I'll be blogging over at the We CAN! Market our Books blog on the next few Tuesdays. I'd love for you to stop by--the bloggers there always have some wonderful things to say about creative book promotion from a Christian perspective.
And check this out: Word Harvest Books, a national publisher of inspirational print, kicked off the Book Dream National Tour on October 16, 2006 in search of the next bestselling inspirational author. The Producer of YES FM describes the Tour as "Reality TV without the TV."
The Book Dream Tour is now accepting applications for 100 interview slots for inspirational unpublished books, manuscripts and outlines. The publisher will select 25 writers from the initial interviews for a second interview and coaching session ($250 value). Then the publisher will select 10 writers after the second interview for a professional manuscript review ($250 value). From the 10 manuscript reviews, the publisher will offer one writer a publishing contract. To submit the online application, interested writers can go here.
Don't know anything about the publisher, but it sounds really neat! :)
