This is turning into an expensive day for me. I think Secret Visions has the potential to make a difference in the world, so I paid a $185 registration fee to Nautilus Book Awards in the Young Adult Fiction category. The submission deadline is January 30, 2016, and winners are announced in May, 2016. I also believe enough in my book to pay $99 to submit it to the Writer’s Digest Self-Published Awards competition. The deadline for this competition is in May and winners are announced in October 2016. I’ll drop the books off at the post office tomorrow and then buckle down and get busy writing Power Surge. Secret Visions is published through CreateSpace, an Amazon subsidiary.
