Literary Ventures Fund

Literary Ventures Fund

So I just had a conversation with Kate from the Literary Ventures Fund.  The more I read about them and talk to her, the more I’m really impressed with their organization.  They basically work with publishers that are too small to have dedicated marketing people and help them market their books.  They do not, however, work with just any old book.  They have to fall in love with a book first – which explains why all the books Kate already sent me all look so fantastic!

Kate and I talked for about half an hour.  She told me more about LVF, I talked about the different places I have been getting books for review: ReaderViews, Barnes and Nobles First Look Book Club, LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

Evidently Kate likes the way I write about the books I read (Big Smile), so I’m going to be reading some of their books and reviewing them here for all of you.  Most of the authors whose books LVF works with are still in their day jobs, so are approachable and not big, scary, FAMOUS people, so expect to see some of them submitting guest posts here, or being interviewed by yours truly.

I’m super excited about this: reviewing for a good cause and reading great books!

    How are you finding the time to read all of these books? Between LT and reading blogs my actual reading time has been cut in half.

    I can’t wait to read your review on these, they all sound great! Good luck.

    I went over to their site and it looks great. Are you able to get review copies?

    She sent me 6 different books to review already, and is planning on sending me one more as well. It was so fun that someone in the ‘industry’ really wanted the opinion of a book-lover
