A huge thank you to Simon (TRO user Daemonicragnorak), who just sent me the first user submitted book review with the new interface!
His review also made it past my stringent editorial oversight ;)
And also congratulations – since I was going to send a trade to the first person to submit a review with the form, he’s unknowingly won himself a little book action!
Of course, he had to be in the UK – so I decided that instead of wasting 70 dollars on fed ex, I’d just get him a ten pound Amazon.co.uk gift card and let him pick his prize.
Simon, the gift certificate should be in your email. Why don’t you let us know what you decided to get in a comment?
Since multi-author reviews are moving forward, I revamped the review layout. It’s now closer to the contest or Uncle Gorby’s layout, with large thumbnails and little excerpts. I also added the date and byline – making sure credit is shown for every review author. In order to get everything to work properly, I actually had to get rid of the “Review” custom post type – so all reviews are now just regular posts in the blog category. No need to really go into detail since everything seems to be working fine now.
The book Simon chose to review was Hellblazer: Haunted. The trade has been updated with a cover and release information – stay tuned for his review in the next post!
