Default Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off 2.0 - Great Opportunity for Self-Published Authors


Hello all,

I was an early member here at Writer's Beat, became a Mod/Admin, and ran the WB Quarterly for a year. If you remember me (or maybe you've heard the rumors...), please say hi!

I came back here today to spread the word about SPFBO2, or Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off Round 2. This is a contest initiated last year by fantasy author Mark Lawrence and it's a great chance for authors of self-published fantasy to have their work read by well-known book bloggers/reviewers.

Last year's winner (selected from 250+ submissions) has now received a traditional publishing contract and the bloggers provided over 100 reviews! This is a fantastic opportunity, but Mark needs 250 submissions or there will be no contest.

I've entered my own novel, The Blood-Tainted Winter, and would really love to see the contest go forward. (So, yes, I am in fact here for selfish reasons. ) If you have a qualifying novel out in the wild already or are days away from releasing it, please consider entering. There's really no reason not to!

You can read more, including how to submit and the rules for submissions, here: http://mark---lawrence.blogspot.co.u...03/spfbo2.html

And read about last year's contest and results here: http://mark---lawrence.blogspot.co.u...tasy-blog.html

Please share this information!

Hey, Devon! Glad to see someone from the old days is still puttering around this place. The site seems to be doing well. Oh, and I've spotted you over on Amazon.

It is, indeed, a great opportunity! Obviously I have a vested interest in seeing us hit the 250 mark, but having read a bit about what people (writers and bloggers and readers) got out of last year's process, I really do think it's a worthwhile project.
