Book Award Pro

Boosts are additional award and review submissions you can purchase while subscribed to any of our monthly plans. They do not change your subscription and are never a requirement, but with Boosts, there’s no limit to how many awards and reviews you can submit to each month.

If you decide to purchase a Boost for your book, you have two options:

  • A Submit Boost includes one (1) award or review submission. Book Award Pro handles everything for you, from ideally presenting your book to the judges, paying the entry fee, and managing your submission all the way to the finish line.
  • A Fast Track Boost includes five (5) award submissions and is the fastest way to become an award-winning author. It includes all the same benefits as the Submit Boost and additionally targets your five best award opportunities, focusing on awards that are announcing results soon.

How to purchase a Boost with Book Award Pro

Follow these steps in your Book Award Pro account to purchase a Submit or Fast Track Boost:

1. Make sure your book and author profiles are complete

To purchase a Submit or Fast Track Boost, your book must have an active plan with Book Award Pro. If you already have your plan chosen and have added your book profile, continue to the next section.

If you haven’t started your service yet, be sure to freshen up on how to create your Book Award Pro account.

2. Select a book from your Awards Dashboard

We have two boost options available for you to purchase:

  • Submit Boost - one (1) complete award or review submission
  • Fast Track Boost - five (5) complete award submissions and targeting for quick results


Select Compare Boosts if you’d like to see more information about the differences between them.

Once you’re ready, choose Submit Boost or Fast Track Boost and select Confirm.

The credit card that’s currently on file will be used to purchase your chosen Boost, so if you want to update it, be sure to do that before confirming. Otherwise, select Confirm to complete the Boost purchase.
