We have now 800+ chapters running across the nation and in 15 foreign countries.
We are an international book club!
Here are my NEW guidelines for submitting a book for Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy Book Club consideration:
Attention Authors, Publishers, Publicists!
Due to the increasing amount of books being sent for consideration for my Pulpwood Queen Book Club, I have two ways you can ensure your book will be read.
First, join my book club.
It is only a $50 one-time payment to join the book club as an author.
You will be joining the largest “meeting and discussing” book club in the world and an excellent way of networking with real readers besides supporting our author community.
Joining does not guarantee that your book will be selected but that I will read it first in the order of Author members books that come. You do NOT have to join to have me read your book, but again, I do read our Author Member books first as they are invested in our reading program.
I only notify authors that I select for Official reads, so be sure to include all your contact information if you submit a book.
If you wish to know the types of books that I select for my book club chapters, here are the criteria:
• The book must be well written.
• The book must be about a subject that has not been covered before in our almost 20 years of readings.
• I love to help the first time, first book authors and those yet undiscovered.
I need your publicist or publisher or you to send a copy of your book to:
The Pulpwood Queens
Attn: Kathy L. Murphy
P.O. Box 1220
Hawkins, Texas 75765 – 1220
If your book is selected, you must be able to ATTEND and be featured at our annual Pulpwood Queen Book Club Convention, which we call Girlfriend Weekend always held Martin Luther King Weekend each year. Your book then will receive our Pulpwood Queen Stamp of Approval, be the mandatory read for all the chapters, be promoted by me, and also be voted on for BOOKS OF THE YEAR. I cannot tell you how many authors, editors, publishers, have personally thanked me for giving their authors a push towards bestseller-dom.
As an added note, all books NOT selected are given out to my Pulpwood Queens and to libraries here in East Texas to keep your book being read out in the world. I also have a Little Free Library in front of my house, that I share books with my neighborhood.
An official author membership has a one-time $50 membership fee and includes your welcome package that has your official certificate and membership card.
There is a higher membership fee of $80 for International memberships due to higher shipping costs for your welcome package.
Starting in March of 2020, we will start including a monthly newsletter post about the new authors who have signed up to the book club during the previous month.
In that post, we will have the list of new authors with information about their newest book including a link to their website or book’s sales page.
So be sure to add your book information to the signup form.
Romance is welcome but DO NOT submit Erotica!
If you write erotica and have another book you can submit, please submit that book regardless of when you wrote it.
If you do not have another book but want to join the book club, please join as a regular member.
