Welcome to The 2019 American Fiction Awards! Sponsored by American Book Fest based in Los Angeles & Phoenix
The 2nd Annual American Fiction Awards (AFA) are a new specialty book awards focused on honoring excellence in FICTION and are specifically designed to not only garner MEDIA COVERAGE & BOOK SALES for the winners & finalists but to PROMOTE awarded books to the PUBLISHING & ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRIES!
The publishing industry is rapidly evolving and American Fiction Awards puts your book in the center of the action!
A printed book is no longer just a printed book.
Fiction books have the potential to be turned into interactive e-books, television and movie programs, video games, graphic novels, web series, and so much more.
Located in the heart of Los Angeles, we have the unique advantage of gaining access to both the publishing and entertainment industries like no other book award program currently operating.
You’ve put tremendous time and energy into your work. Make sure you give your book the best shot at success on all levels.
Enter Your 2017-2019 Titles! Open to all books with an ISBN and published in 2019 (galley copies welcome). 2017 and 2018 titles are also eligible.
We Pick Winners! AFA was created by the same team that launched the “Best Book Awards” 15 years ago. Hundreds of titles have received national media coverage and increased sales as a direct result of placing in our existing book award programs (Best Book Awards & International Book Awards)! Many titles that have placed in our other award programs have gone on to place in other contests geared toward the independent press.
Extensive Media & Social Media Coverage! Our Facebook page went viral with over 9.4 million combined post views in the immediate two weeks following the 2015 Best Book Award announcement.
History of Excellence! Over the last 15 years we have featured over twenty thousand books from mainstream, indie and self-publishers. We will continue to promote books to the national and international book buying public!
