You're Invited to Spoilerville

By Jan Burke


At last, a place where enthusiastic fans can talk about your books without spoiling the plots for those who haven't read them yet!

Spoilerville [http://spoilerville.com] is a place where your readers can comment on your books after they've read them. Here, they don't need to worry about asking questions on blogs, websites, mailing lists and other places where they might raise the ire of those who haven't yet read your latest.

And, yes, I started it because I needed a place like this, and figured others might, too.

It's easy to have your books included -- and it's free.

Just send the following to me at spoilerville[at]gmail.com (Please convert that into the usual address format -- I put it here in this form to discourage spammers):


1) Low resolution/web-sized images of your book covers (ideally, all in one email)

2) Your website's URL.

That's all there is to it! Once your books are up on the site, I'll send you links to your pages and you can encourage your readers to join in the fun.

If you have questions or need more details, contact me at the Spoilerville email address above.
