Free Times invites authors to promote their books

The Free Times, Columbia's alternative weekly newspaper, has launched a new feature, "Arts Desk Inbox - S.C. Authors, S.C. Books" to help authors promote their books. Each week the newspaper will carry short items about books either written by local authors or about local topics, with local interpreted "broadly to include parts of South Carolina outside the Midlands -- and maybe occasionally outside the state borders, but somewhere in the South." Print books, e-books, commercially published, self-published, fiction, nonfiction -- all will be considered. Read the complete announcement and find out how to submit your book. Via: Free Times
