Authors' Coalition Readies Third Semi-Annual All-Tips Issue

Glendale, CA—Pssst. Did you know?

That kind of approach has always caught our interest. We look for hot stuff on the stock market, best buys and, of course, better ways to do business. Now that authors find themselves in the positions of promoter and publisher as well as writer, they look for tips, too!

Tips, in fact, are the favorite feature of Authors' Coalition's newsletter, "Sharing with Writers." Founder of the organization, Carolyn Howard-Johnson, is editor of that letter and noticed that correspondence from readers was mostly about tips and more tips. Thus, the first-ever, all-new tips edition was born. After that, subscribers asked for more and the tips edition become a semi-annual event.

Authors' Coalition members are always encouraged to participate in the letter, to share with their fellows by sending articles and news. They came out in droves for this issue and the edition may need to become a two-part newsletter. Before September has waned, the third semi-annual edition will hit the email boxes of subscribers.

Authors' Coalition's site is under construction but interested authors may subscribe to the letter at http://authorscoaltionandredeneginepress.com) or do so by sending an e-mail with "subscribe" in the subject line to HoJoNews@aol.com.

The group also offers ad space, fee writing-related e-books, promotional ideas, a bookstore for to showcase their members' books, a blog focused on making humdrum booth at a book fair into a rousing success by using value-added promotions, (http://AuthorsCoalition.blogspot.com ), and more.

Directors of the group are published authors Pat McGrath Avery and Joyce Faulkner.

Howard-Johnson, the editor of "Sharing with Writers," is the author of USA Book News' Best Professional Book and Irwin Award winnner, The Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won't. Hew new is release, The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success .

Among the sponsors of Authors' Coalition are WebforAuthors.com and Red Engine Press.

Thank you, Connie, for notifying your blog readers about my newsletter. I'm planning a new special edition soon--one on marketing. It will be a little more serious marketing oriented, rather than promo oriented. Then I'm thinking of doing an Improve Your Editing edition, too. To celebrate the release of The Frugal Editor at Amazon. (-:
