PRLog - Apr. 14, 2010 - LANGLEY, British Columbia -- The first of its kind, this online competition was created by best-selling author James Twyman and Robert Evans and has unexpectedly swept the world with over 2500 entries. The big prize? A publishing contract with Hampton Roads and $50,000 US for marketing. “This has simply become a bonus at the end,” Lauren comments, “it’s really more about the journey as we push ourselves outside of personal comfort zones and boundaries to get our messages out there.”
Five Next Top Authors
A strong writing group, marketing meetings, brainstorming sessions, and laid back gatherings over snacks and tea are only a few items on the agenda for this passionate group of writers…all under the same roof. “This is why we love WindSong Cohousing community so much,” say Susan and Daniel, “where else could anyone encounter such a rich network of supportive community members right outside the door?”
With three exciting books emerging, these up and coming authors are continually exploring innovative new ways to rally votes and collaborate on each book's separate path to publishing. “I enjoy spreading the word and interacting with others on Twitter and Facebook.” Miriam says. “I tweet tips for living in joy and funny one-liners too.” (Miriam’s Twitter ID is feelgreatnaked )
