-- Publishing would be a difficult sea to navigate without independent review sources guiding readers to quality works. For fourteen years, ForeWord Reviews
has exclusively reviewed books from small presses for our readership of librarians, booksellers, and for those who just love to read. Through various services, ForeWord
is positioned to help any and all publishers and writers bring their titles to national and international markets. The following is a list of our author services to help market your title:Book of the Year AwardsForeWord
’s Book of the Year Awards (http://www.forewordreviews.com/
competition provides publishers and writers a valuable opportunity to breathe new life into the promotion of a distinguished title. These fiercely contested awards are viewed by librarians and booksellers as an important statement about a title they might have overlooked. Savvy publishers and resourceful writers have used the gold, silver, and bronze awards as additional marketing material as their titles drift toward the backlist.

We are pleased to introduce our debut fiction competition (http://www.forewordreviews.com/services/foreword-firsts/f...
) As a book review journal, at times we feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of titles we receive for review—many more than we can possibly cover in the magazine. For this reason, ForeWord
is launching a quarterly contest with the goal of highlighting the brightest POD/self-published works we see.
