If you're an author in Connecticut, this might be a great opportunity for some free publicity. A Directory of CT Authors and literary venues is being complied. Ad space is also available. The directory listings are free.
From Patricia D'Ascoli, publisher of The CT Muse:
The deadline for listing information for the Directory of CT Authors is fast approaching, so please send in your information if you would like to be included if you have not already done so. Here are the guidelines:
Town of Residence
List up to three works
50 Word Biography
This Directory is being produced with the help of a grant from the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism. It is a matching grant, however, which requires that I raise an equal amount of money toward publication of the Directory. This will be accomplished by way of advertisements.
If anyone would like to advertise in the Directory, it will go a long way toward helping this become a reality! The Directory will be widely distributed throughout the state (tourism districts, arts councils, libraries, bookstores, etc.) and will also be available as a downloadable pdf version for even greater distribution.
Here are the ad rates:
Quarter Page: $100
Half Page: $175
Full Page: $350
Premium Page: $500 (back cover, front and back inside covers)
Please encourage your publishers to consider advertising if you have a new book coming out in 2007.
I am also asking anyone who would like a copy of the Directory mailed to them directly, to please send me a check for $7.50 to cover shipping and handling.
Thanks again for all your support!
Patricia D'Ascoli, Publisher
Also, I'll have the results of the Shocklines Rocks contest for you very soon. Been a "little" busy here, but I'll have them for you later this week. Good luck!
