Today Chronicle Books announced that it will publish Paul Laudiero, a first-time author and the grand-prize winner of The Great Tumblr Book Search. Additionally Chronicle and Tumblr are pleased to announce that the contest will be an annual partnership.
The Great Tumblr Book Search kicked off in January and Chronicle received 175 entries in just 45 days. For the past month, editors at both Chronicle and Tumblr read through the proposals. And it was Laudiero’s book idea that caught their eye.
