New GLBT promotion site
A new site, GLBT Bookshelf, has been created for authors, readers, and reviewers of GLBT themed books.
The story of how it started here.
It's virtually open to anyone to join and is free. It's still a site in progress and as the originator of the site has stated, it's open to anyone for suggestions as it's being run more like a co-op or "Kibbutz" as he puts it.
I've signed up to maybe post reviews of books on there.
So far, in going through the site, there's no easy way to find lesbian or Bi f/f books in the "Bookstore" section, so I probably wouldn't go there at the moment to find books. However, it's nice to know it's not set in stone. This can change and there's a great search option, which does yield all the info on the search term within the site.
I think this is a great idea and is yet another support for authors and readers of GLBT books to have a place to promote, mingle and get info knowing that they will not be marginalized like what happened with *coughAmazonfailcough.*
If you're an author it's very author friendly. You can promote your book, have author pages, and links to buy your book.
And if you're a reader, it's a good place to get more info on a book or author.
