Literary Award Nominees

These wonderful titles are nominated submissions to the prestigious award opportunities for the 2022 year of published considerations through our midlist of aspiring authors.

They succeed in being identified as worthy to be submitted and this value of recognition to our talented and worthy authors is part of our ongoing support to them having an equal opportunity for any and all award offerings around the world, regardless of the administrations which represent them or the prejudices that are lacking in real support for new talents and artists to grow and become something dreamed by many.

We enter our books in many award opportunities for varying styles and genres and reasons, and these titles, like all the entrants, will have an equal chance going into the race, it is then only the basis of the deciding panel that finds the one they like to call winner....  Anonymous
