Chronicle Books and Tumblr have teamed up for their second annual book search contest. The Great Tumblr Book Search, The Sequel is looking for funny Tumblr blogs that could potentially be turned into books. The idea is to find humor books without going through a formal submissions process. Rather than submit a book proposal, bloggers are encouraged to submit their Tumblr pages to the contest.
The contest is open to U.S. residents with Tumblr blogs, who can submit their blog throughout the month of March. The grand-prize winner will have their idea considered for publication and will be featured on the Chronicle Books Tumblr page. They will also earn a feedback session with a Chronicle Books editor, and $300 worth of Chronicle Books. Winners will be announced by April 30th.
In April, Chronicle Books is publishing a book by the winner of last year’s search Paul Laudiero. His book,Sh*t Rough Drafts reimagines first drafts of books and screenplays.
