International Ebook Awards Inaugural Launch

OCEANSIDE, CA. The Ebook Academy’s International Ebook Awards has launched its first annual awards. The deadline to enter is December 31, 2013, and awards will be announced February 1, 2014.

The Ebook Awards is open to any author or publisher who wants to nominate their ebook. The six ebook award categories are Adult Fiction and Non-fiction, Young Adult/Children’s Fiction and Non-Fiction, Ebook Cover Design, and Ebook Video Trailer.

-We initially created these awards to give our students at The Ebook Academy the exposure to prospective ebook readers,- says Andrea Glass, Dean of Education. -You can write the best ebook, but if nobody knows about it, then that’s the readers’ and author’s loss.-

-Our judges have specific criteria they look for such as writing quality (including style and clean editing), effective, engaging communication, ebook format/ layout, cover, uniqueness, creativity, valuable content, and overall impressions,- says Bruce Fischer, Dean of Marketing. -We consider all award applicants as winners just for entering, and they receive prizes as well.- All entrants in The International Ebook Awards will receive an honorable mention digital sticker and a press release with distribution. The six winners will receive more than $500 in prizes including a digital sticker, quote from award judges, book review, social media coverage, press release and distribution, and one-year enrollment in The Ebook Academy. -Most authors feel that writing and publishing ebooks is generally easier than selling them,- says Glass. -That’s why we offer several marketing packages at And it’s why we’re providing publicity for every Ebook Awards contestant.-

The deadline to enter is midnight, December 31st. 2013. The entry fee is $47 per entry, and the limit is two entries per person. For more information and to complete an entry form go to
