Douglas Wells (goodreadscomauthordouglaswells) | 8 comments My book has been Awarded Finalist in the Fiction: Literary category of the 2018 International Book Awards. I would like the award to be included. How can I do so? Thank you.

Douglas Wells (goodreadscomauthordouglaswells) | 8 comments Where will this appear?


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7148 comments It is on the book page in the Literary Awards section. That (and other) details can be seen if you click "More Details" below the publish information, in case you do not already have that section expanded.

Douglas Wells (goodreadscomauthordouglaswells) | 8 comments Ok. But I was awarded finalist, not listed as a nominee. See the text below from the email I received, especially the last statement.

Douglas Wells (goodreadscomauthordouglaswells) | 8 comments Sorry to quibble, but this is important to me. I just looked at the awards announcement. Where does it say "nominees?"


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7148 comments This is the way the awards module at Goodreads works.

Douglas Wells (goodreadscomauthordouglaswells) | 8 comments Ok. I just went to the awards page, and the book listed below mine is a nominee for the previous year's award; however, Finalist is included in parentheses.

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7148 comments I expanded the description on the award page for clarification. As only finalists for this award are shown as nominees, there is no need for further clarification.
