Award matching is an ongoing process and will provide your book with various fitting award opportunities to consider. Book Award Pro technology continuously works for your book, and you will be notified of fresh award matches every few days.
Connect with Readers Feature
Sharing your award progress is easier than ever thanks to Connect With Readers. We make it simple to share pre-made social media posts from inside your Book Award Pro account.
As you go through the awards process, the Connect with Readers feature automatically gives you new messages and exciting news to share about your book. This helps you easily engage with your followers and for your book to be discovered by entirely new audiences around the world.
You’ll also get a unique sharing code included in your posts. If someone clicks on your link and purchases a subscription with us, we’ll give you credit on your Book Award Pro account. It’s that simple.

Essentials Plan » $15/Month
The Book Award Pro Essentials plan includes everything in the Free plan, plus our thorough Award Research & Guidance features.
Award Research & Guidance

Plus Plan » $69/Month
The Book Award Plus plan includes everything in Essentials, plus our Award Targeting feature.
Your budget and time are not unlimited. You want to focus on the opportunities which will create the best results for your book. Having relevant award matches and detailed information is a significant first step in your award-winning journey. However, without Award Targeting, you’re aiming in the dark.
Now that you have all of these award opportunities to consider… how do you choose exactly which ones to enter? Of all the options, which one is the most promising for your book right now?
Our Targeting technology analyzes your awards landscape, millions of data points, to determine the one award opportunity which is most promising for your book at any given time. But you do not need to deal with any of those technical details; this all happens automatically for you.
In just a few days, this analysis will be complete, and you will be notified of your Targeted award – the exact opportunity that is most promising for your book right now. Feel confident applying for this award, knowing it’s the one that provides your book with the most potential. You will know precisely where to apply your limited budget and time to help your book’s success.
Is the Plus Plan Right for Me?
Feeling overwhelmed by the number of award opportunities for your book, and you aren’t sure which award you should go for?
Then the Plus plan is right for you. Feel confident knowing that when your book is submitted for its Targeted award, that is your best chance at becoming an award-winning author.
Pro Plan » $199/Month

Our Pro Plan does everything for you, from award matching, targeting, submitting, and tracking. As a result, you’ll never run out of award opportunities, and we’ll manage the entire award process all the way to the finish line.
Professional Award Submission
Each award has its own requirements for submissions and nuances for judging. Every tiny detail matters to make your book stand out. That’s why we use our vast experience to handle the award submission process, and it works.
Our professional submissions include re-verifying the award details and ensuring any last-minute changes the award judges made to their awards are followed. We also validate all entry criteria and follow each award's unique submission requirements. If the award has additional questions or needs anything more for your book, we’ll handle all communication promptly, ensuring your book gets the chance to win it deserves.
Once submitted, Book Award Pro monitors and tracks your award journey, keeping you updated about any bonus benefits or award-winning news along the way.
Is the Pro Plan Right for Me?
This is the plan most authors use to become award-winning authors. The Pro plan is right for authors who are ready to make the most out of their award journey and put their best foot forward for every award opportunity.
Additional Book Award Pro Services
