Hello everyone, I'm looking for anyone (reviewer/blogger/reader) that would be interested in reviewing my debut novel, In the Beginning. I have digital ARCs available in the format of your choice.

If interested, please email me at:



Twenty-year-old Lauren Thompson left her small town in Michigan to begin a new life in the Big Apple where no one knows her name or the tragedy that had rocked her family fifteen years prior. With new friends and an intriguing new love interest, starting over is easier than she expected...but Mishca Volkov isn't what he seems. As the son of a Russian Mob boss, he thrives in a world of chaos and fear, earning the title of Bratva Captain through blood and pain.

When the two cross paths, lines blur and passions ignite, bringing them closer than they could ever imagine. Until secrets from the past threaten to tear them apart. Can they fight past their demons...or were they doomed by fate before they ever met.

**Book Two: Until the End Coming Spring 2014**

Genre: New Adult

The newest book by Kalamazoo author Bonnie Jo Campbell, Once Upon a River is getting a huge reception around the book world, including a listing in Newsweek's books to read this summer. It is fascinating! One of the most unique female protagonist that you are likely to meet. My review:

Delete Comment            I enjoyed reading The Long-Shining Waters by Danielle Sosin. It is a lyrical and beautifully written novel about Lake Superior and three women who lived on its shores. Although written by a Minnesotan, it has some lovely passages about the circle tour of Lake Superior, Pictured Rocks, and the Michigan coastline. You can find my reflections about it here:
