Updated June 12, 2012
Believe it or not, this is our tenth year doing the Contest Calendar, and it is more popular every year. There was an addition error on the flyer and on the site, so the price for the CWCC is not $23.57 as marked but totals $22.47. We appologize for any inconvenience or confusion that this may cause. I have updated the PDF Order Form.
We have already started the data collection for the 2012 edition, and posted the PDF for pre-orders as well. We are even busier this year, but thanks to the great people at Recovery Force, the database from last year was recovered from the burnt-out hard drive and we have successfully learned to write enough SQL to transfer all the data into Open Office Base. The database will no longer be available at the whim of whether or not the program will be supported, but now is part of a world-wide communtiy movement. You can download the order form here and send it in.
Always check for your contest, make sure it is still operating, and that the deadline is where you thought it would be. Then check again at least a month before the deadline to confirm that there haven't been any other changes. And if there are, please send me an email, or a note to let us know. Let us know if you hear of any new opportunities as well. Check the Update page during the year.
Full CONTEST information is in the book. The complete 2012 Book Awards listings can be obtained directly from the Award sponsors. There has not been a large call for all this information to be posted on this website, so unless I hear differently from you, we will not be posting the Awards page. It's good to know what awards are there and and when their deadlines are. There is an incredible variety of awards. Newest awards we noticed were for blogs, online magazines and graphic novels. Most of the Awards programs need submissions of your published book from your publisher, not the author. With smaller presses, it may be helpful to gently inquire as to whether your book will be submitted. The sizes of some of those prizes would make it feel more like winning a lottery-but they are given out, and if you qualify, your name should be in the hat. It's good for book sales, and general publicity. And possibly for your pocketbook as well.
The more places we can submit our work, the better we all become.
Hope you are having a wonderful writing year.
Many thanks for your support.
