Xulon Press is proud to announce the launch of the 2010 Christian Choice Book Awards on June 4, 2010. This contest, which is open to all authors who have published a Christian book between April 21, 2009, and May 29, 2010, awards up to $300 in prize money for runners-up and an Apple iPad to the grand prize winner. This contest was established to recognize Christian authors for outstanding literary achievement in 14 categories: Christian Living, Bible Study, Devotional, Current Events/Political, Christian Fiction, Poetry, Ministry, Theology, Autobiography/Biography, Missions, Health, End-Times, Counseling/Recovery, and Parenting: Marriage & Family.
Xulon Press is currently accepting full-length fiction and non-fiction books—either case-bound or paper-bound—that have been published in the United States as a self-published work or as a work published by a non-traditional or print-on-demand publisher. The contest will accept its last submissions on June 30, and a list of winners will be announced on July 31.
Our judges use a number of criteria to evaluate the books: Is the book well-written and readable? Is the subject matter original? Does the material engage the reader? Does the book teach, inspire, or encourage the reader? If you feel your book meets one or more of these criteria, you may submit it for entry here: http://www.xulonpress.com/contest/Contest/index.php
