Attention authors: Cool new book contest!

Hey there fellow authors,

I just came across an exciting new book contest that is open to books published between 2005-2009 in 40 different categories. We are planning to enter Secret of the Sands into the contest & I wanted to pass along the word:

Readers Favorite Award Contest - Enter Today!

Here is some info about the contest, which makes it so appealing:

What Do You Win?
Winners will be chosen in four levels for each Genre Category: Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mention. Each winner will receive a personalized Award Certificate, a high resolution version of their seal for publication, and a roll of Seal Stickers to affix to current editions of their book.

Readers Favorite announces the results of our competition through a premium press release which is placed into RSS feeds with more than 250,000 subscribers including bloggers, journalists and consumers. The release is also sent to more than 30,000 opt-in journalists and bloggers and will appear on search engines like Yahoo and Google. The release will remain online, indefinitely, continually advertising you and your book. Winners will also be featured on our website.

All entrants receive a complete book review which will be posted on our site and on Amazon. Winners and Finalists will receive juror feedback and evaluation notes of their work. This can be extremely helpful in rewrites or edits, especially for manuscript entries. In addition, jurors will make quotable comments throughout the evaluation which you may use in your marketing.


It sounds very exciting! You can click on the link above or the banner below to find out more info & enter the contest.

Good luck to any & all who enter!!
