Literary Titan Book Award
Gertie Saves the Day is now listed among Award Winning Children’s Picture Books. The Literary Titan Gold Award is awarded to books that were found to be perfect in their delivery of the original content, meticulous development of unique characters in an organic an striking setting, an innovative plot that supports a fresh theme, and elegant prose that transforms words into beautifully written books (Thomas Anderson).
What was the award submission process like?
The submission process is very simple for authors. On their website you can complete a quick application, upload your book and pay the application fee. I received my letter regarding the book review in about 5-6 weeks. Gertie Saves the Day received a 5 Gold Star Review!
The author interview gives readers a chance to get to know you as an author and more about your book and illustrations. I found the questions to be thoughtful and interesting for their readers. I received a link directly to the interview and I think you will find my responses of interest.
Gertie Saves the Day received the Gold Literary Titan Book Award. You can imagine my excitement. I could not wait to share the news with family and friends. Ordering a certificate and some gold medallions to place on the book cover was the next and final step. Gertie Saves the Day is an Amazon Best Seller, and is now among the Award Winning Children’s Picture Books, which is this author’s dream!
The Importance of Children’s Picture Book Awards
Award winning children’s picture books are important for many reasons and for many different consumers. Book awards acknowledge the author and all of the hard work that went into writing the book. Children’s book publishers, writers, and illustrators use award winning books as examples of what is considered to be “the best”. Book awards help introduce new readers to award winning books through exposing books to larger audiences. Teachers and librarians look for these award winning books to share with children in and out of the classroom. Parents, grandparents and other readers may also rely on these award when selecting children’s picture books.
This is not the first book review and author interview that Gertie Saves the Day has received. You can read more in this blog post. Please feel free to leave me a comment or questions about the Literacy Titan Book Awards. I am always happy to help my fellow writers.
Until next time …
