Let's Buzz the Lost Genre Guild!

The CSFF blog tour is buzzing the LGG this week. If you don't know what the LGG is, then either you haven't listened to a word I've ever said, or you are the victim of an unhappy accident of fate. Want to know? Go here: Welcome to our world.

I thought I'd do my bit by telling you how you can best help to promote the genre. One of the best ways to do this is to subscribe to the blog, and also make sure you submit your news and send your readers in the same direction. There are several ways to do this.

If you go over to http://blog.lostgenreguild.com you'll see a Feedblitz box in the left sidebar a little way down If you enter your email here, you'll be notified regularly about a day after each post appears. Not sure why it's so slow, but better late than never, right?

Below that is a Blogger Follow box. If you have a blogger account, just click Follow This Blog and it'll be added to the feed that appears on your Blogger dashboard.

And if you are a member of Facebook, there is a subscriber page there too: http://apps.facebook.com/blognetworks/blog/lost_genre_guild_news/ - once you've added yourself to the group you can invite your friends as well. You can also add a Facebook promo widget to any website by using the code found at this link:

I've been running the born-again LGG blog for just over a month now, and I've never once run out of news. But I'd like there to be even more! Web searches usually bring me useful bits and pieces, but it would be even awesomer (is that a word??) if authors and reviewers would post their news either on the LGG mailing list or in a blog comment over there where I can find it. All kinds of news is fair game, and you can read more details of what we want at http://blog.lostgenreguild.com/2008/11/submission-guidelines.html. This includes new releases, websites, reviews, contests, e-zine updates, and more.

There's no shortage of news and happenings in this genre, and the fans are after it if we only point them in the right direction. Wonder where this thing'll take us?
