Award-Winning Book to Series
With the coming release of Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s newest book, The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success, she now has the makings of a series of books designed to help writers and others move their careers forward. The series will be the How To Do It Frugally Series, accessible at http://howtodoitfrugally.com.
The first in the series, The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won’t, was named USA Book News “Best Books 2004” in the professional book category and The Book Publicists of Southern California honored it with their Irwin Award. In the works are The Frugal Retailer, The Frugal Amazon Promoter, The Frugal Contester and more.
Howard-Johnson, an instructor for UCLA Extension’s Writers’ Program, publishes the series in both e-book format and paperback in order to give both emerging authors and her struggling students affordable and convenient choices. Whichever format a reader chooses, books in the How To Do It Frugally series are the result of a combination of experience gained through trial and error and the author's professional experience in marketing, PR, journalism and publishing.
The California Legislature recently named Carolyn Woman of the Year in Arts and Entertainment. She is the first author to be so honored.
The e-book version of FRUGAL hit the top sales spot on its online bookstore in a matter of days after its release.
Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s poetry has appeared in literary journals like the Mochila Review, Banyan Review and Poetic Voices and her chapbook of poetry, Tracings, is available on Amazon.com.

Her first novel, This is the Place, and her book of creative nonfiction, Harkening, are also award-winning books. She is a retail editor for Home Décor Buyer, a columnist for Writer's Journal and a sometimes movie reviewer for The Glendale News-Press.
