Gives Back to Its Readers to give some lucky reader over $6,000 worth of books
How do you say thank you? is giving a lucky reader over $6,000 worth of books to celebrate its one-year anniversary. The web-based publisher is awarding a complete set of the 420 titles GU has published in its first year of business.

"We wanted to say thank you to those who have made this business what it is today -- to the writers, the readers, and others who have supported us in revolutionizing the publishing industry," says Jeff Schwaner, co-founder and Editor in Chief. Launched last May with eight authors, the site now has over 420 authors and grows every day, says assistant editor Melissa Harrison. "And with feedback from our writers, and readers who purchase thousands of books each month from the site, we've continually made improvements in our services. It's been a great year."

The official announcement of the give-away will be web cast from the GreatUNpublished anniversary party on May 25th during a live chat. The winner will be announced on July 4th. The winner will be chosen from those who have signed up for GU's monthly e-zine. Readers can subscribe at
