Winning Writers Announces Winners for Their North Street Book Prize!

Lots of my SharingwithWriters and TheNewBookReview subscribers and visitors know that I believe in contests, but more importantly, I believe in choosing contests that offer more than a flashy logo to use on their books and in their social networking (though those are nice, too!).  Many contests are expensive, but some--even some of the expensive ones are worth the money if they offer benefits.  One of the ones I support--avidly--is #NorthStreetBookPrize from the Writer's Digest acclaimed! They just announced their winners who received the traditional logo/sticker, of course, but also a gift certificate from and an hour's consultation from me!  So here is some great reading and networking possibilities for NewBookReview readers, reviewers, publishers, authors, and publicists!

Here are the North Street Book Prize winners.  Read and enjoy! Look them up! And check the #NorthStreetBookPrize coming for 2019 at

 The New Book Review is blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. Of particular interest to readers of this blog is her most recent How to Get Great Book Reviews Frugally and Ethically ( ) that covers 325 jam-packed pages covering everithing from Amazon vine to writing reviews for profit and promotion. Reviewers will have a special interest in the chapter on how to make reviewing pay, either as way to market their own books or as a career path--ethically!

This blog is a free service offered to those who want to encourage the reading of books they love. That includes authors who want to share their favorite reviews, reviewers who'd like to see their reviews get more exposure, and readers who want to shout out praise of books they've read. Please see submission guidelines on the left of this page. Reviews and essays are indexed by genre, reviewer names, and review sites. Writers will find the search engine handy for gleaning the names of small publishers. Find other writer-related blogs at Sharing with Writers and The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor.

Note: Participating authors and their publishers may request the social sharing image by Carolyn Wilhelm at no charge.  Please contact the designer at:  cwilhelm (at) thewiseowlfactory (dot) com. Provide the name of the book being reviewed and--if an image or headshot of the author --isn't already part of the badge, include it as an attachment. Wilhelm will send you the badge to use in your own Internet marketing. Give Wilhelm the link to this post, too!
