HOW DOES THE AWARD CONTEST WORK?
a. Single nomination: the public is invited to nominate their favorite author(s) - no self-nomination please!

Final eligibility will be determined by The Authors Show. Eligible nominees will be informed of their nomination via email.
2. To be a participant, nominated authors must:
a - Select their book category for each nomination (see below list); the category must match their book category on Amazon. Submissions with unmatched categories will be corrected to match the category shown on Amazon; If the author's category is not listed below, author must select either fiction-all others or nonfiction-all others;
b - Enter their book title(s) each with its individual ISBN/ASIN number - submission with no ISBN/ASIN will be rejected;
c - Submit a sample of their writing - up to 1750 words (approx. 5 pages) per submitted book;

Submissions from self-nominated authors, or without a nomination will be rejected!
3. Each nominated author will receive a digital seal she may use in her marketing materials, website and on social media; the seal will show the author is a nominee in the "2018 Top Female Authors" awards program.
4. Submissions will be rated by a panel of judges within the publishing industry; the judges will not know the identity of the authors.
