BellaOnline Ebook Awards

The BellaOnline Ebook Awards celebrate the rich diversity of self-published and small press ebooks. Some of the finest novels in our modern era began as self-published ebooks. Did you know that Ulysses by James Joyce was first self published? How about The Adventures of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter and The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller?

Self-published authors deserve to be celebrated with the strongest accolades for their accomplishments.

BellaOnline Ebook Award Many literature awards only accept paperback submissions or they only accept submissions from large publishers. A self-published author often can't even have the opportunity to apply for those awards. That seems a shame! Here at BellaOnline we feel the self-published and small-publisher books deserve immense recognition and promotion. Many times, smaller can definitely be better!

Submissions to the BellaOnline Ebook Awards can currently be done in the following categories:

Fiction Categories of Ebook Awards
* Mystery / Thriller
* Science Fiction / Fantasy
* Romance
* Children's
* Literature

Non-Fiction Categories of Ebook Awards
* Self Help
* Cooking
* Poetry
* Spiritual / Religious
* General

All ebooks written after January 1, 2012, published either through self-publishing or by a small publisher (less than 50 books/year) are eligible.

If you have a category that isn't listed here that you'd like to submit for, Contact BellaOnline and let us know. If we get enough requests for a category, we'll add it in.

The BellaOnline Ebook Award Process
Did you know that many of the major book award companies don't even read the entire book? Sometimes they might read only a page or two and decide your book is not in the running. What if the rest of the book was stunning? Not only that, but they don't offer any feedback at all on the book. You pay your fee, it goes into a black hole, and you get a rejection letter. End of story.

At BellaOnline, we are strong supporters of the creative process. We want to help you succeed. So we absolutely will read your entire book if you submit it. Not only that, but if you want, we'll offer feedback based on what we read. You'll get supportive, constructive advice on how to polish your work into a top seller.

Reading Fees
BellaOnline's reading fees are far lower than other similar ebook awards programs. And we offer feedback as well!
