Q: I have a book that doesn’t fit any of the recommended categories. Where should I put it?

A: We attempt in all our contests to avoid having a category for every possibility. Thus, if you feel your book does not fit in one of our general categories, please enter it as a “wild card,” which is designed for books that do not neatly fit into other areas.

Q: Why do I mail my book to a Los Angeles address?

A: Our main headquarters is based in Los Angeles, although our judges are located in many places.

Q: Are books from any publication date eligible?

A: Yes. We feel that the overcrowded publishing marketplace overlooks many fine works. Thus, our goal is to spotlight works that deserve another look without the artificial constraint of a specific year of publication.

Q: How do you manage to read all the books that are submitted?

A: We review entries on an ongoing basis, comparing earlier entries with later arrivals. Our judges are constantly arguing the merits of the works, and many last-minute submissions have won our past events.

Q: I’ve never heard of this event. How do I know this is not a scam?

A: We have been in business since 1999 and stand by our track record of first-class productions. Please feel free to Google us for past success stories.

Q: Does the festival guarantee that I’ll get a film/TV/video game deal?

A: The festival was devised because we realized that many authors wished to get their works reviewed by producers, and many producers did not want to handle unsolicited material. Because of our Hollywood location and our various events throughout town, we realized a happy medium existed to bring these two camps together. However, there are no guarantees that you’ll get instant success. What we will guarantee is that we make our winners available to our network of contacts and constantly promote our list to our entertainment industry contacts.
Hollywood is located in Los Angeles, in case you didnt know.
