Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well. Today I’m here to tell you guys about an exciting new contest hosted by the Website Authors Talk About It.

So I was fortunate to have hosts of this contest contact me a few days ago about promoting this contest here on the blog as something that you guys may enjoy learning more about. I of course said yes after doing more research on the website and the contest.

This is the second year that this contest is being run and I think that anyone who has a story to tell would enjoy participating.

What You Need To Know:

Everyone who enters receives:

A 250-350 word critique/review of your book, which you can use/post wherever you like simply by adding “Originally critiqued by a member of the Authors Talk About It team.

This contest will be an amazing to get your book promoted. In a recent post on the website, one author who entered the contest last year was promoted in her local newspaper in Ohio so you never know your critique from this contest will get used or who will see it.

The books you submit are read by professionals and are given a rating between 2 and 5 stars.

Those earning a 3-5 Stars in their critique review receive:

  • Promotion across all of Authors Talk About It social media platforms
  • Featured blog post on the blogs: ATAI, Authors Village, Readers Village and Download This Book
  • Promotion across our combined social media of 40K+
  • Digital badge for 4-5 Stars

Those earning less than 3 Stars in their critique:

  • Critique with helpful feedback is not posted in a featured post, but emailed directly to author/email used to enter.
