ABNA Books April Newsletter is Online

| 0 comments

One of the gifts to come out of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award experience has been the community of writers. Although the forums on the Amazon.com site will most likely disappear after Amazon announces the winner on April 7th, the ABNA authors will have a permanent home on www.ABNABooks.com

ABNA Books currently has over 80 authors participating on the site, 55 authors on the forum, over 69 published books and 75 not-yet-published books.

This month’s ABNA Books online newsletter features the first column by ABNA Books feature columnist Ian Thomas Healy, as well as new columns by ABNA authors Rebecca Crandell and Tom Maremaa. We have several other “firsts,” as we feature an author interview with April L. Hamilton, who is paving new ground with her IndieAuthor movement. We also have Leah Davidson’s Book Review of 78 Reasons Why Your Book May Never Be Published And 14 Reasons Why It Just Might, by Pat Walsh.

Be sure to check out the newest featured published and not-yet-published books by ABNA authors, and stay tuned for the latest news.
