We have over 50 participating bloggers. that’s awesome, you guys rock my world!
We have over 400 blurbs for I have no idea how many titles. I’d love to get to a thousand by this summer.
Our most blurb’d authors are Philip K. Dick and Brandon Sanderson. Our most blurb’d titles are Redshirts, by John Scalzi, and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
Because I’m addicted to biting off more than I can chew, I’m thinking of opening this thing up to all fiction, not just Scifi/Fantasy/Speculative Fiction. what do ya’ll think. Should I do it?
Update: Most of the blurbs that are submitted are the perfect length – a few sentences or less. I’ve made a handful of shelftalkers, and really, more than few sentences is all that’s gonna fit. Also, shorter is better. If you submit a blurb that is too long for me to use, I reserve the right edit it down by using one or two complete sentences or uses elipses between fragments. Also, if your blurb has any swear words in (yes, I know, that book really was fucking awesome!), I’ll probably use all sorts of fun characters to fix your four letter #$&% words. These shelf talkers are gonna be in bookstores, and like, kids go there ‘n stuff. Cool?
