At the winning blog, writers of all types are invited to send questions to Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success. Carolyn answers questions in her imitable, colloquial and sometimes irreverent style–and, when she doesn’t know the answer to a question, she finds an expert who does!
This is the second award Howard-Johnson has received for her blogs this year. Brian A. Klems, online managing editor at Writer’s Digest, recently named her Sharing with Writers blog to his magazine’s 101 Best Websites in 2008 only last month. Klems notes that the blog is full of “cheap ways to promote your book” but also mentions her Sharing with Writers newsletter as a source for writers. (See the June, 2008, Issue of Writer’s Digest magazine, p. 54).
Howard-Johnson is a multi-title, award-winning author. She has appeared on TV and hundreds of radio stations nationwide. She is also is an instructor for UCLA Extension’s Writers’ Program. Her book , the Frugal Book Promoter, was named USA Book News’ Best Professional Book and earned the Book Publicists of Southern California’s Irwin award.
