'Hiding in Water: A Memoir Based Mostly in Reality' by Katherine Lippa
Jan. 23, 2013 - PRLog -- PORTLAND, Maine. At a time when the United States is approaching an average of 400,000 published books per year, new author Katherine Lippa is utilizing an innovative way to stand out from the crowd. Her Word-of-Mouth Crew is designed to pay back readers for doing what they like to do: suggest books to their friends.

As Lippa says, “I can only take credit for using the idea, not coming up with it. Last year, I found the website of another author, T.L. Hines; he’s the one who thought up the idea. To me, it seemed far less invasive than spamming people. This way, people can read the book, and if they like it, they can get something in exchange for taking the time to recommend it.”

The top Word-of-Mouth Crew Member will receive 10% of the author’s net royalties from ‘Hiding in Water: A Memoir Based Mostly in Reality,’ up to $5,000, from February 1, 2013 through April 30, 2013. In addition, that person will receive a sneak peek at the author’s next book, an iPod Nano with the audiobook for Hiding in Water pre-loaded, and a namesake character in the author’s upcoming novel.
