)-- Two more outstanding titles earned the coveted iUniverse Reader’s Choice designation during the week of April 8, 2007. Reader’s Choice recognizes books that have achieved editorial excellence and sales success.
Titles reach the Reader's Choice level after receiving the Editor's Choice designation for editorial quality and selling 250 copies. Of these 250 copies, 50 percent must have been sold through the retail channel (not purchased directly from iUniverse by the author). Authors whose books achieve Reader’s Choice receive a number of benefits, including monthly seminars with an experienced book publicist and a bi-monthly newsletter with exclusive tips on publicity opportunities and special sales advice. These books feature a special icon next to their titles and are placed in a separate Reader's Choice section of the iUniverse bookstore.
The iUniverse titles achieving Reader’s Choice during the week of April 8, 2007 include:
A Multitude of Mercies by Fay Freimuth. In this powerful novel, Laura battles inner turmoil and looks for unconditional love. However, her sister’s efforts to protect her may keep Laura from finding the happiness she craves.
