The Prize seeks to support independent authors and discover great books in six categories: Romance/Erotica; Mystery/Thriller; Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror; General Fiction; Memoir/Autobiography; YA/Middle Grade. The Prize is judged by PW reviewers, editors, acclaimed authors, and publishing veterans, and awards are given to finalists in each category, with a grand prize going to the most outstanding finalist.
The entry period for the current BookLife Prize is now closed.
The grand prize winner of the BookLife Prize in Fiction will receive $5,000 as well as an author profile in Publishers Weekly.
All finalists will receive a blurb from a bestselling/award-winning author or professional editor serving as a guest judge for the contest, as well as mention in Publishers Weekly.
All entrants will receive a Critic’s Report, which includes a score as well as a brief written critical assessment of their novel by a Publishers Weekly reviewer. (Click here to see real examples of Critic's Reports.)
"Since reaching the finals I have signed with a literary agent and been contacted by a film producer. Most importantly through the process of participating in the Prize, I got very valuable feedback on my work and broadened my author network considerably." T.J. Slee
