As professionals in the publishing industry, we realize the challenges involved in promoting your book.
How can you, as a publisher or author, help inform people of the value of your book? How do you ensure your book rises above all the others out there? One of the best ways to do this is through a third party endorsement.
CHILDREN'S & YA BOOK AWARDS ~ CHILDREN'S & YA BOOK REVIEWS ~ SEAL OF APPROVAL
All books submitted for review and for the Literary Classics book awards program are eligible to be considered for the Literary Classics Seal of Approval program. The Literary Classics Seal of Approval indicates that the book bearing the SOA insignia is worthy of praise and comes recommended by Literary Classics.
Books endorsed by Literary Classics through our Seal of Approval program, may be affixed with the Seal of Approval label, thereby increasing credibility, recognition, and sales opportunities.
In an effort to maintain the highest level of credibility in our review process, we do not charge for book reviews.
BOOK REVIEWS - It is not necessary for you to enter our awards program in order to have your book reviewed by Literary Classics. - We will provide a limited number of book reviews based upon volume at the time your book is submitted. Please note, submission of your book for review does not guarantee that your book will be reviewed. If your book is reviewed and receives our Seal of Approval your review may be posted on sites such as GoodReads.com. It is our goal to promote excellence in literature - therefore, we do not post negative reviews. We do however, reserve the right to choose not to review a book which we believe is not deserving of our endorsement.
Free reviews are available only in those categories in which our current load of award entries has not exceeded capacity. When the number of award entries is at capacity books within a genre may be temporarily unavailable for a free review option.
YES - We will accept advance review copies of your book.
YES - You may still enter your book into our awards program if you have received a free review, as long as your book meets the guidelines as specified on our award entry guidelines page.
YES - Literary Classics is an international book award program. Accordingly, we gladly accept books from around the globe. Please note, international submissions must be written primarily in English.
