Boosts are additional award submissions you can buy on top of our plans. These do not change your subscription and are never required.

Thanks to Boosts, your book can be submitted to any number of awards each month.

If you decide to purchase a boost for your book, there are two options: a Submit Boost or a Fast Track Boost.

  • A Submit Boost includes one award submission. Book Award Pro handles everything for you, from ideally presenting your book to the judges, paying the award’s entry fee, and managing your submission all the way to the finish line.
  • A Fast Track Boost includes five award submissions and maximizes your award-winning potential. It includes all the same features as the Submit Boost and additionally targets your five best award opportunities, focusing on awards that are announcing results soon.

Read on to learn how to purchase a Submit Boost or Fast Track Boost.
