is for
Independent Authors

Chill with a Book AWARDS are designed to promote the best from Independent authors

Awards are...

Readers' Award
Readers' Premier Award
Book of the Month Award

All books are read by an equal number of readers.

It is the collective result from all the readers of each book that determines if a book is awarded or not. 

Titles accepted for consideration will be read by Chill’s readers and checked against the following criteria…

Were the characters strong and engaging?
Was the book well written?
Did the story / plot have you turning the page to find out what happened next?
Was the ending satisfying?
Would you recommend to someone who reads this kind of story?

Authors must accept that a book accepted for consideration for a Chill with a Book AWARD does not guarantee it will receive the AWARD.

There will be  a YEAR END AWARD for....

Book of the Year

All awardees will be notified directly.
Awarded books will be showcased on Chill with a Book's web site, Chills' Facebook page and Twitter.

There are limited places each month for books to be considered and if you are interested in submitting your title please fill in the CONTACT form found in the left hand column. Please include your pen name.

It doesn't matter when the book was published, but it must be published by an independent author or an author with a small independent publisher.

Chill with a Book’s decisions to accept or reject a book for consideration is final.
Chill with a Book's decision to award a book or not is final. 

NOTE: Chill with a Book Awards is not accepting erotic, Sci Fi or fantasy at the present time.
