How to submit your book
Reviews and Judging
Books are assigned to Authors Talk About It reviewers and the review and area ratings and overall number of stars will be emailed to the author (or representative) within 4-6 weeks after submission. Ratings range from 2-5 stars. Anything less than 3 stars is written as a critique with helpful comments as well as pointing out the positives of the book. Though we do not give 1 star ratings, the reviews are honest and when necessary, are meant to offer constructive criticism.
Star ratings are based on the following areas:
Appearance – cover, chapter headings, images/illustrations, etc.
Plot/Concept – consistent tone, clear theme, etc.
Development – realism, smooth progression, organization, etc.
Description of Scenes or Concepts – vividness, smooth transitions, etc.
Grammar/Typos – well written or numerous errors
Target Fit – good fit for the target audience
Overall – an average of the above 6 areas
The staff of Authors Talk About It will select five finalists. They will then make a final decision on winners after comparing the ratings in the six main areas and the overall ratings.
