Entering your book in contests is definitely a great way to draw attention to your book. Simply entering ensures that your title will be reviewed and discussed amongst the judges, who are generally chosen from within the publishing industry and could very well spread news of your book once they return to their “day jobs.” Not only that, if your book is recognized, the chances of your book gaining exposure increases drastically. Plus, you get to mention to potential readers that your book has competed and placed in national contests.
Keep up the good work, Dr. Rawlings!
