Those MotherTalk-ers have got it going on. They've just launched a matchmaking service for Books Seeking Reviewers, called Connections. The listings it seems are typically from authors or small presses who are looking for online reviewers but not a full-blown blog tour. To submit your own book for a listing, email firstname.lastname@example.org with 500 characters or less and include the book title(s) and contact information. To become a reviewer, get in touch with Melissa at email@example.com. Among others, they are currently seeking reviewers for Mama PhD for a blog tour that starts July 30.
And yet another reason I'm BUMMED I won't be at BlogHer this year: The MotherTalk "First Drink On Us" party at BlogHer on Thursday, July 17th from 5-8 pm at Caruso’s. They'll be giving away nearly 300 fabulous books, and author Shari MacDonald Strong will be on hand to sign copies of The Maternal Is Political.
I know, I know. I have a good excuse. I'm getting married. (Have I mentioned that?! YIKES - it's now 2 weeks away!)
