Does anyone have any knowledge of / experiences with Doce Blant Publishing and their Marie M. Irvine Literary Excellence Award?
Here's the site: http://www.doceblant.com/marie-m-irv...ellence-award/
I write historical fiction, so I was thinking of entering the contest, but I can't afford to throw $$ away.
I notice there are two typos on the award page, which gives me pause. Also, should contests announce their judges' names?
Under Author's Resources, they seem to be drumming up business for marketers, cover designers, etc. whom their authors would have to pay?
I'm new to this business, so I would appreciate any insights/instincts you can pass along. Thank you!
