The American Book Awards Program is not associated with any industry group or trade organization. The American Book Awards offer no cash prize nor do they require any financial commitments from the authors or their publishers. The Award winners are nominated and selected by a panel of writers, editors, and publishers who also represent the diversity of American literary culture.

Submissions

There are no application forms, fees, or any other restrictions for submissions, nominations, or recommendations to the panel. The book is what matters, not the procedure. The only requirement is that two copies of the book must be mailed to the Before Columbus Foundation by December 31st for consideration for the following year’s Awards. Anyone may make a submission (it does not have to be the publisher). There is no limit on the number of titles that may be submitted. All genres are accepted (including anthologies, children’s books, and multimedia).

Wanted – Old Books

Wanted Poster1Was your book published prior to January 1, 2012?

If so, how are the sales for this book?

If it is not doing so well, “Relaunch” it.

In 2015, I will be creating an online magazine that will bring older books to the attention of new readers.

The magazine will be released quarterly:

March, June, September, and December.

This is a FREE magazine.  I will be able to keep it free because I will be selling advertisement space.

 

I am still working out many things to get this magazine off the ground.

If you are interested in showcasing your book in the March 2015 issue, please visit

http://www.cynharris.com/magazine.html

As things get worked out—like a name for the magazine, etc. – I will announce them here on this blog.

Something New For 2015

I have been busy with work, the farm, writing, the grandkids, and all the crafts that I like to do.

This year I have spent time spotlighting authors for Virtual Book Tours.

In 2015, I want to do something new.  I want to take a look at books that no one has seen for a while.

Did you publish a book prior to January 1, 2012?

If so, how is it doing?   Not too many, if any sales these days.

No one wants to buy it.  No one sees it.  It is no longer on the bookshelves.  It is not high on Amazon’s list.

In 2015, I will be creating an online magazine that showcases older books.  This will be a FREE service to authors, promoting your older work.

How can I offer a FREE service like this?

With your help, by spreading the word and me offering “advertising space” in the magazine.

The magazine will be quarterly – March, June, September, December.  It could grow to bi-monthly or even monthly depending on how many books are sent in.

What else will be in the magazine?

  • Book promotion hacks/tips
  • Book marketing hacks/tips
  • Articles pertaining to writing
  • Author Interviews
  • Advertisements
  • And so much more

If this is something you are interested in download the form below, fill it out, and send it to me at
