If you’re on Facebook, you might want to check out a new initiative called Jingle Book Rock set up by Bookgasm and Athena’s Bookshelf to promote books as gifts. Authors are encouraged to post info on their 2008 releases with book info on the Wall, then a photo of the cover in the Fan Photos, then “share” the site by sending it to all of his/her Facebook friends to join. Readers and fans can stop by for a chance to win copies of the books listed.
Bookgasm, run by Rod Lott is one of my daily go-to sites for finding out news about thrillers, horror, Westerns, and all kinds of weird miscellany. It makes me look smart to my husband. 😉 Athena’s Bookshelf was created by Malena Lott, author DATING DA VINCI and THE STORK REALITY, and covers the women’s fiction market. So really, anything goes here. No matter what genre you enjoy, you’ll find something.
