About this project
Have you ever read a highly-recommended book only to be disappointed? Do you ever wonder about those terrific new authors whose work you have not yet discovered? Women Love Stories is a project that brings together new writers of fiction and "their" readers.
Here's how it works: We will reach out to independent publishers of about-to-be-released works of fiction that received good reviews from sources we trust. Each selected book will initially be read by a panel of 50 women randomly chosen from an existing community of 2200 avid readers who have already volunteered for this project. Each of these women has taken a short online scientifically validated personality survey designed to measure, among other things, their taste in fiction. Readers who also take the same short personality survey can be instantly "matched" to reviewers with similar profiles and see their book recommendations. In preliminary tests with small groups of readers, the method seems to work quite well.
The WomenLoveStories website is a new project of my non-profit organization that helps women live better lives (www.mayflowerworld.org).
