I apologize if I'm not supposed to post a discussion after sending a message -- I'm new (or newly returned after a long absence) and thought the message was a post. . . .I'm hunting for reviews for my novel Wander Home, a family drama with mystery and romance elements set in a re-imagined afterlife. Heeeere's the blurb:Death is what you make it. . . .Eleanor never wanted to leave the daughter she loved so much.

A science fiction novel to suggest (mine, that is)

I hope I've understood how this group works. If indie authors are free to propose their books for the group to read, then I have. If not, my apologies!My self-published science fiction novel Twin-Bred asks: can interspecies diplomacy begin in the womb? Humans have lived on Tofarn, planet of creeks and rivers, for seventy years, but they still don’t understand the Tofa. The Tofa are an enigma, from their featureless faces to the four arms that sometimes seem to be five. They take arbitrary…See More

New science fiction novel - would love reviewers (and readers :-) )

My science fiction novel, Twin-Bred, is out today!  Great timing - it's my older daughter's birthday, and she has had a lot to do with my decision to write the book. And she's the cover artist! (She's an art student at Savannah College of Art and Design, so she's qualified.)I'd love to have some more reviews, and I can provide a Smashwords coupon so reviewers can get the book for free. (Email me for the coupon code.)Twin-Bred is available for sampling and/or purchase at the following…See More

hard to say, but perhaps Mary Doria Russell's The Sparrow
About Me:
I am an appellate attorney, photographer, political junkie, and mother of two daughters, living in a county outside a town in Indiana. I am a lifelong reader and sometimes an author. I read science fiction, historical fiction, biography, history, 18th and 19th Century English classics, mysteries, YA, and once in a while a bit of fantasy. I write science fiction, general fiction and picture books -- so far.

Hello!
Do you want to help a child to get some friends
through her book blog? :) I have a blog and I'd get glad if you
could visit it. It is necessary to divulge
my work since I want to turn it into a big
book space for all.

Hi Karen,

Great to hear from you! I'll be checking you blog and book very soon. I also have a Goodreads Page that you can peruse whenever there's an opening on your obviously super busy schedule. :D

Take care and enjoy your week.

Yup, your book needn't be published yet. Mine doesn't come out for another 3 weeks, but it's been on GoodReads for at least 6 - and almost 400 people have added it! You just need to have a book you can claim to get author status. You can manually add your book before publication too.

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!

Great start! Let me know if you find Red Room to be useful. I've talked to a number of author friends who are on it but just don't see the point.

Send the link to your GoodReads profile if you'd like one more friend/fan ;-)

Wow, so you have a lot going on. We're peas in a pod :-)

Word of advice:  Build your blog as part of your book release. Also get active on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and GoodReads. It makes a huge difference in sales. Trust me on this one, I'm a book publicist!
