Book Awards

That Readers Trust.

Search for literary awards or book contests and it’s getting increasingly harder to sort the proverbial wheat from the chaff.  It’s easy to find a list of book awards  but which ones are worth entering? The Millennium Book Award is now in its 7th year and continues to grow in popularity amongst authors across the world. It receives entries from traditional publishing houses and self-published authors and each book is considered on merit. 



Inaugurated in 2014 the Millennium Book Award continues to be an enormously popular book award for authors of all genres. Recognising and celebrating the best in literature and the most exciting reads from publishing house and indie published authors the 2020 Millennium Book Award will be our 7th consecutive award. More importantly we remain true to the principles on which the award was founded. Big names don’t sway us, nor do big marketing budgets or slick covers. It’s the writing that wins our award.
