The TBR Pile

As we are drawing closer to the submission deadline for the November 20th Winter Edition (September 30th), I thought that all of you might be wondering what I was doing with submissions that are still “To Be Read”. Though this list of books “To Be Read” only exists in the digital space, I have decided to call it a “Pile” anyway. Every time I look at “The TBR Pile” for “Clean Fiction” I get excited. So many interesting books in so many genres just waiting for me to open them! I was saddened by the fact that I could not possibly read them all and review them before deadline because I am really exited to share these books with readers! Then the thought crossed my mind...Why wait? Part of me was still slightly apprehensive to place books in the magazine that I had not yet read, but I decided that it was not enough of an impediment to keep me from doing it.

So, what am I doing with “The TBR Pile”? I will be trusting those who submitted their books and sharing ALL of them in listings that will be scattered throughout the magazine. There will be a warning at the beginning of the publication to read these books at your own risk, but honestly after reading all of the book blurbs I do not think that readers will have any problems. Some of these books were so well reviewed that I even gave them small features. As I said before, I cannot wait to share all of these great books/authors with you!
