The All Male Review Challenge

Sunday, May 1, 2011

Welcome to 
The All Male Review Challenge

This reading and reviewing challenge, hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader and myself, will run the entire month of May. We are so excited about it and hope you are too!

How to participate: Beginning TODAY, any book you read and review by a male author or containing a male protagonist is eligible to be entered into our inlinkz collection. At the end of the month, Missie and I will choose the winners for our Mega AWESOME Prize Packs of books!

Throughout the month of May, we will also have spotlight reviews, special guest posts, author interviews, blogger interviews and mini giveaways! We are still pulling together prize packs and confirming our guest authors, but so far we have features and giveaways planned with authors Charles Benoit, Jon Skovron, R.A. Nelson, Antony John, Joshua C. Cohen, James Kennedy and Hannah Moskowitz!

The winnings: We have three Mega Awesome Prize Packs: a paranormal prize pack, a contemporary prize pack, and an international prize pack. Not only are we giving away books, but tons of swag too! Here's a list of what we have so far, but we'll be adding to this list, so stay tuned.

Missie said...

I can't stop giggling over how dorky we are! Love it!

hi Logan! i posted my links for the challenge. is there a way for you to add more characters to the Name box? it's a little difficult to input title, author and name if we're limited to 50 characters only. i love the thumbnails though! thanks! c",)

Logan E. Turner said...

@Tabitha - Thanks for posting our button!

@Missie - We are SO dorky, but also awesome. :)

@aobibliophile - Hm. I don't think we can add characters, but I'll look into it. I would say just cut out the author if you're running out of characters. :)

I don't think my link is working : (

Logan E. Turner said...

@Eliza - It's up! Number 55. I tested the link and it seems to be working now.

This has been such a fun challenge. I've read two books so far, working on a third, don't know if I'll get the third one done before the deadline though.
