Word is spreading quickly, so by now you’ve probably heard about the 10K Novel Writing Challenge that starts on March 1st.
You may have already made the bold decision to get going on your novel this year, so this opportunity to make 10,000 words’ worth of progress on your book is probably one of the best ways you could spend the month of March.
But the best part is that three awards are up for grabs, all going to the most promising works-in-progress.
What’s so great about winning an award? The answer is simple: it’s a great career booster, and here are 3 reasons why:
1. You’re taken more seriously. Being an award-winning author (instead of just “a writer”) gives you instant credibility. It means your work was recognized as being top-notch—a distinction that few novelists ever try for—and catapults you from hobbyist to serious career author.
2. People are more likely to buy your book. Hey, winning an award is an impressive feat, and readers know this. Seeing “Award-winning” on the cover of any book can quickly tip a reader from “Hmmm, sounds interesting…” to “Add to cart.” And that’s exactly what you want!
3. You’ll be featured in our literary magazine. As an award winner, you can give your blossoming career a jump start with a feature article about you in Books & Buzz Magazine. Getting your work in front of as many people as possible is very important, and believe it or not, the best time to do this is before your book is published.
