Note from Lillie:

I have judged every year since I have been in EPIC, more than ten years. It’s a wonderful way to read some great books for free. I’ve discovered authors I love through judging. The only caveat is that you must maintain absolutely strict confidentiality to maintain the integrity of the competition. You can’t even tell anyone what categories you are judging, certainly not which books. Sometimes judges get so excited about a book they want to tell others—so then we go buy the book so we can spread the word on how great it is.

If you have published a book in ebook format—even if the book is also in print—during the time frame indicated, I encourage you to enter. This competition is the oldest and longest-running e-book competition, and winning or even making the finals can give your book—and your self-confidence—a real boost.
