Kirkus Reviews Unveils Book Blogger Network

Kirkus Reviews has launched the Kirkus Book Blogger Network, a collection of literary reporters covering everything from mystery books to gardening books.

Here’s more about the program: “We’ve already added bloggers in romance (Smart Bitches, Trashy Books) and Young Adult categories (Bookshelves of Doom, YA or STFU, and The YaYaYas), and now we’re expanding our blogs section to include smart, well-informed bloggers to contribute to our ongoing discussion about books. Today, we’re pleased to announce that several new bloggers are partnering with Kirkus, including The Rap Sheet (Mysteries/Thrillers); SF Signal (Science Fiction/Fantasy), Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast (Children’s) and Garden Rant (gardening).”

Last week on the Morning Media Menu, Mediabistro Startups co-editor Devon Glenn interviewed Kirkus Reviews editor Perry Crowe about the new program. Follow this MP3 link to listen.
