A little about Carolyn - Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s several careers prepared her for promoting her own books and those of others. She was the youngest person ever hired as a staff writer for the Salt Lake Tribune—“A Great Pulitzer Prize Winning Newspaper”—where she wrote features for the society page and a column under the name of Debra Paige. That gave her insight into the needs of editors, the very people authors must work with to get free ink. Being familiar with the way news is handled helps her see how different books fit into different news cycles.
Carolyn Howard-Johnson speaks at tradeshows, writers' conferences and has appeared on more than 300 TV and radio shows. Her literary writing has won more than a dozen awards between them and The Frugal Book Promoter (Star Publish 2004) won USA Book News' Best Professional Book and the Book Publicists of Southern California's Irwin Award first novel.
Carolyn's newest book is The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success (Red Engine Press 2007), which won USA Book News’ award in the writing category. Cheryl Wright of Writer2Writer.com says, "The Frugal Editor will become a well-used reference for writers around the world."
