Remember when I asked you last week about the hypothetical Twitter chats? Well they aren’t hypothetical anymore! Brittany and I have officially launched a new website called Literary Lushes! We will be specializing in ARC tours (yay!) and bi-weekly Twitter chats! We are extremely excited and hope that you will join us. The site is live, so go take a gander and find more info below:
What is Literary Lushes? Literary Lushes is twofold: First is an ARC tour site. After our experience at BEA 2013, we decided that we wanted to be able to share these ARCs with our friends and fellow bloggers but we needed a fair way to do that. We got the idea to organize it into a more casual-type ARC tour site. Secondly, Literary Lushes is a Twitter chat. We will be hosting bi-weeky Twitter chats on Thursdays at 9pm, with the hashtag #LitLush to talk about anything and everything books — and preferably with a beverage in hand! Each chat will have a specific topic of focus to help keep us on track!
So how do the tours work? It’s simple! We’ll throw out announcements on Mondays with information about the upcoming galley(s) that will be available to request. On the following Wednesday, a post will go up which will allow you to request the title, each title will be available on a first come, first serve basis. While it is first come, first serve to be granted access to the title, to cut down on travel times, it will be location that determines your place on the tour. The number of people approved for a tour will depend on the popularity of the book as well as the publishing date. You’ll have a week to read the book and then pass along to the next person.
