Speculative Fiction: New Releases December 2013

Mulluane | Thursday, December 05, 2013 | Be the first to comment!


Because December is a huge month for new releases I am once again going to try something different.

This time I am using a Pinterest board embed to show new releases.

The great thing about this method is, as I pin new covers, the widget embed will update accordingly. All you need to do is bookmark this post and throughout the month you can check to see what I've added.



Now, about functionality. I did get to test this on an Android phone and there it works completely differently from the PC version. I don't have access to a laptop or tablet but I assume laptops with a mouse work same as my PC while anything with a touch screen works the same as mobile.

♥ On PC ♥

Clicking on the covers only gives you an option to repin or signup/login and is only useful if you have or want a Pinterest account. However, you can simply mouse over the covers to reveal the full description. You can also view the entire board by clicking on "See on Pinterest" at the bottom. You do not need an account. Once on Pinterest you will see all the books and their descriptions in one place and can click through to publisher's book page for even more info.

♥ On Mobile ♥

You will see nothing but a link that says "Follow Mulluane's board December 2013 New Speculative Releases Part Two on Pinterest" Tap the link and you will be taken to a mosaic of book covers similar to what PC viewers see inside this post.

Once you see the mosaic, you do want to click on the individual book covers. This takes you to the pin with its full description. Tap the cover once more and it will load the publisher's book page with more info. To make things even easier, Pinterest also included a thumbnail link at the bottom which takes you back to the mosaic itself. I was impressed not to mention tickled. 

Good job Pinterest!

Finally, I will be including the normal Affiliate links below the board in case you want to purchase any of the books for the holidays. As always, any purchases made through Affiliate links goes toward supporting my book addiction which in turn leads to more reviews for you to enjoy! 


Note: I noticed while setting up the affiliate links that Amazon has really low prices on some of these. In addition the print versions are within pennies of the Kindle offers. No idea how long these offers will last but it might be worth a look!

And as always, feedback on this feature is appreciated. Enjoy!
