More than 100 authors already have officially submitted books. Finalists are chosen by publishing professionals and librarians from both within and outside of Florida.
FAPA membership is not required for entry, although FAPA members receive discounts on submissions: Entry is $75 for members and $95 for non-members.
“We’re hoping for a record number of entries this year,” says Renee Garrison, FAPA President. “Our judges are busy, but we usually see a wave of submissions during the final weeks.”
Winning books are added to the FAPA Bookstore online.
“In addition to the personal recognition, there’s a cash value to winning a book award,” says Rob Jacob, former chairman of the FAPA President’s Book Awards. “Quite simply, books that win awards sell better.”
