Chaos in da house

Unfortunately, it rules my life these days, so it will be another slow blogging week.

I've been kicking around a few ideas to boost TBR, my new blog for readers to find great reads. First, it will be part of a Leap Day blog hop next month, and I'm giving away a few prizes, so stay tuned for that.

I'm also going to open up weekends for Blurb Fests. To make it easy for readers to find genres they like, the Blurb Fests will be targeted to one specific genre at a time. It may be once a month, maybe twice. I've begun to compile lists of genres, and so far have:








General, open to all

Any other genres you'd like to see, as a reader?

How would the Blurb Fest work? Well, thanks for asking! :)

Once I post the accompanying graphic in the post section, authors would paste their blurbs (just blurbs, no excerpts) from their books in the comments section, and provide a link for readers to find more information about it.

Kind of a self-serve, free for all, post. Easy for authors, and easy on me. :)

I'm hoping to garner more followers for TBR that way too.

So what do you think? Would you participate in a Blurb Fest on TBR? Any suggestions? Thoughts? Questions? As always, I'd love to hear 'em!

You're doing such a fantastic job, Cate!

Science fiction!
And just keep doing what you're doing with TBR. It will build.

Thanks guys! It will be fun to see it grow.

I'll participate. Also, once I get the virtual tour for Midnight Oil out of the way, my blog will have room for a bit of promoting other people's books and sites.

It's a great idea, Cate. Could we have a fantasy day? Or combine it with a scifi day?

Cate Masters said...

Very cool Marva.

I was thinking fantasy would be part of Paranormal - I never know where to draw the line for those!
