The last few weeks at Reader Views have been busy to say the least! As we receive the last batches of first-line judge’s scores and reviews, there are many things the 2016-2017 participants should be considering:
· For winners and finalists–it is a given that winning an honorable status will provide a strong promotional tool. But a tool is only good if put to use! This is why having a plan is imperative, and all participants should be thinking, even before the announcement, about what comes next.
· For the participants that do not make the finals, making the most of the awards also requires a plan. Not receiving an awards seal doesn’t mean authors can’t use a quote from the awards judge to promote their book!
· The award seal and review are both tools, and the Awards name is what gives the tools credibility. But, it is up to the authors to find creative ways of using these tools when promoting their books.
