Hi Tapas community!
TLDR; I'm a blogger looking for book recommendations to read and list on my website, Virtual Bookshelf. This is a hobby and project of mine since early 2019 in order to help readers find great, undiscovered stories by small authors. Ongoing or completed novels and series of any genre are okay. If you want specific, individual feedback on your books, then join the official community Discord server. Stories requested on the Discord server are prioritized and read first before any others on this thread or other forums.
Thank you in advance for your recommendations! I look forward to reading awesome new stories.
Full transparency: This thread had been previously flagged as possible spam due to including links to my website and formal wording that sounded like a business. Apparently a lot of spam are caused by blogs, so that's likely why it got flagged and my posts locked. After amending my wording and removing the website link on my forum account so that is no longer mistaken for spam, my thread and account was reinstated by staff. Thank you for your assistance!
More info if you're interested in what I do/blog:
Stories are assessed numerically on five quality and skill factors and then indexed with curated reviews. All informational story pages redirect any website visitors back to the original writing platform such as here on Tapas in order to read the books.
This standardized, organized system is to help identify well-written stories for readers and to encourage writers to keep improving their craft. Besides increased exposure for their stories to help writers gain an audience/readership, they are also supported through our Discord community on writing help and publishing knowledge or just a space to chill and relax.
I cover several writing platforms besides Tapas and do not ask nor receive any monetary gain from this hobby project. This is just for fun with a sincere hope to help the reading and writing communities. You are not obligated to visit the website or join the Discord when giving book recommendations, but if you are interested in the work I do, the links are below.
Hope to see you there!
