   Readers’ Favorite has announced the results of their literary competition through a premium press release which will be placed into RSS feeds with more than 250,000 subscribers including bloggers, journalists, and consumers. The release will also be sent to more than 35,000 opt-in journalists, including the Associated Press, and top US newspapers like USA Today, as well as, search engines like Yahoo and Google, and popular social media sites like Facebook and Twitter (1.1 million followers strong)! Results through a professional, high distribution press release is articulated in the visual diagram (below):



   In addition to the external press release dispersed today, Readers’ Favorite is also sending an internal mailing to their membership base, which contains thousands of authors, agents, and publishers who use the website services. As a result, Readers’ Favorite should see a dramatic rise in traffic over the next 30-60 days, both to the contest winner’s pages, and to the review pages of all authors.

ac lyles<——– A.C. Lyles was a movie producer for Paramount Pictures, who’s best known for producing a variety of low budget Westerns in the 1950s and 1960s. His formidable fingerprints can be found in Golden Age cinematic faire, including The Mountain (starring Spencer Tracy and Robert Wagner); Short Cut to Hell (directed by James Cagney); and the epic Korean War film, The Young and the Brave.

   A.C. became the studio’s longest-serving Paramount employee during a tenure that lasted more than three-quarters of a century. The outgoing Lyles became friendly with most of the major stars of the era, including Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour, Ronald Reagan, and William Holden. He persuaded friends such as Joel McCrea, Randolph Scott, Jane Russell, Pat O’Brien and Dana Andrews to appear in his films. Lyles was a consulting and associate producer for such small screen efforts as Rawhide, and most recently, the HBO series – Deadwood.

   As Paramount’s ambassador of goodwill, Lyles appeared regularly in his later years at film festivals, colleges, and nostalgia conventions to talk about the studio’s legacy and its current product. He also welcomed visiting notables to the studio, and conducted tours of the studio lot, which he knew intimately. He served on the White House Advisory Council on Private Sector Initiatives when Reagan was president. According to a passage written by Gary Lycan, the late Orange County Register radio columnist, who wrote the wonderful Introduction to Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History:

“Lyles was the go-to person for any great stories about Hollywood history”

   A.C. Lyles was 95.
