Big Idea Update

I’ve had questions from folks wondering about the status of Big Ideas here on Whatever and on the upcoming BigIdeaAuthors.com site, so I thought I’d do a quick update on both:

1. The BigIdeaAuthors.com site has now been constructed and ready to be populated with content, which we’ll be doing over the next few weeks (we’ve got more than a year’s worth of Big Ideas to put into the archives, etc). Before we open it up to the public I’ll make a general call to authors. The plan as you’ll recall is to have a Big Idea essay for every day of the week, so there will be lots of opportunity for authors to tell readers about their books.

2. In the meantime, yes, I am still very much accepting Big Idea proposals here at Whatever; I’ve got a couple lined up for the coming weeks and will be happy to entertain more. Every Big Idea posted here will be ported into the BIA site as well. So if you have a book coming out in the September/October timeframe that you’d like to promote via a Big Idea, drop me an e-mail and let me know, and we’ll see if we can get it onto the schedule.

Any other questions, either about BigIdeaAuthors or doing a Big Idea piece here on Whatever, drop ‘em in the comment queue. Thanks.
