Be sure to get a list of Award Shows and submit your book. Having a sticker to put on your website and book will do wonders for being seen as an expert.
The obvious category to submit to is your fiction/non-fiction, and then the specific category of your book subject… but don’t forget about submitting for cover and interior design and formatting, editing, or one of the other “not-your-subject-category” that is offered by the show, take some time and look over what they offer.
This is also a good way to see about getting a review, maybe from one of the judges of your category. And remember, honorable mention is an award too.
