I just got my first book to review via SheBlogs from the Literary Ventures Fund. The book is The Art of Disappearing by Ivy Pochoda and published by St. Martin's Press. How? Just by joining SheBlogs and then watching what was happening. I first noticed an article, sign up to review The Art of Disappearing.... Ah, a book! I fumbled through the process since I didn't immediately contact Mary...but after that, everything worked very well! My review will be up probably next week! Watch for it! In the meantime, you can click on the title of this article to link to the Literary Ventures Fund...or SheBlogs.org from the link below or my widget in right column!

Literary Ventures Fund
The Literary Ventures Fund, a first-of-its-kind, not-for-profit private foundation, serves as a primary “partner-in-risk” with authors and publishers in advancing works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Using a philanthropic investment model, we provide supplementary support to literary authors and publishers by offering them our foundation’s resources, including expertise and publishing ties to bookstores and media outlets, publicity assistance, innovative marketing and sales programs, and in some cases direct cash investments as well. LVF’s efforts help ensure that exceptional works of fiction, literary non-fiction, and poetry with a potential for broad readership reach the widest possible audience and remain in print for years to come. In addition, LVF fulfills its public-policy mission by presenting programs that generate discussion about the broader literary landscape, the role of publishing in serving literary writers, and how more readers can become engaged with literature.
