Is your book the best self-published book?

 Not long ago, I highlighted Shelf Unbound, a free magazine for writers. It's a great way to keep up with what's going on in the industry. And yesterday, I got this note in my inbox:

Call for Entries: Self-Published Authors
Shelf Unbound book review magazine announces the Shelf Unbound Writing Competition for Best Self-Published Book. Any self-published book in any genre is eligible for entry. Entry fee is $10 per book. Winning entries will be featured in the December/January 2013 issue of Shelf Unbound. Details here. Contact: Margaret Brown, publisher, margaret@shelfmediagroup.com.

If you've got a self-published book, or know someone who does, this could be a perfect opportunity to get some exposure among the over 100,000 readers. The entry fee is pretty low, and your book just might be one of the five that gets highlighted. The top book also receives a year's worth of full-page ads in the magazine.

What contests have you entered with your writing? Even if you didn't win, did you feel like the entry process was a productive exercise?

  9. Just found your blog and have enjoyed looking around! I'll definitely be checking out the contest. Self-publishing isn't always celebrated, so it's a good opportunity.
