Bloomington, IND (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
WestBow Press, the strategic self-publishing division of the world’s largest Christian publisher, today announced Steve Gillis as the Grand Prize Winner of its Wow2Win Twitter contest, which celebrated the release of Michael Hyatt’s latest book, “Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World.” “Platform” debuted on the “New York Times” bestseller list and also reached #4 on Amazon’s best seller list for the week ended May 27.
As the Grand Prize winner, Gillis will receive a one-hour private consultation with the Thomas Nelson chairman to discuss the best ways to market his future book. Additionally, the 1st place winner, Zach Sewell will receive a Bookstore Advantage Publishing Package from WestBow Press and the five runners-up will receive a free copy of “Platform.” The Wow2Win contest challenged authors to explain why their book is great and “wow-worthy,” in a single 140-character tweet, which also had to include the contest hashtag #wow2win.
Hyatt, who’s also a well-known professional speaker and the founder of the widely read “Intentional Leadership” blog wrote “Platform” to help authors navigate social media and learn to use it effectively when marketing their book.
