Hello!  I haven't posted in this forum before, but I recognize many of you from other forums.  I've been participating in many swaps over the past few months, and I think I'm finally ready to host my own.  My idea is for a game using books that are either based on or are the basis for paranormal TV shows (i.e. Buffy, Charmed, Angel, Dresden Files, etc.).  I have two questions, and would appreciate any feedback you folks can give me.  First, do you think there would be enough interest in this theme for the game to actually run?  Second, do you think there are enough of these books floating around out there to make the swap work?  I'd appreciate your feedback, positive and negative.  Thanks!

By the way, if I think it will work, I'm planning on running it in early-mid January.

I like the paranormal genre but haven't read anything related to TV shows, so count me out. But there are lots of others. Good luck!

I dont see there being enough just out of this genre but you could do one of books that were made into tv shows. There are a lot of them.

I read primary paranormal...and while I'm a huge fan of most the paranormal TV series....I don't read the books.  I think you would have better luck if it wasn't TV related....you would draw more people.

I agree that you probably would have to do TV show books in general because there probably isn't enough in just the paranormal genre!  And I would sooo be in !!!

Hi Angela - as you know, that's exactly what I did.  :)  Thanks to all of you for the feedback - I think opening it to all TV shows was a good idea.
