A Little Brag: A Big Resource for Writers

Military Writers Society of America member reviewers independently nominate books for awards using a scoring system each year—a very good reason for writers to join the group besides the access to a review! That's especially valuable for first-time authors. And they welcome writers of every ilk (military or non military), so why not? You should see how they publicize both winners and nominees!

Two of my books were nominated, my chapbook of poetry She Wore Emerald Then with Magdalena ball, and A Retailer’s Guide to Frugal In-Store Promotions. Winners will be announced on Veterans Radio Network ( on July 31 at 9am Eastern time.

Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of This Is the Place; Harkening: A Collection of Stories Remembered; Tracings, a chapbook of poetry; and how to books for writers including, The Frugal Book Promoter: How To Do What Your Publisher Won't; The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success; and Great Little Last Minute Editing Tips for Writers . She is also the author of the Amazon Short, "The Great First Impression Book Proposal". She has three FRUGAL books for retailers including A Retailer’s Guide to Frugal In-Store Promotions: How To Increase Profits and Spit in the Eyes of Economic Downturns with Thrifty Events and Sales Techniques.
