Thanks for the invitation to visit your blog, I have just finsihed my tour, which I enjoyed very much. I hope to upgrade my blog to something similiar in the near future. Needless to say, I am now your newest follower and I would appreciate a follow back. My blog is; http://www.richardsravesbooks.blogspot.ca
Please feel free to leave any comments or helpful advise. Thanks.
My name is Jay Siva. I'm an author with 4 books published in total. I am also the founder of EZBuyButton.com, it's an easy "buy book" widget for authors. I created it out of sheer necessity for promoting and marketing my own books, and it's been so effective I wanted to let other authors use it as well, which is why I've made it 100% free for anyone who wants to use my EZBuyButton widget.
I'd love to get feedback from authors like you, and I invite anyone to try it out. I saw immediate improvements in my sales, so I'd really like to see it help other authors as well.
I will definitely check it out and appreciate the welcome. We have received 5-star reviews by several Reader's Favorite reviewers and our book, Slapped By Injustice, was a finalist in the category of Realistic Fiction this past fall.
The sequel to our first book The Compton Connection will be out in early 2013. We would love to have reviews and I am interested in reviewing other people's works.
I am not a reviewer, but I -DO- supply (electronic) review copies of my books to anyone interested. I have a fantasy trilogy (suitable for older teens and adults) a space opera series of five books (under the pen name K.J. Blaine) and a series of interactive Kindle books for girls (mermaid fantasy).
I also respond to interview requests as long as the interviewer supplies the questions in advance and allows me to skip anything I deem irrelevant or inappropriate.
Thank you for the welcome to Book Blogs, if you need anybody to contribute reviews of book just let me know. I have reviewed every genre of books, also if you need books to review I know a few authors who are looking for reviewers and are willing to give a copy of their book, as long as the get an honest review.
Thanks for the welcome on Book Blogs. I have written a review for a book which I'd like to post on your blog. Let me know how to do that please. I'm looking for someone to review one of my books...an historical romance about Charlemagne's first wife who was banished, along with their son.
I admit that I do find this website confusing and have been overwhelmed with posts! I may even have responded to some people more than once and for that I apologize. I'm looking for reviewers of my book The Haunting of M.E. This is a ghost story set in Algonquin Park in northern Ontario. The book is for junior readers aged 10-12 and is VERY family friendly. I would be happy to send the book for free to anyone willing to review. I would also be happy to do an author interview. If you're interested please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much!
I would love to share reviews with you. Please send me the template. Also, it would be great if you could review my books. They are adult mysteries/women's lit. I'll e mail as well so you have the address.
Kelli; Although I'm honoured that you have considered me as a qualified book reviewer BUT let me assure you I'm not a reviewer in any stretch of the imagination. It wouldn't be fair to the author who's invested so much time & effort for me to judgmental in either a positive or negative way. I'm a documentary filmmaker who's just finished writing a non-fiction book of some of my most exciting & far-flung adventures over 35 years and I think I should just leave it at that. I wish you all the best in your search for far more talented people than myself. Best, Michael Boland
Hi Kellie, thanks for the comment. I'm not a great writer, and would definitely hesitate to offer to work on reviews to your site - not too sure I'll be much help there.
However - I am a pretty good programmer and designer... and I've been working on a ad sharing network for book blogs to help increase readership. I'm looking for beta partners to help me launch the service - would you be interested? I'd love to design a custom button/ad for you (which would then get displayed on other book blog sites).
I've asked the panel several times to help me with placing my books on the site, but all I've received is requests for me to follow their blogs. While I have every intention of reading other writer's blogs, this still hasn't answered my question.
I'm beginning to wonder if all this 'following' is a waste of time and merely a means to gather some sort of popularity among members.
I had assumed that the main purpose of us all (writers) is to get more sales of our books and that the social aspect of this site and others is, however pleasant, secondary to our purpose.
Can you tell me if any of this 'socialising' has made any difference to any writer's sales? Is there some sort of indicator that proves that this stuff actually works?
I might seem harsh and cold-hearted, but I need to know whether all the time spent away from my 'proper' writing is worth the candle.
At the moment I can't take on a blog I'm afraid. I just published for the first time and am trying to get my own blog running, I have a new Facebook page and am new here, I've joined Author Central... I'll get used to juggling it all, but it does take time. So I won't take more on at the moment; maybe in future.
Meanwhile I'm finding my way around the site OK, bit by bit. Thanks for the offer though, I'll let you know if I struggle. Cheers
Hi Kelli, I just started following your blog. Very nice! Would love it if you could check out my blog at http://soniafogal.blogspot.com/p/home.html and follow me back! I’m just getting started with it but have gotten my first book review posted. I would love to do some reviews for you! Please send me details and we'll get something going! Have a great Thanksgiving!
