Getting to know them…

Tell us about your blog!

Inner Goddess began as a place readers to chat with each other about the books they love in the Romance and Erotica genre. We found that readers had been ashamed to admit they read such books, and we wanted to create a place where they would feel welcome to gush over their favorite characters and authors. We are not reviewing the books, we are just talking about what we liked (or didn’t) in a book club format. The forum is divided into sub-genres: soft romance, graphic romance, menages, paranormal, BDSM, GLBT, and Vintage. That way readers can quickly find book genres they like. Guests can view, but only members can post. Members can even add books to the ones already listed. We have Spotlight Books and Spotlight Vendors, along with games and buying links. Lisa Renee Jones was our first Spotlight Author.

Then authors joined our site and it became even more exciting as they dropped by with excerpts and giveaways. We added a blog feature to give back to the authors, to give them a place to reach out to their fans. It now features an author’s blog roll, a twitter feed, a book convention calendar, a Goodreads and Facebook group, and weekly giveaways. We hosted Best of the Year awards nominated and voted on by members. On Mother’s Day, we are hosting a charity auction to benefit cancer survivors who are rebuilding their lives: all auction items are donated by our author friends. It is called Warrior Goddesses.

When was it established?
Inner Goddess was formed in May 2012. Three friends that had talked books with each other on forums for years realized that each liked to read the sexier romance books. We decided to open our own forum, believing other women were closet readers like us. We brought in another friend and built the site. The three main moderators of the site are TinkNCognito, pearls, and Queenie.

What Genres do you feature?
We post about all sub-genres of Romance: Historical, Paranormal, Military, Contemporary, Menage, Western, SciFi, BDSM, Erotica, Vintage, GLBT. The blogs are guest authors who request a week on the calendar. Lisa Renee Jones was the first author to line up and request to blog. The blogs are posted on Sunday and run through the week. We’ve had new authors who self published their first book and experienced authors with multiple series.

What should readers know about your blog?
We want them to imagine they are sitting in our living room talking about their favorite with us. We want to share our favorite books and hear recommendations for more to read. We hope they will come and post on the forum with us.

We are having a month long birthday party this May. We are giving away signed books to members, and the more you post, the more chances you have to win. We will be having blog tours and snippets from authors on our blog this month. And we will hosting an auction called Warrior Goddesses on eBay May 12-18 with signed books and other goodies donated by a diverse group of authors.

What would you like Authors and Publishers to know about Inner Goddess?
I was told by an author on our Goodreads group that she was afraid to post because other groups would bash her for self-promotion. We are the opposite. We want authors to come tell us about their books. And we love talking to authors. We are happy to have authors as members. Both publishers and authors are welcome to contact us about adding their books to our forum or the blog calendar.
