Announcing The Great Tumblr Book Search: Submit Your Book Idea!

It’s official: Chronicle Books LOVES Tumblr. In fact, last year we not only joined the social network, but we also published two hilarious books that started as successful Tumblrs: Dads Are the Original Hipsters and F*ck! I’m in My Twenties. And that gave us an idea!

We’re excited to announce The Great Tumblr Book Search. This joint effort with Tumblr could be your big break, helping you get your hilarious book idea on the top of the submissions pile.

Here’s how it works. Pitch us your laugh-out-loud funny book idea using Tumblr. You can use text, photos, animated gifs, artwork, videos—just get our attention. Then our editors will judge the entries and choose a grand-prize winner whose idea will be considered for publication. You may use an existing Tumblr or create a new Tumblr to illustrate your book idea. Just remember: we’re looking for humor.
