Now that the blogger social is over (so much fun!) I'm now looking ahead to the project which I announced there. It is definitely in the pre-planning stages but in a nutshell, what we will be doing is taking an entire month and creating a fantastic event which Utah book bloggers will be highlighting Utah authors and their books! This will likely happen in November. Right now, what needs to happen is that we need to identify a list of Utah authors and their books (I've been looking at more mainstream market here as opposed to LDS market - I'm not purposely omitting them but that list is understandably HUGE and I simply can not take that on).
I have created a Goodreads list. This is great because anybody with a Goodreads account can add books to the list. It's very collaborative that way. However, there is a 100 book limit for each user and I hit my limit within 5 minutes of creating the list. I have dozens of more authors that need to be added to the list. If you are on Goodreads, will you please take the time to add any books by Utah authors that you think should not be overlooked? Whether these be picture book, MG, YA, adult or non-fiction. I am hoping to have a rather complete list within the next couple of weeks so we can move on to other planning stages of this event.
