HowToDoItFrugally Author Helps Writers Extend Life of Great Book Reviews
Sometimes a review so good comes along that authors are loathe to let it die. They might include it in their media kit or add it to their websites. Now its life can be extended even further with Carolyn Howard-Johnson's blog, The New Book Review.
Here is a review blog that doesn't judge a book by its cover or by the press used to print it. If one reviewer loved a book, that qualifies it for more coverage. Authors are asked to follow the guidelines given in the left column of the blog and, in return, are asked only to let their fans and the media know it is there. That helps expose every review on the blog (a cross-promotion of sorts) and gives authors an opportunity to reach out to the public.
Howard-Johnson is the founder of Authors' Coalition (http://authorscoaltionandredeneginepress.com), and this blog (www.TheNewBookReview.blogspot.com) is an extension of how this group reaches out to help authors including a free e-book section on the site and more. Directors are Pat McGrath Avery and Joyce Faulkner (www.redenginepress.com).
Howard-Johnson is an instructor for UCLA Extension's Writers' Program and the award-winning author of literary fiction and poetry. She is also the author of USA Book News' Best Professional Book and Irwin Award winner, The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won't, and the soon-to-be-released The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success.
Curious readers and writers will find reviews of works by authors like Yvonne Perry, Erica Stux, Joyce Anthony and Cheryl Kaye Tardiff who wrote the famous Whale Song. It includes reviews by well-known reviewers like Mayra Calvani and historians like Marshall Trimble.
