It takes a village

>> Wednesday, May 30, 2007

If you're browsing around the romance blogosphere and have ended up here, chances are you're not the type of reader who simply picks up whatever looks interesting at the bookstore. If you're anything like me, your book buying involves meticulous and incredibly time-consuming research into what's coming out next.

Well, have I got a website for you! Romantic Advances was a concept Jane and Sybil came up with, and a bunch of us bloggers have been helping make it real.

The idea is to have all the information you need in one stop. We're planning to list all upcoming romance novels (though at first, at least, we're confining ourselves to RWA -authorized publishers), but not just title and author. We know that unless it's a book by an autobuy author in the first place, we readers need a bit more information to make up our minds.

So, at Romantic Advances, you'll also be able to see what the book is about, whether it's part of a series, a picture of the cover, and in many cases, an excerpt. Plus, you'll be able to search these upcoming books according to different criteria... Medievals coming out in June? You've got it. Vampire books? Got it as well.

We've only just started and are still in beta, so we don't yet have all the info up and haven't ironed out all the bugs, but we invite you to come on over and explore.

Building the TBR mountain... one book at a time.
