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 ( 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.
