Adam here.

We apologize for the delay in posting this month’s Author Sales Contest Leaderboard. This month, instead of posting contest standings to the Lulu blog, we launched a Beta version of a new contest Leaderboard page, which we’ll constantly update.

So, without further delay…here are the current July Sales contest standings as of July 23, 2009:

———————————————————————–

With May’s Author Sales Contest coming to a close in a couple of days, it’s about time we start posting details on our upcoming June contest. Since these past few months of hosting sales contests have been so successful, we figured, why mess up a good thing? So, after the winners for May’s contest are confirmed, we’ll reset the counters back to zero and start off fresh.

June’s Author Sales Contest will begin on the first of the month and the rules are pretty much the same;  who ever earns the highest number of sales for their content on Lulu throughout June, wins. The three highest selling authors will receive $500, $750 and $1,500 respectively, with the top three titles (and a few honorable mentions) highlighted on the site and Lulu newsletter. To sweeten the deal even further, our June first place winner will also be treated to an exclusive interview posted prominently here, in our very own Lulu blog.

To enter the contest you must register through the entry form on the Author Sales Contest page.  Registration is open now through the end of May.  For more information head on over to the contest page and sign up.

Early standing will be posted approximately 1 week after the start of the contest with updates posted regularly thereafter. Click here to see last months winners.

Good luck everyone!
