Recognizing the Authors – And the winner is…

As part of our ongoing efforts to develop the content on this site by authors and for authors and to support and reward those that take the time out of their busy days to put pen to prose and prose to email, we are excited to launch this feature!

Watch for exciting updates and surprise recognition posts as more authors join and more articles come in for publication.

As of the date of this post, there are 16 published posts and 11 pending!  We also set up menus and pages of the same posts to make searching for something you need easier and have acquired informative articles in the topics of Publishing, Writing, Marketing and of course What is AHA and the guidelines for getting your article published here.

The site was launched on March 11, 2013 and has already grown so much thanks to all of you:

MOST ARTICLES SUBMITTED TO DATE:

1st Place is a tie!  We’ll recognize both authors and make special note of thanks to Mercy for submitting her 1st article, literally just hours before Stefan and the 4th, again, literally hours before Stefan.  Neck and neck you guys – whose going to break the tie?

Mercy Pilkington is the CEO of Author Options, a full-service solutions provider for authors and publishers. Her sense of humor leans a bit to the sarcastic side, hence her overuse of the word crap. She is looking for romance titles that do not involved chiseled men with giant penises, and no more vampires unless there is something stunningly different about them that doesn’t involve sparkling.  www.authoroptions.com authoroptionslogo
