ForeWord Magazine is now accepting entries for their Book of the Year Awards. They aim to “bring increased attention from librarians and booksellers to the literary achievements of independent publishers and their authors”, which may be why they feel justified in charging $70 per book to enter their competition. That may also be why they listed 216 winners last year, to provide some payback to as many of the entries as possible.
They say they had nearly 1400 entries, which means almost $98,000 in entry fees. Nice chunk of change! And they only offered two $1500 prizes to grand winners.
