Three Titles Earn iUniverse Reader’s Choice Designation

New York, NY, May 02, 2007 --( Three outstanding titles recently earned the coveted iUniverse Reader’s Choice designation recognizing books with both 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.

iUniverse titles recently designated as Reader’s Choice include:

▪ Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic by Darren Main
▪ Sounds Like Teen Spirit by Tim English
▪ Bloodroot by Larry Arrowood
