Open Sesame

Or is it…open says me? I never knew.

Which ever it is, the window is now open for 28 Days Later submissions.

The Brown Bookshelf is still here four years later because of word-of-mouth. For those who visit regularly, we appreciate your spreading the word about submission time and then promoting 28 Days Later when February hits. Without that we’d be shouting into the wind.

So we need your help once again. For our regulars, you’ll notice we’ve cut the submission window down to a solid month. In years past it’s remained open until November. But what we’re finding is, we get a good run the first two weeks and then things really drop off.

I’m hoping we can get a good run going. I don’t care if it’s a week or for the entire month – I just want to see a good streak of books and authors submitted. It would be exciting to get a deeper candidate pool. But we all know, the pool is only as deep as the offerings. So if you haven’t already start digging and then throw those names in the ring.

We appreciate you!
