Mom, Wife, went to the college of hard knocks and love to read. My first book...Valley of the Dolls at the grand age of 12. I now read mostly paranormal genre, because I love the idea of "Other". Found I like writing about the books as much as reading either with reviews or blogging. I've interviewed authors and meant some great people, because of this. I've been reviewing books for at least 6 yrs, but recently started my own website Risqué Reviews www.risquereviews.com
When I decided to add a blog spot to my website it was just with the intention for commentaries and a nice option for “guest” to be added. I liked that and I’m Just Saying…was born. As I became more familiar with the blogging world I became more intrigue. I thought this might be good option to expand on and avenue so to speak, linked, but separate from my website to reach more people and that is how Reviewer Extraordinaire got started. http://barbaramazzuca.blogspot.com/
Risqué Reviews we write honest and thoughtful book reviews intended to fairly represent the authors' work while providing readers with the information they need to make informed buying decisions concerning their reading material.
Our sub-genres include but are not necessarily limited to: BDSM, Contemporary, Fantasy, Futuristic/Sci-Fi, GLBT (Gay/Lesbian/Bi-Sexual/Transgender), Historical/Western, Horror, Paranormal, Romantic Comedy, Rubenesque, Shapeshifter, Time Travel and Vampire.
Risqué Reviews accepts submissions for all genres: mainstream romance, erotic romance, mystery/suspense, etc. we do not however except Young Adult. This site is geared with adults in mind and therefore does contain material some may consider not suitable for young adults.

So you can understand why we don't review books intended for Young Adults
What does mainstream romance mean?
What’s the difference between say Contemporary and Mainstream Romance. Well, to understand that you first have to understand what a mainstream novel is. It can be just about anything there are no guidelines for its characters or plot and anything pretty much goes it may have romance in it and it may not. It may or may not have a happy ending. It will almost always have one or more subplots that can affect the main plot. Confused yet?
Mainstream books often appeal to readers of different genres, because if you look at them closely, you'll see they often each carry the overtones of a genre -- romance, horror, mystery, science fiction, etc.
So a mainstream romance is a book with an element of romance (the romance isn’t the main plot, but a subplot) and because of that element of romance and romantic tone, the book appeals to romance readers.

Yes, Barbara I know exactly what you mean. I have an insights view on my fan page on Facebook, and I see that I get hundreds of hits and reads, but none of them subscribe? I don't get it. Some will comment, but most will comment to me on facebook instead of the blog? And I see other blogs where there are thousands of subscribers and I'm like wow, how the hell are they doing it? I usually post once a week, because I work a 9 to 5, but I don't think if I posted everyday anything would change? I wish those that comment to me on my fan page would do so on the blog, but can't seem to get people to do that? I wish I knew the secret because I have a very nice following on facebook, but can't get the fans to crossover to the blog, and it has everything they need. So I offered a giveaway and a wal--mart gift card as an incentive, and we'll see what happens? You're the only person I've heard from on Book Blogs? I know we all have the same goals, but it would be helpful if more people who follow you and in turn I'd follow them. But we'll see.
Hi Barbara, I couldn't stop laughing at your post. I do those crazy things too. I don't believe I got your message about helping me get people to subscribe to my blog. I get lots of people who read it, but I can't get them to subscribe. I have like 6 members, and it would be nice to get more. I'm trying to write interesting things about writing, etc., but not sure what more I need to do. It's all so damn frustrating, but I see so many blogs doing successfully and I'd like to try my hand at it at least. I'm goinmg to put my blog on here too, but in the meantime it's, http://mellojune.blogspot.com Thanks again for helping me!
Thank you for accepting my friend request. I greatly appreciate it. Also, I have a question, how in the world do you get people to subscribe to your blog? I have many people who have read my blog, but they don't sign up? I've joined several blogs, but can't seem to get people to do that for me? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks again, Barbara.
