Young Adult Book Awards

The following are a few of the awards given out to young adult books and authors every year. If you find out about other young adult book awards, please let me know and I will add them to this page.

The following book awards list was sent to me in early 2009 courtesy of Jeff Rivera, author of Forever My Lady. Please note that some of the links are now out-of-date. If you find new links or updates, email John Kremer at: JohnKremer@bookmarket.com.


Why go for awards? Because they will help you sell books. As five-time RITA award-winning author Jo Beverley noted, “Whenever you win, it makes it easier to sell your work.” Similarly Leslie Wagner, senior editor at Silhouette, uses the designation ‘RITA Award-winning author’ on covers whenever she can because “It's one other piece that makes the books stand out in a crowded marketplace.”
