Who Doesn’t Want To Be an Award-Winning Author?


How would you like to become an award-winning author?

Now that your book is published, the next step is to promote it so that others can read the message God gave to you.

One of the best ways to gain exposure and influence buyers to purchase your book is by pursuing book awards.

When buyers are given the option of two books on the same topic, but one has won an award, buyers will consistently choose the award winner. Winning a book award is great for promotion and publicity, plus it verifies the worth of your book – which consequently boosts its sales.

Two of the publishing associations Certa Publishing is a member of host annual book awards, and one is still open for submissions!

Last year, 2 of Certa’s titles won Silver Awards in the Benjamin Franklin Awards. Will you and your book be next?

The Independent Book Publishers Association hosts the Benjamin Franklin Awards, which is regarded as one of the highest national honors for publishers and authors. For each of its 55 categories, 1 Gold and at least 2 Silver awards are given per category. In addition to prestige, winners receive:

• 2 tickets to the award ceremony
• an award certificate
• special award stickers to affix to the winning books
• recognition on the IBPA website before and after the awards ceremony
• announcement to major trade journals (including Publishers Weekly and Book Business)
• announcement to select public libraries
• announcement to all IBPA social media channels

Titles must have a copyright year of 2016 to be eligible. Entrance fee is $195 and the deadline to submit is 12/1/16. Certa Authors, CONTACT US to submit your book!

Although you are not guaranteed to win, the benefits are priceless if your book is picked for an award. We hope you will consider pursuing this opportunity to let us help promote your book!

Remember, once you win an award, you will always be known as an “Award-Winning Author!” 

Please let us know if you have any questions about this opportunity!
