The book chosen will be selected from the top five books entered in the competition.

Entry for the Diamond Book Award

The entry fee is £10.00 for which I will invoice you through Paypal if your application is successful. This is non-refundable. Entry for the current year closes on 30th September. Entry after the 30th of September is applied to the following year. The judging panel’s decision then takes place and the winner is announced shortly after.

Note: this fee is for entry to the Diamond Book Award, not for a review. All reviews are honest reviews as per Amazon guidelines; We cannot guarantee a five-star review.

PS: I strongly recommend that you look through at least several, if not all my reviews to get a feel for the types of things I look for when reading a work. I also go into some detail about my reviews on my Raves & Reviews page.

I may request a mobi file of your book to share with the panel, Other than this, I do not accept unsolicited manuscripts or books files in any way, shape or form!
