Hi, I came across your blog, and I thought you would be the perfect person to contact.

My name is Jay Siva, the founder of, an easy 'buy book' widget for authors. I'm contacting you today because I think you and your readers would love to know about the EZBuyButton widget I've created.

It is the most advanced 'buy now' widget for selling books. I make it free for authors and publishers, worldwide, to quickly and easily create and use our EZBuyButton widget to place on their website or blog to immediately increase the sales of their books, especially if their books are listed for sale in more than one retail store. I made it super easy, with just a few clicks they just copy & paste a piece of code onto their website/blog, and they're done.

The widget allows website visitors to select which device they'd like to use to read the author's book, and then select their preferred retail store that they'd like to purchase the book from. It also geolocates the visitor's location and will send the visitor to the correct country specific retail store so that they can buy the author's book. The widget is also fully customizable, and the author will have access to detailed real-time statistics of the use of their widget.

I would like to invite you to visit my website, and try out the EZBuyButton widget. I hope you find that my widget will be useful to you and your readers, including all the authors, literary agents, and publishers you're in contact with.

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you. Thank you for your time.

kindest regards,
Jay Siva

Hi Bethany,

Well, I stopped by to write you a question about the bookblogs ning and found we share another aspect of our lives in common:  Chickens!  Right now, I have only two hens in their mobile Independence Tractor with Freedom Loft (my Dave completed construction on the 4th of July a few years back), but planning to raise a couple more chicks come spring.

Anyhoo:  My question, as a fairly new book blogger, is whether I could help set up a more static page (or pages) here with "best practices" for book bloggers.  Basic "what works", "what's considered cool/uncool, ethical/not", "how to...participate in a blog tour, do a giveaway, get followers w/out acting obnoxious", "if you admire someone's blog, is it important to follow them", etc.  I've read the groups, forums, and while they're helpful, they're very cumbersome to navigate and although one can glean a loose concensus on some issues, it's a tad dicey.  Obviously, I wouldn't necessarily be the most appropriate person to create these best practices, but I could offer a draft and then, say, once/month or two I could open it up for comments, then maybe do a survey to adjust? (rather like your "rules of the book blogs" page, only with regular times for reviewing comments & revision)

I have a bit of time right now, and with your permission would be fine spending some time setting it up.

All the best to you, your family, and your chickens (in their palatial setting!),

Have a great weekend.

Book Lover:

On Jan 9th, 2010 my debut novel, SUGAR will celebrate its 10th anniversary and in order to commemorate this milestone I am campaigning to sell 10,000 copies between now and that date.

“Bernice L. McFadden's first novel begins with the brief, poetic description of a crime so startling that the reader is helplessly drawn in, as if a bright red door stood ajar on a bleak and forbidding house. Pearl Taylor's daughter, Jude, has been found murdered and mutilated near a field at the edge of town. "The murder had white man written all over it," writes McFadden. "But no one would say it above a whisper. It was 1940. It was Bigelow, Arkansas. It was a black child. Need any more be said?" In the years that follow, Pearl catches sight of Jude in so many strangers that when Sugar Lacey comes to town and sets up her unwholesome "business" in the house next door, she doesn't know whether to believe what she sees in Sugar's face: a striking similarity to Jude, dead 15 years. In her sedate but supple prose--rising at times to a light, unforced lyricism in the description of landscape or character--the author perfectly renders the closed and protective society of a small Southern town, the superstitions, gossip, and prying.”

I’m asking that you purchase a copy of SUGAR for yourself, a friend or family member. And if you could help spread the word by blogging, twittering ad Face-booking my campaign, it would mean the world to me.

Peace & Light,

Bernice L. McFadden

Thank you! I'm sure at will -- there's so much for me to look at!

Read your profile -- you do Spanish-English translating? That's awesome. :) I keep wanting to improve my Spanish, but my local language buddy disappeared on me, so I haven't practiced in a year. It's aweful!

Thank you for the welcome wagon! :) I'm just kick-starting my own book blog. Hopefully it'll be up and running in a day or two. :)
