When you submit your book, we will review your book from an "overall potential reader experience" perspective in which we will take a thorough look at your book cover, book description, and "Look Inside" sample.

The Author Shout Reader Ready Awards will be conducted in three phases:

Phase One - Submit Your Book For Review

All Author Shout Reader Ready Awards submissions will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Book Cover (20% of your score) We are looking for book covers that grab our attention and make us want to read your book description
  • Book Description (40% of your score) We are looking for that "wow factor" here that compels, excites, or intrigues us to want to "Look Inside" and read further.  Book descriptions should be free of typos, more than one sentence, and not leave us feeling confused to what we just read
  • "Look Inside" Sample (40% of your score) We are looking at formatting, writing quality, no typos, a strong introduction, and reader flow
  • Feedback Report - Once we have reviewed ALL books entered, we will compile all of the notes taken from our review and send you a report of our overall findings from each book submitted.  The goal of this report is to give you feedback that will greatly assist you in making solid decisions to improve your cover, book description, and look inside section that will generate more interest/sales.

 

ALL Categories/Genres/Sub-Genres Accepted - We are accepting ALL categories/genres/Sub-Genres and will not discriminate based on category/genre/sub-genre.  We are reviewing every book entered from an "overall potential reader experience".  We decided to accept all categories/genres/sub-genres because of the extensively wide variety of possibilities that are available on Amazon and did not want to limit entries based on this fact.

Phase Two - Selection Process

After we review your book cover, book description, and look inside section of each entry, we will select books to go onto phase two.   If your book was selected, you will receive notification via the email address you provided that your book will be advancing to Phase Two and you will then be asked to submit your manuscript (.mobi or .pdf format) for our selection of readers to read your book in its entirety.

If your book was not selected, you will still receive an email from our team notifying you that your book was not selected to move onto Phase Two.  If your book was not selected, you can always re-enter the following year when registration is open again.

**NOTE** If your book was selected during this phase you will be required to provide a copy of your book in digital format.  You can submit your book to our team in either .mobi or .pdf format once notified of your selection.
