Literary Classics stands out as an enterprise that doesn’t just “take” from authors. Rather, it gives back—and it does so in the most meaningful way: it recognizes compelling stories, excellently told. When an author earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval, she knows her work met stringent standards, meticulously applied. When she places in the Literary Classics contest, she can be confident that her work stood out from the crowd.
Having won a Literary Classics GOLD medal for Oathtaker, and a SILVER medal for Select, I’ve gained enormous confidence. Not only can I place the beautiful Seal of Approval and awards emblems on my books, but I can also identify myself as an “award-winning author.” (What an honor!) But Literary Classics goes much further. With events scheduled around its annual awards ceremony, authors have the chance to meet and mingle, share resources, learn more about their craft, and attend book shows, signings, and readings. These times of connecting with one another, as well as with current and prospective readers, make all the work worthwhile. I am indebted to Literary Classics and extend to everyone there, my sincerest thanks!
