MEDIA REVIEWS
"The editors seem to have thought of everything connected with such an involved contest and have broken it down into step-by-step processes. The result is a project that can be replicated for almost any type of author contest." - VOYA
"This book will be of interest to public, school, and academic librarians who seek current program ideas and want to enhance their knowledge of this popular trend in publishing. Highly recommended." - ARBA
