The writer-publisher – part 36

Your blog-based book could earn a "Blook" prize

The world’s first literary prize for books based on blogs, or “blooks,” is being launched today by its sponsor, Lulu (www.lulu.com). According to Lulu, “blooks” are the fastest growing new kind of book – and the hottest new publishing and online trend.

I’ve already entered Danger Quicksand – Have A Nice Day in the non-fiction competition for “The Blooker Prize."

The competition runs for several months and offers cash prizes for the winners. Read about it here.

Cory Doctorow — noted author, speaker, and activist who co-edits BoingBoing, the world’s most linked-to blog.–will chair a team of three prominent Internet figures who will judge the inaugural prize. 

If you don’t already have a book based on your blogging, then get busy and write one! This should be the beginning of some very interesting activity.
