In July of this year I published a list of 124 Author Contributions that had been published at Magic City Morning Star since we began to concentrate on Book Reviews in November/December 2013.
Each week in Sunday Book Baskets we advise authors that we are prepared to assist them in their book promotions by publishing articles that they may wish to provide us for publication, on a no pay - no charge basis. If authors are happy to provide our readers with something interesting to read, then we are quite happy to help them promote their books. We do this by including in their articles a photograph of the book cover, relevant biographical information and links to purchase pages.
From July to Dec 31st 2014 we have published an additional 58 Author articles, the links for which are provided below.
By July 1st we had featured over 400 new book releases and since that date we have added another 400 book releases.
We also provided 69 Book Reviews between July 1st and December 31st
I have been very honored to have been involved with the publicists and authors involved and I hope that our readership has enjoyed the bonus reading, and I hope that this work will continue after I cease to be the Editor on December 31st.
Thanks to one and all.
