A Different Approach - Swoon Reads

One of my blogging/writer friends introduced me to an interesting path to possible publication and after careful deliberation, I've decided to give it a try.  The site is called Swoon Reads and its business model revolves around the concept that readers should be the ones to help decide which books deserve a chance at a traditional publishing contract. The site is exclusive to YA, but all sort of genres are represented.

In that spirit, my novel PRICK (link below) is up for review until Aug. 31st and although to date it has been added to lots of reading lists, the rating/reviews have been slow to come. I'd appreciate anyone reading this please take the time to give it a read and leave an honest rating/review.

Thanks in advance! :)


  1. Interesting publishing model. Takes away some of the risk for the publisher as they already know what books are best reviewed. Although it's still all about getting the book in front of its target reader.

  2. That is an interesting publishing model. I had heard of Swoon Reads, but I didn't know anything about it. Thanks for the takeaway and I'm definitely checking out your novel.

  3. This sounds like a good idea. You can let the people who end up reading it decide or a handful of publishing people.

    Good luck with your book.
