Press Release: Self-Published Authors Can Win Cash and Publicity with the North Street Book Prize
The deadline is June 30 to enter the first annual North Street Book Prize for self-published books, sponsored by Winning Writers. Three top winners will each receive $1,500, a credit towards the high-quality publishing services at BookBaby, free advertising in the Winning Writers email newsletter, and expert marketing advice from Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of The Frugal Book Promoter. Winning Writers is one of the 101 Best Websites for Writers (Writer's Digest, 2015).
Winning Writers editor Jendi Reiter will judge the contest, assisted by Ellen LaFleche. The judges note, "More and more, experienced authors are choosing nontraditional routes to find readers. However, most prizes for published books still exclude the self-published, sticking them with an outdated stigma of amateurism. Through the North Street Book Prize, we hope to boost the visibility of excellent writers whose books simply didn't fit into the big conglomerates' marketing plans."
