We love book contests, in fact, Penny has judged a few of them, including Writer’s Digest and IBPA’s Benjamin Franklin Awards!

So this podcast is both a behind-the-scenes deep dive into book awards and contests, why you’d want to enter your book, and how to find the right ones. Plus, we’ll talk about what to avoid, like scammy contests that just want to take your money (sadly, they’re out there, too).

Our goal for this episode is to inspire you to put yourself out there and start submitting yourself to contests and awards (or more of them) because there are a lot of surprising ways they can help your platform!
