Show-January 19, 2012 - Book Awards and Book Reviews ... Which Are for You?

Authors want to know ... should they spend the money to enter a book award contest ... and if they do, which are the ones for them ... and their book? Join Judith and her guest Ellen Reid, the founder of the Indie Excellence Awards, as they explore the wide-wide world of Book Awards. There are so many beckoning for your marketing (yes book awards are part of your marketing budget), which is for you ... and which should be avoided. Book awards have become big money makers for their backer—do they deserve your dollars? In the second half hour, Judith’s guest will be Patti Thorn, the managing partner of BlueInk Reviews. BlueInk was created for the self-publishing and independent markets. Should you pay for a review? What happens once you get one? What if it’s—gulp—not so hot? And so much more. Another lively hour on Your Guide to Book Publishing with Dr. Judith Briles at 6 pm EST, author of Show Me About Book Publishing.
