Award-Winning Author Continues Trend
Author-Publicist’s New Book Garners
Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s newest book, The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won’t, was named “Reviewer’s Choice Masterpiece on Word Museum.com.
Lori Soard,reviewer for Word Museum and author of the award-winning FIERY SURRENDER picked FRUGAL for Word Museum’s lineup of reviewers’ favorites. Kim Cox is editor and manager of the site.
Howard-Johnson, an instructor at UCLA Extension’s Writers’ Program, chose to have the book published 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, The Frugal Book Promoter assures an author’s book the best possible start in life. Full of nitty-gritty how-tos for getting nearly free publicity, the author shares her professional experience as well as practical tips gleaned from the successes of her own book campaigns. Also a former publicist, she tells authors how to do what their publishers can’t or won’t and why authors can often do their own promotion better than a PR professional.
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.
