Bookstore Bookblogger is now open to all genres of fiction! Yes, it’s true!
If you roll over the Books tab near the top of the page you’ll see a handful of genres. I’ll be going through our current library to see what needs to be moved, and all new submissions will go into a genre page. the genre list isn’t an end all be all, it was just came to mind while I was building the page.
If you visit the “I’m a Book Blogger!” page, you’ll find a new question asking you the genre of your book. Most books fit into more than one (or two or three) genres, so just choose the best you can and don’t worry about it. I’ve I got a bunch of Patrick Ness in YA/MG, and you select Scifi/fantasy, I’ll most likely put it with the other Ness titles. the genre menu isn’t something to stress over.
allow me to say that again: don’t stress over the genre menu. it’s there because I needed to split things up in some way to make blurbs easier to find, not because I’m all for categorizing the YA scif-fantasy thriller romance you just finished.
why the change? A handful of reasons, including:
- It was agreed we should make this service available to as many bookstores as possible, regardless of how many scifi/fantasy titles they have on the shelf
- It was agreed we should invite as many bloggers to participate as possible, regardless of how many scifi/fantasy titles they review (or even enjoy)
- the ladies who run BSBBConxn are lunatics and enjoy biting off more than they can chew.
that said, let’s get this BIGGER book blurb party started!
