Celebrating Pub Day at Swoon Reads HQ
January 6 was a very exciting day for Swoon Reads when two new titles, Save Me and The Boy Next Door, finally hit the shelves! So, on Monday we got the whole team together, ordered some pizza and cupcakes, and talked about how we’re doing and how to make Swoon Reads even better.
There are now three Swoon Reads books published and out in the world, with a whole bunch more coming along! A Little Something Different has continued to do well since it pubbed in August. The advance reader editions for two more books, Velvet and How To Say I Love You Out Loud are in, and AREs for Love Fortunes and Other Disasters are just finishing up at the printers. Meanwhile, our four brilliant new authors are hard at work editing These Vicious Masks, Warning! You Might Fall in Love With Me, and Kiss Cam. Be sure to check out these titles on the site! We still want to hear what you think, so keep those comments rolling in!
There are 264 (!!!) manuscripts on the site right now, and that number continues to grow by the day. (Sometimes by the hour!) The growth has been absolutely fantastic, and we’ve seen more than 50 new manuscripts since November alone. For those of you still interested in submitting, remember that the Season 4 deadline is Jan. 30 at 11:59 p.m. EST. You must post your manuscript by then in order to be considered for our fourth list. But don’t worry, we will be posting many more reminders between now and then.
We are all so excited to be a part of this wonderful Swoon Reads community. We’ve had so much fun working with such hardworking and talented writers, and no one has cooler authors than us. Swoon Reads authors are special in that they are all teammates at heart. They’re all active community members and genuinely want each other to succeed. They support each other through the whole process and are always willing to share their experiences and expertise with aspiring writers. You can check out some of their great advice on the Swoon Says blog.
We have some site updates in the works for this year, and stay tuned for some brand new on-site features. If you have any ideas for how to make Swoon Reads even better, or if you feel like there’s something missing, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
