Long and Short Reviews has just opened their submission box for their 2024 Winter Blogfest.
Who can participate: Anyone who has published at least one book (or who will be seeing their first book published soon).
What you will get: Free promotion of your book on a busy, well-known bookish site and exposure to new readers.
What you‘ll need to provide:
- A 250-500 word guest post about winter or any winter holiday (Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, New Year’s, etc)
- A small prize. Previous participants have offered stuff like a free ebook, bookmark, $5 gift card to an online bookseller, etc.
- A short biography of yourself. Think 2-3 sentences on average, although longer is perfectly fine, too.
- A picture of your book cover (and one additional photo to illustrate your post, if desired)
- Links to your website, social media accounts, etc. (if desired)
Last day for submission: December 10, 2023 (or sooner if all 50 spots are taken before then).
How to submit: Follow all of the instructions on this page. If you have any problems with your submission, there is an email address on that page you can contact for assistance.
Publication dates for submissions: December 18 through December 29, 2023.
Your exact publication date is influenced by a few factors, including how early you submitted it and which winter holiday you picked because they try to match up submissions with the winter holidays that are currently happening as much as possible.
So, for example, Winter Solstice posts are usually scheduled at the beginning of the Blogfest. Christmas posts tend to be published in the middle of it close to Christmas, and New Year’s posts are generally saved for the last few days of the Blogfest.
This is such a fun event. I hope to see you all over there as guest bloggers and/or commenters.
