We don’t want to keep you in suspense any longer. The shortlist with the Top 20 will be published on October 4th and on October 5th we will announce who the 10 finalists will be.
How does the jury decide?
Every book was carefully considered. The further one got, the more jury members read it. Special attention was paid (in addition to text quality) to:
- Your book idea
- Your talent
- The chances of becoming a bestselling author
In the event of a tie, book description, biography, cover and title were the deciding factors.
Sales figures and social media were not taken into account.
Did the jury get it wrong?
Prove the jury wrong and sell more than 300 books through bookstores/online shops, and we will contact you personally to discuss how Thalia and story.one can promote you further.
You can see how well your book is selling by looking at the story.one x Thalia bestseller list.
You will receive exact information about your sales figures (if we don’t get in touch beforehand) in February at the latest for the previous year.
And soon you will find the best book promotion tips on story.one.
