We’ve just wrapped up another amazing Readers Choice Awards Contest, and we’re so excited to finally announce the winners for 2020!
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 love to support readers.
Readers are why we joined the publishing industry in the first place. We’re looking to entertain, inform, and connect with readers just like you all over the world.
So we decided to create a book awards contest that would bring together indie authors and devoted readers.
We invited indie and self-published authors to submit their best work in a range of 16 categories, and then the readers decided who would win by voting for their favorites!
This is our fourth year running the Readers Choice Awards contest, and we couldn’t be any happier with it!
