QUARTER FINALIST IN THE BOOK LIFE CONTEST
RAGE was selected as a quarter finalist in the book life contest. Here is the prize timeline from the BookLife Prize website:
“The BookLife Prize runs from March 1, 2017, to December 18, 2017, with the Contest divided into four rounds:
First Round (March 1, 2017, to August 31, 2017): All novels submitted to the BookLife Prize will be initially judged by the professional book reviewers of Publishers Weekly. Each submission will receive an evaluation called a Critic’s Report. Each Critic’s Report consists of a brief written critical assessment of the novel, as well as a rating — on a one to 10 scale — of the book’s strengths and weaknesses in the following categories: Characterization, Plot, Prose/Style, Originality, and Overall Strength. The submissions with the 10 highest scores in each genre will move to the quarter-finals. The quarter-finalists will be announced on BookLife on September 22, 2017.
Quarter-Finals (September 1, 2017, to October 1, 2017): All submissions advancing to the quarter-finals will be critically assessed by the editorial staffs of Publishers Weekly and BookLife. Of the quarter-finalists, five from each of the seven categories will be selected based on merit by PW and BookLife’s editors to advance to the semifinals. The semi-finalists will be announced on BookLife on October 2, 2017.
