Contests for Indie Authors

Is it worth your effort and/or money to enter your novel in a contest or submit it for an award?

Among the many departments of ALLi, the Alliance of Independent Authors (I’m a member) is its Watchdog Desk, which monitors the self-publishing industry. Check out its Award and Contest Ratings.

You’ll find ratings (Recommended, Mixed, Caution) for a whole host of awards and contests. Hint: not many earn “Recommended” ratings.

Any experience with awards or contests? Leave a comment.
