Three Winners to Have Their Books Published, Marketed and Promoted
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Feb. 2, 2009) – Wordclay, (www.wordclay.com) in association with its partner at the
WritingRoom.com’s 2009 Author’s Choice Writing contest. Authors who submit
their manuscripts to
www.PublishingRoom.com will have them judged by a three-expert panel
for the chance to win free marketing and promotional services. The awards include:
- The grand prize winner will have their book read and considered by top New York
literary agent Loretta Barrett and considered for publication by editor Eric Raab
of Tor/Forge Books.
- The top three finishers will have their manuscripts published, marketed and promoted.
- Each author judged in the top ten among submissions will receive manuscript improvement
assistance from acclaimed bestselling author Jon Land – panel member and author
of The Seven Sins, one of Library Journal’s Top Five Thrillers of 2008.
“We at WritingRoom are very excited to offer this great opportunity to aspiring
writers,” said Lindsay Preston, CEO of the Writing Room. “The top ten authors will
have the experience of a lifetime speaking and learning from best-selling author
Jon Land. The education he will give each author will be invaluable.”
"An incredible opportunity for writers in this increasingly difficult climate for
publishing.” said Jon Land, author of The Seven Sins and the forthcoming Strong
Enough to Die (May 2009). “I get the sense that Author Solutions and Publishing
Room are on the cusp of the industry's future and they're offering writers the chance
to come along for the ride. Sometimes dreams really do come true and this is one
of those times."
Preston and Land will be joined on the expert panel by Susan Ludsin, retired English
professor from John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. Authors should visit
for all contest rules and submission timelines.
