The greatest challenge for ebook authors, both fiction and nonfiction, is getting them known. Known, read, loved, and recommended to others. This is the best publicity: “word of mouth.” The predicament is finding readers interested in your subject. Judges for the Global Ebook Awards select the categories of books in which they have an expertise and want to read. They are avid readers who voluntarily come to your ebook.
Being nominated for an ebook award multiplies your investment three ways.
1. More reviews for your book.
Judges range from book bloggers to book reviewers, librarians, book club & reading circle members, publicists, book shepherds, as well as professional critics and subject-matter experts in the category they prefer.
Many of the more than 250 judges need material for their (category) blogs and many will review your book at Amazon, B&N.com, Midwest Book Review, etc. See the list of judges at

2. Six promotional projects.
Once your ebook is accepted into Nomination, you will receive a promotional project each week for six weeks. These projects will show you where to publicize your book’s nomination and how to track the results. You can use these publicity ideas and projects for this and all future ebooks.
3. Nominated “sticker.”
Bring attention to your ebook by placing a Nominated sticker in your blog, website, emails, etc.
Being accepted into Nomination into the Global Ebook Awards is a stepping-stone to more publicity. Reviews and publicity projects multiply your investment and maximize publicity for your book.
