American Book Awards Program

From the website of – Before Columbus Foundation

The American Book Awards Program is not associated with any industry group or trade organization. The American Book Awards offer no cash prize nor do they require any financial commitments from the authors or their publishers. The Award winners are nominated and selected by a panel of writers, editors, and publishers who also represent the diversity of American literary culture.

Submissions

There are no application forms, fees, or any other restrictions for submissions, nominations, or recommendations to the panel. The book is what matters, not the procedure. The only requirement is that two copies of the book must be mailed to the Before Columbus Foundation by December 31st for consideration for the following year’s Awards. Anyone may make a submission (it does not have to be the publisher). There is no limit on the number of titles that may be submitted. All genres are accepted (including anthologies, children’s books, and multimedia).

Wanted – Old Books

Wanted Poster1Was your book published prior to January 1, 2012?

If so, how are the sales for this book?

If it is not doing so well, “Relaunch” it.

In 2015, I will be creating an online magazine that will bring older books to the attention of new readers.

The magazine will be released quarterly:

March, June, September, and December.

This is a FREE magazine.  I will be able to keep it free because I will be selling advertisement space.

 

I am still working out many things to get this magazine off the ground.

If you are interested in showcasing your book in the March 2015 issue, please visit

http://www.cynharris.com/magazine.html

to fill out the information request form

As things get worked out—like a name for the magazine, etc. – I will announce them here on this blog.

Something New For 2015

I have been busy with work, the farm, writing, the grandkids, and all the crafts that I like to do.

This year I have spent time spotlighting authors for Virtual Book Tours.

In 2015, I want to do something new.  I want to take a look at books that no one has seen for a while.

Did you publish a book prior to January 1, 2012?

If so, how is it doing?   Not too many, if any sales these days.

No one wants to buy it.  No one sees it.  It is no longer on the bookshelves.  It is not high on Amazon’s list.

In 2015, I will be creating an online magazine that showcases older books.  This will be a FREE service to authors, promoting your older work.

How can I offer a FREE service like this?

With your help, by spreading the word and me offering “advertising space” in the magazine.

The magazine will be quarterly – March, June, September, December.  It could grow to bi-monthly or even monthly depending on how many books are sent in.

What else will be in the magazine?

  • Book promotion hacks/tips
  • Book marketing hacks/tips
  • Articles pertaining to writing
  • Author Interviews
  • Advertisements
  • And so much more

If this is something you are interested in download the form below, fill it out, and send it to me at

Could he get the victim to help clear him? Upon asking, the victim seems to implicate the friend after all! Could the dead lie to us when we attempt communication? Can the medium really help his buddy?

Book Fair Fun and Give-Away Information

The book fair begins on Sunday, July 21, 2013 and there will again be prizes given away.

We are doing the prizes differently.  Instead of signing up for prizes via Rafflecopter, the participants will need to download the catalog that will be available at Black Lilac Kitty Book Promotion (http://www.blacklilackitty.com) on Sunday and read through/look through the catalog to see how to enter for prize drawings, find book promotion specials, etc.

We thought that many people look for the Rafflecopter sign-up and ignore the purpose of the fair, which is to promote authors and their works.  So, in order to participate in the give-aways, you must at least flip through the catalog.  And hopefully, something in the catalog will catach your eye.

Prizes include:

Books

Gift Cards

Specials on Book Promotion

And other stuff

Hope to see you around the “fair grounds”

Blanca Beyar, a Promotional Book Tour

Blanca-Beyar-Long-1Q:  Would you say writing chose you or you chose writing?

A:  Writing certainly chose me for sure. Looking back at my childhood, I loved to role-play and make-believe that I was an actress! However, I also learned how to read at a very young age but I never thought that my future would include writing books—especially in the genre of Mind/Body/Spirit.

My passion to write emerged through the guidance of an angel that came into my life when I began to explore spirituality. In a meditation, my angel told me that I needed to begin to write. I laughed at the thought of it because I was never very proficient in writing.  Still, I was so captured by the guidance and love that I had received from this luminous angel that I followed his guidance and began to write articles on angelic communication. I found an internet portal that featured spiritual topics and in a short period of time, realized that writing was one of my soul’s passion!         

Q:  Do you write under a pen name?  If ‘yes’, what is your pen name?

A: I  do not write under a pen name but there have been several articles throughout my writing career that feature my guru name, Lavanya.

Q:  What genre do you write?

A:  My genre of writing is Spirituality and Self-Help. I also enjoy composing articles for writers and the “Writing Life” because it allows me to share my own experiences in writing and also allows me to share advice for writers who are just beginning to harness their passion for composition and expression.    

Q:  What is the title of your current book?

A: My current release is entitled, “Attributes of Mastery.” It is an empowering book that can be read by anyone who has a yearning to live a more spiritual and fulfilling life. The book features 21 attributes of living that can be practiced by anyone and who will discover a whole new way of experiencing life when they apply these simple but vital attributes to their lives.
