#RBWL: Reader Blogger Wishlist Take Three!


RBWL copy

It's back! #RBWL is back! For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, #RBWL is a Twitter hashtag my friend Shae at Shae Has Left the Room came up with last year. There's a very popular hashtag that literary agents and publishing peeps use called #MSWL, or manuscript wishlist, in which they tweet the things they'd like to see in manuscripts, or like the dream stories they'd like to receive.

Shae spun off of that and created a wishlist for readers and bloggers--hence, #RBWL. It was a huge success, not only one, but twice. So Shae is bringing it back, and I'm helping out, because I like making demands of the bookish universe every now and then.

Tomorrow, at 12 pm Eastern Time, 9 am Pacific Time, we'll begin tweeting about things we'd like to see in books under the hashtag #RBWL. We'll be discussing storylines, plots, concepts, and anything else you can think of.



If you want to see some examples, check out my wrap-up of the first #RBWL.

Please make sure to also check out Shae's post, where she goes into detail about the kind of tweets we don't want to see. Basically, don't spam the hashtag with your book. DO make recommendations to a specific tweeter if you have one that fits their wishlist! Suppose someone wants... um... a lesbian pirate story set in the future. (Oh my god, I want that.) And you're like, "Holy crap! I know a book like that! Hey, person who just tweeted that, have you ever read Lesbian Pirate Story? It totally fits your #RBWL!"

This hashtag is tonssss of fun, and you should definitely join us on Twitter tomorrow at 12 pm ET/ 9 am. I'll be tweeting up a storm, coffee in hand. If you want more examples of tweets, check out the RBWL tumblr!
