Judges… We can’t do this without you, quite literally, and so we want to reward you in any way we can. (And, if you prefer, you can be totally ANONYMOUS.)

One way we can show our appreciation of you is to promote you and your blog or your service or your book club or whatever it is that makes you more than just a reader of ebooks and someone who wants an active stake in promoting great writing. We do this through featuring you as a judge on a separate blog post with links to your blog or website of your choice.

We also have Global eBook Awards stickers that you can use for your blog should you choose to announce that you are a judge with us. We STRONGLY encourage you to make such an announcement because it will bring people to our site and expose them to many categories and many new voices in the literary world. While we welcome publishers of all size, we want this contest to be a place where self-publishers can stand alongside other authors on an equal footing with an equal shot at exposure and recognition.

If you would like to do this, please provide the items below the best you can. This will be edited by us and then sent to you for editing/approval.

We’re not going to be giving out your email address unless you tell you want us to, but keep in mind you might be getting frustrated emails from authors if you do.

We will put together the announcement together for you based on the info you provide. This is our old format, but the new format will have the same spirit as we had for our first judge Danny O. Snow, Our First eBook Awards Judge

Again, if you have any questions, let us know!

Thanks and we WELCOME YOU!

  1. Well if you want something done, ask a busy man to do it.
    Although I put down I would like to be a judge in the Sci-Fi category. I guess I would really be a better judge in the area of murder mystery, police stories or anything else in the crime area. Why? Simple I have been a detective for the past 25/30 years. I’m still a detective with a sheriff’s department in Northern California. But I write Sci-Fi stories… go figure. Why… police and crime is tedious. Sci-Fi is…well a better fiction. So I will leave it up to you to decide where or how you would like to have me enter as a judge.
    Question: Am I disqualified to enter my own book since if I become a judge?

      Hi Elton,

      We have decided that it’s fine for judges to be in the contest, but that they can’t judge their own category. This way they can’t throw the results by voting against their strongest competitors strategically or figuring out other ways to otherwise influence the results in their own favor.

      So, YES you can be a judge in the category you want if it’s in a category that you have not entered.

    I picked categories where I have some expertise but not my own book category.

    I hope my bio is what you’re looking for.

    I wasn’t sure if I was giving you the correct link for my book blurb. I gave you the link for the excerpt page on my own site. Let me know if I can give you anything else.
