest
3rd place: PRISM Contest
4th Place: Write Touch Reader’s Award
Finalist: OCC Book Buyer’s Best (Winners announced Oct. 12)
