The Times ran an article today on the new Blooker Prize.
The Blooker Prize is specifically a competition for printed books (including self published efforts) borne directly out of a blog, whether as a straight conversion, or an extension.
The Times mentions a central core of some 109 titles, however the award originators, the online self publishing site Lulu.com, are accepting entries up to a deadline in January 2006. First prize is worth $2,000.
The full details are HERE.
If your masterpiece suffers from lack of exposure, this could be a wonderful opportunity.
