Staying open, but slowing down

I’ll get the submission guidelines updated to reflect this within the next couple of days, but here’s the thing:  Backlog will be updated once a week sometime between Saturday and Tuesday, due to various life things that could interfere with even that the new “did aliens eat it?” is going to be if two whole weekends go by without anything showing up.

The site is staying open for the foreseeable future, but the way Amazon‘s review policies are changing lately I may close down simply because it won’t be worth the bother; this site isn’t where the meat of the promotion for your books comes from and never will be — how many people actually pay attention to review blogs?!  The meat of this site’s benefits to people are the Amazon and Goodreads reviews, and the former probably twice as much as the latter.  There may come a day when our reviews are being pulled from Amazon or being rejected out of hand and when that day comes the site will close.  I shan’t delete it, but the forms will go away and the backlog will remain as it was.

No review this week?

As a matter of fact, yes, there should be.

There’s no big press item this week. And as soon as I can get a moment to give it the attention due I plan to review a pair of novels and another webcomic.

There is also another author who is working on a review of some self-published items she’s recently finished reading but she’s an author herself and one of her own stories has engrossed most of her attention of late.

So bear with is for a bit and there will be more coming.

Also there’s the matter of submissions! We could use them. We’re all readers here and could spend a year or two going through our bookshelves reviewing those, but we’d much rather review stuff we’ve never seen before. So, come on, don’t be shy.

Genre doesn’t matter, nor length. Poetry, scifi, westerns, mysteries, romance, it doesn’t matter we want to see it. Published already or coming soon doesn’t matter. Just so long as we can give a date it’ll be on shelves or a link to where it can be bought today we’re good.
