The Connections eMagazine Reader's Choice Award is open to all independently published authors and their work. This is an annual award. The winners will be featured in the August issues of the magazine. Authors can be nominated by anyone who has read the novel during the past year. If you have not read the book, please refrain from nominating it. Books will be rated in four areas and can be Fiction or Non-Fiction.


Participants will be allowed one vote per day. Come back often and vote for your favorite entry. Voting begins July 10, 2022 and will end July 23, 2022 at midnight MST. Be sure to subscribe to get updates when each new issue is published.

Books will be scored by independent judges on the criteria listed below. Once the finalists have been selected, the public voting will begin. There are five areas books will be judged, public voting is only one of those. Once the voting ends, all scores will be combined and the final winners will be selected.

PLEASE REMEMBER... the public vote is only one of the five scores. An author may win the popular vote but not win the competition once the other scores are factored in. Popular winners (highest scores in the public voting phase) will be announced in the 3rd quarter edition of the magazine.
