Win seven – yes, SEVEN – paperback books!


backword_blue-247x300 Backword Books is running a contest!!

Grand Prize: A package of seven books by Backword authors: Homefront by Kristen Tsetsi, Spam & Eggs by Andrew Kent, The Brightest Moon of the Century by Christopher Meeks, Threshold by Bonnie Kozek, Broken Bulbs by Eddie Wright, Waiting for Spring by RJ Keller, and North of Sunset by Henry Baum.

Second Prize: 1 of each goes to 7 different entrants.

The rules: We want to hear your thoughts about self-publishing – a blog post about the merits of self-publishing and how it might change the face of publishing in the future.   What will self-publishing look 25 years from now, 50 years from now?  How has self-publishing made strides in recent years?  That sort of thing.  The drawbacks of self-publishing are welcome as well, but a scathing attack on self-publishing probably isn’t going to do it for us.  Basically, we want to know: What’s your opinion about self-publishing?

The main requirements for the contest are:

1. The post links back to www.backwordbooks.com, as well as the URL for this contest.

2.  We’d also like to hear which book you’d most like to receive from our list – perhaps where you heard about the book first and why it interests you. This will help us choose where to send books for second prize winners.

Please let us know of your entry because we want to compile them all in one place.  We’ll judge entries based on…well, purely subjectively: what we think is a good, well-reasoned post.  We hope it’s a good way to get a discussion about self-publishing spreading throughout the blogosphere.

Deadline for the contest is September 30Click here for more details.

Thanks, good luck and have fun!
