Feature Request – TBR and Beyond FAQ

Are you interested in possibly being featured not only on our blog but on our very active and ever-growing TBR and Beyond group? That’s great! We are honored that you are interested.  Please take the time to read our FAQ before contacting us.  Please note that we are usually booked months in ahead – sometimes we can fit something in but our room is VERY limited for featured group reads and live author interviews.

What is TBR and Beyond? 

TBR and Beyond is a large and fast-growing book community/club that started in February 2018.  We have a very active and eager member-base of loyal book dragons.  The group features bookish chats, games, group reads, event challenges, recommendations, features, spotlights, live author interviews, cover reals, weekly book release information, author event information and lots more.  We get thousands of comments and/or posts every month.  We currently have over 2,500 members/book lovers in the group.

Are the members in the group actually active?

Yes! They are all 100% authentic accounts.  We vet all our members to weed out any fake accounts.  We are very diligent about this.

What types of books do you accept?

We accept mostly YA and Middle-Grade authors/books.  We do tend to feature fantasy more than anything else.  However, we will consider and have featured other genres.  If the genre is contemporary, it must be diverse or focus on an important topic.

How can I get considered a book considered as a monthly group read and live author interview?

We are very booked up.   We are currently booked solid up until May 2019 right now with a lot of amazing authors.  We are willing to consider featuring books when the schedule allows.   We mostly invite authors whose books we think will excite the members.  You can request we read your arc for the possibility of being featured next year.  There is no more room in 2018.

What is needed to be a featured group read/author live interview?

You need to be able to provide an arc beforehand, as well as some signed swag.  We give out swag to the members during the live chat.  It can be bookmarks, bookplates, etc – whatever you have.  You also need to be willing to come visit us on our Facebook group and do a LIVE chat with our members.  All chats are moderated.   The chat last about an hour and normally takes place on the weekdays at 8pm EST (this time is fairly flexible though).
