The official launch announcement will go up in about eight hours! I'd welcome any proof-reading or thoughts on organization, tone, whatever you might not like, wish was easier to find, think is missing, etc....

I poked around a little and it looks good so far. If you'd like me to post an announcement I can do that.

If you can help me write it, that would be even more outstanding. What fits on the home page is limited, so a heading and a pointed couple sentences are all you're going to get there (and I think if/when those get copied to our social media, the message gets cut off there, too).

Hey all! Big role-playing/lit nerd here, looking forward to dusting off an old kindle reader with you guys and getting stuck into some reading/discussions on this page. Got a couple of book noms I think could work here, so I'll see if I can submit something over the coming week.

I can see the secret text in the nominations thread, is it just me?

Baxder, What if I've not read the books I'm nominating? would be hard to do some of the things you are asking, like write up a paragraph about the book or have informed questions to keep in mind during a read.

As for the questions, google is your friend. If you can’t find any, just say so. As for the write-up, you should be able to put something together based on what your expectations of the book are from whatever blurbs you’ve read. If all else fails, you can paraphrase your blurb of choice. No one is going to grade or hold you accountable for the accuracy of your synopsis, especially if you haven’t read the book. And note that it’s a five-sentence maximum. We just need a general idea of what the book is about. Not an essay.

I believe if you're a DM you can see all secret text, sorry if you got spoiled!

Our first book is going to be decided on the 26th, correct? I hope everyone has a book or two to nominate by then, I have an audible credit waiting for whatever we decide

Thanks for pointing out the spoilers, Squid. I wouldn't have thought to avoid reading your questions otherwise. And yes, our first book will be announced on the 26th. Squee!
