USEFUL LINKS

BJ Gallagher, The Ten Awful Truths — and the Ten Wonderful Truths — About Book Publishing, The Huffington Post, December 6, 2017.
The best part is at the end, so be sure to keep reading.

Glenna Collett, Book award contests: Are they worthwhile?, June 15, 2016.
This article has some good advice and a helpful list of pros and cons of entering book award contests.

Award and Contest Ratings, Alliance of Independent Authors.
This page provides some guiding principles to keep in mind when considering book awards. It also includes ratings of an extensive number of national awards.  Always use such ratings with caution as circumstances change and experiences are subjective.

Scott Lorenz, 40 Book Awards Authors Should Pursue, Westwind Communications.
This article includes a very helpful list of legitimate awards. Some are crossed off because awards come and go. Scott Lorenz is a book publicist, so he spends some time describing cases in which a book award led to national media coverage or a movie deal; he is of course looking for clients. Still, his list and the links it includes are helpful as a way to navigate the wide array of book award possibilities.

Literary Awards, Wikipedia
This link provides an overwhelmingly long list of book award possibilities, but you can scan the categories and focus on those that fit your genre and topic.
