For e-book authors only, an opportunity to get in the AJC

For e-book authors only, here is your chance to get your work into the AJC. You must act immediately, if not sooner.

A journalist with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) is writing a column with summer beach-read recommendations that highlights e-books. She asked the Atlanta Writers Club to compile a list of club members who are fiction e-book authors and another list of those who are nonfiction e-book authors.

This is a race against time, since she needs to complete the article soon. She wants to evaluate the first 10 who respond in each category.

If you are the author of an e-book and would like the AJC to consider highlighting your work, please reply to this e-mail with the following information:

1. Your name (or the pen name you used for your book or books)

2. Your book title(s)

3. The genre for each title (the journalist is interested in featuring works for the YA as well as adult audience)

4. ASIN or other ordering information for each title

5. Whether this was your first time publishing an e-book (she might include a how-to-publish sidebar)

The deadline depends on how fast our members respond, since she’ll consider the first 10 fiction and first 10 nonfiction authors to reply. She’ll make her ultimate selections based on online sales success, reviews, and other means to determine which authors and titles to highlight. This process and her decisions are out of the control of the Atlanta Writers Club, but as the lottery people say, “You gotta play, to win.”

If you’re not a current member of the club, or you haven’t renewed for 2012, this opportunity is another excellent example of a member benefit. If you want to join or renew so you can submit your e-book title(s) for consideration, we’re offering a half-year membership for just $20: click this link to join/renew online.
