About Me:
David Makinson was born in London in 1964. He now lives near Bolton in Lancashire with his wife, Chris and Giles, his son from his first marriage. Survivor of two complex childhood heart surgeries, David continues to tick off his list of ambitions, which so far has included flying a plane, building and riding motorcycles, dog-sledging in the Rockies, learning to play two musical instruments, tasting some of the world's finest wines and watching his son score five centuries at cricket. David sold his share of a business in 2008, enabling him to fulfill his greatest ambition - to write a novel. 'Just a One Night Stand' is his debut novel, published in paperback in March 2010 with Kindle and Smashwords e-book versions published in August 2011. Learn more at www.davidmakinson.com.

Hello and Welcome!  I'm kind of new myself - still figuring things out, but so far it seems like everyone is pretty friendly and willing to help/give suggestions if you get stuck, which is a very good thing since this place can be kind of overwhelming!  If there's anything I can help with let me know...

And if you have a second, please stop by my blog - www.Jill-Elizabeth.com - I'm always happy to get comments and/or new followers!   

Be sure to check out my latest giveaway too...  Like scary stories?  What about Robert Johnson/sell-your-soul tales?  Then do I have a book for you - Voice by Joe Garraty is a rock-n-roll tale that spins out the traditional "deal with the devil" in a powerfully written way.  Check out my review and enter to win your copy here: 


Again, welcome and good luck here!

Hi there, welcome to Book Blogs!

I’m new myself to the site but so far I've found it a great place to meet other blogger friends, so you’ve definitely come to the right place if you want to network with other book lovers and writers. If you’re a fan of paranormal fiction, please give my debut novel Perpetual Night a look. I’m planning to do a giveaway in the near future GoodReads (Click here for my Author Page). And here’s the link to my blog Diary of a Writer in Progress where I talk about my own experiences becoming a published author and review some books for fellow writers.

Now tell me about you, your blog, and favorite books!

Hiya. Welcome to Book Blogs!

I’ve met many of my closest blogger friends on here, so you’ve definitely come to the right place if you want to network with other book lovers and strut your reviewing stuff. Yippee! 

If you’re a fan of paranormal fiction, please give my upcoming novel Farsighted a gander. I’m setting up a 100+ blog launch and would love to have you on board as a tour host. Let me know if you are interested in joining and receiving a digital ARC. And here’s the live action book trailer to whet your appetite...

Now tell me a bit about you, your blog, and favorite books!

Hi! Welcome to book blogs! I hope you enjoy the site and all the wonderful people here! I have a book review blog that is beneficial to readers and authors alike! (At least I like to think so) haha. I have the normal book reviews, author interviews, and GIVEAWAYS! But I also have a page dedicated to authors. On this page you can find the request form and all promotions I am willing to do for an author. I don't discriminate...I love Indie authors as well as any other author! I also have TOURS available! I hope you will check it out. http://intoxicatedbybooks.blogspot.com/. I would also like to let you know about the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop that I am hosting this year. This is the first annual hop and I would love for more bloggers to join in! It's going to be loads of fun! You can find the post explaining the hop here: http://intoxicatedbybooks.blogspot.com/2011/10/12-days-of-christmas-blog-hop.html
