Important Book Prize! Any Year Publication! Deadline Coming!

Dear Subscribers,

As a reminder, I’m a proud co-sponsor of the North Street Book Prizefor self-published books. As you know, I have trusted WinningWriters to vet contests for my literary work for a more than a decade now and love to support contests that are no only ethical but also offer added value as part of their entry fee.  I encourage you to enter! The deadline is June 30. Everyone who enters will receive a digital copy of my book, The Frugal Book Promoter, and the top six winners will also receive personalized consultations from me.
