There are hundreds of thousands of new books published each year. A large fraction of it is mostly self-published. But an undeniable truth that comes after these books are printed and distributed is many of those newly published titles may not get any following, or may not even sell. And of course, authors have different motives on why they write, and it is not always for profit, yet, many of the authors have the end goal of selling thousands of copies of their hard-earned published works.
Entering a book contest will help experienced and especially less-experienced authors boost their credibility in the book and reader communities. It opens up opportunities to reach your target audience and extend your borders. You can gain a market advantage over others that have been kept unnoticed due to low media exposure or lacking market visibility. While getting your book scrutinized and judged on its quality and overall readability may cause some distress or excitement for new authors, it does put a different level of recognition by the time your entry is selected.
There are a lot of perks when your book is recognized in any category. You can place the seal of excellence on your book cover to make it stand out among the new releases. Your title will receive extra publicity by getting announced to partner channels in the industry, and of course, a lifetime honor that can be visible to readers, agents, and traditional publishers.
