Top 2 Bottom Merges with The Scarlet Letter!!

I would like to take a moment of your time to make a special announcement. It’s one that has been in the works for some time now and it’s finally come to see the light. As you are aware, I’ve been hard at work with Zathyn Priest and The Scarlet Letter magazine. In saying that, I’m proud to announce the merging of the two!

The Scarlet Letter and Top2Bottom reviews have merged to offer authors and publishers a wider audience to reach readers. The Scarlet Letter featured reviews from Top2Bottom in the first issue and this will become a regular feature. As it’s been mentioned previously, the magazine is not geared toward emulating a review site, which is why the partnership was agreed upon. Zathyn does not write reviews and he doesn’t intend to start. This is Top 2 Bottom’s area of expertise. If you’re interested in having a book reviewed, please visit Top2Bottom and follow the instructions on the ‘submissions and contact information’ link.

Please do not send review requests/inquiries to Zathyn or via The Scarlet Letter. There is a very good chance they won’t reach their intended target if you do.

With each issue of The Scarlet Letter we will feature one title as the editor’s pick. This book will be chosen by myself from our list of recently reviewed books. The author chosen will be contacted by Top2Bottom and informed their title has been selected.

We look forward to working with many publishers and authors in this adventure, and are always open to suggestions.

A note about The Scarlet Letter

The Scarlet Letter is an online magazine aimed toward offering writers of GLBT fiction an avenue for promotion while offering readers the opportunity to get to know they’re favourite authors better. Through the free e-card feature, we are also opening the doors to artists who would like to promote their work. The magazine is one part of the Scarlet community, which will include publishing, a forum, and a chatroom.

All authors, whether self-published or traditionally published, are invited to submit content for use in the magazine – please see submission guidelines. Guidelines are also available for artists/photographers.

The Scarlet Letter focuses on positivity and creating a safe, encouraging atmosphere for all writers and readers. We do not publish negative reviews, we do not publish gossip, and we will not publish guest blogs/articles that focus on another author or book in a negative light. Such submissions will be discarded immediately. Continued submissions of this nature will result in the sender being blacklisted.
