Now It’s Time to Read! Plus: Dates to Remember

OK, Swooners!

We hope you have a comfy chair standing by and a replenished stock of the caffeinated beverage of your choice, because now it’s time to read!

With the submission deadline for Season 5 now closed, it’s time for our readers to help us choose. For the month of June we will be looking for you to rate, comment and tell us what you love. Remember, Swoon Reads is not a contest. The quality of the comments matters more than the quantity, and we’ve chosen manuscripts with all levels of feedback. We also tend to choose more than one manuscript (so writers, this is where you can also support your fellow writers on site).

Be respectful in your feedback, but also be helpful. Swoon Reads is a great place for writers to beta test their book. We’ve had writers get insightful feedback and then resubmit to be published (Just ask Karole!). Not sure how to write a good critique? We have some tips for you. And if you want to know where to start, check out Holly’s post on what to read.

Also, if you haven’t yet cast your vote to choose a cover for Jenn P. Nguyen‘s The Way to Game the Walk of Shame, you only have until TODAY at noon to do so!

And for all you Floridians out there, on Saturday June 6 at 2 p.m., our very own Kimberly Karalius (author of Love Fortunes and Other Disasters) will be at the Barnes & Noble in the Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. Be sure to stop by and say hello!

Happy reading/rating/voting, Swooners!
