Economic Downturn Makes Frugal Promotion Message Essential

I feel as if this honor should go to those of you who are Sharing with Writers readers. And, in a way, this post is just another reminder of the free gifts for writers that Authors Access brings to writers all year long. Of course they need the help of generous (and promotion-minded) writers like the ones mentioned in this release, too!

Sought-After Guest Soars on Authors Access Radio


Frugal Message Hits Top Spot for AuthorsAccess Listeners

Ann Arbor, MI--Cohosts of Authors Access radio, Victor R. Volkman and Irene Watson, announced multi award-winning author Carolyn Howard-Johnson was the #1 most popular guest on AuthorsAccess.com podcasts for the year 2008.

Volkman says, "With more than 1,000 listeners this year, Carolyn again proved the lasting power of her Frugal Book Promotion message. Not only is her message popular, but it's way out in front of all the other guests, the 2nd most popular podcast was 20% behind Carolyn's. We wish Carolyn continued success in 2009 and we are certain her message will become even more important as economic turmoil continues."

This is the 2nd year that Howard-Johnson has starred at AuthorsAccess. In 2007 she was also among the most listened to among industry luminaries and gurus such as Mark David Gerson, Jacqueline Church, and JC Simonds.
