We just wrapped up another amazing Readers Choice Awards Contest in 2019, and we’re so excited to finally announce the winners!
Why We Started This Book Awards Contest
No matter how you choose to publish a book, we think what authors do is amazing and we want to celebrate writers everywhere.
We also support readers.
Readers are why we all joined the publishing industry in the first place. They’re why we do what we do: we’re looking to entertain, inform, and connect with readers all over the world just like you.
So we decided to create a book awards program that would bring together indie authors and devoted readers.
This year, indie and self-published authors submitted their best work in a range of 16 categories, and then the readers decided who would win!
This is our third year running the Readers Choice Awards contest, and we couldn’t be any happier with it!
