I just ran across this link for the Creative Arts Council's 2012 Self-Published Fiction Book Award Contest.
The grand prize is $500, second $100, and there is also an honorable mention. Click on over for the rules. Entries must be postmarked by November 30, 2011.
The contest is open to all fiction books (self) published or revised and reprinted in 2005 through 2011. They are accepting printed and bound books to which the author owns all rights, and judging primarily on content and writing quality. No handwritten books are accepted.
For all the details and fine print, please click on over to the Creative Arts Council's website.
Good luck to all the entrants!
