May is Utah Author Month!

Utah-Author--MonthThe announcement is a long time coming, but this post is to officially let what many of you who are local to Utah already know, May is going to be Utah Author Month!

A entire month dedicated to local Utah book bloggers spotlighting our amazing local Utah authors through reviews, interviews, guest posts, reflections, and whatever else fun and wacky posts we can come up with!  Utah is home to an amazing literary community and we want to share it with you!

If you are involved in the literary scene here in Utah (as a blogger, published author, writer, bookseller, publishing professional) please fill out the following form. I will respond to you and coordinate dates and posts. I’m pretty open to any ideas you have to make it a great spotlight!  I’m sure there will be a few questions and such, so send them my way.  And while, I may not be able to coordinate interviews, etc. with your I-must-interview-this-author-or-die author, I will say that we do have the support of our local authors behind the event, so get your thinking caps on on how you’d like to be involved.  All genres, all reading levels and such accepted!

You may discover the nearly 80 Utah Book Bloggers by subscribing to the shared RSS feed, following the Utah Book Community Twitter list, or if you are a book blogger, join our ning group.  I also have a great blogroll as well.  But who are the authors?  In preparation for this month, I started a list on Goodreads to which anybody can add a book by a Utah author. That list has already grown to over 500 books! If you would like to participate in Utah Author Month but need some direction, that list is where I’ll point you.

For the rest of you . . . here’s looking forward to May where we get to share with you how awesome our Utah authors are!
