WHAT IT IS

My platform is largely dedicated to promoting books written by marginalized identities, but of course, as someone who was born and has lived in Southeast Asia for all her life, I have a soft spot for Asian representation. The same holds true for fellow Asian readers and book bloggers — we all know the struggles, yeah?

Hence, one of my projects is to build an extensive directory of Asian book bloggers. I hope to use this directory to give Asian book bloggers the visibility and recognition they deserve, as well as to help them find opportunities (e.g. authors/publishers in search of #ownvoices book reviewers).

HOW TO GET YOURSELF LISTED ON THE DIRECTORY

1. Apart from the obvious (i.e. being Asian), you must blog about books — be it regularly or infrequently. As long as you consider yourself as a book blogger, then you are qualified for the directory.

2. Fill out this form. By submitting a response, your blog name and link will be publicly displayed on this page.

3. Kindly note that with your consent, I will forward a copy of the information you will provide to authors and/or publishers, should they request for it. You can, however, opt against this. Withholding your permission will not prohibit you from appearing on the public directory.

4. After filling out the form, make it official! Grab this button and display it at any visible part of your blog or website. Share it with pride!

Simply copy this code and paste it on your page:

HOW TO REQUEST A COPY OF THE DIRECTORY
