QUALIFICATIONS OF THE WORK(s): Works must be published and available to the general public in 2015. Works may be traditionally published or self-published, either in paper or digital form.

Works must be available to readers through at least two (2) of the normal channels; e.g., Amazon, B&N, Kindle, Nook, etc. This does not include publication on blogs, newsletters, on-line groups, etc.

Authors may enter only one (1) title per category.  

There must be at least three (3) nominated entries per category for that category to be included on the Lovey ballot. If there are less than three (3) nominated entries in any particular category, the authors of the nominated books in that category will be contacted to ask if they want to have their book placed in a different category.

It is understood by all parties that by submitting a title for consideration of an award, the creator and holder of the copyright of any entered works gives to the LIM board permission to publicize the entry and use its title, excerpts, and author's name in promotion of the Lovey Awards prior to and for the duration of the conference as they see fit.
