I visited your blog and I love your rating system! It's a hoot. I did fill out the form for a review and promotion. Just so you know I am willing to send you two copies in print. If you are willing to do what you do, that is the least I can do. Thanks for considering my book. I am a newbie and I am trying to do this promoting thing without causing too much damage.
Thank you for the welcome! I have just been looking at your review site and am sending in a request form, your site is wonderful and I've signed up as a follower. I will check out your daughter's as well, kudos to her for setting up her own blog!
Thank you again for welcoming me, I appreciate it. :)
Christina, thank you so much for your welcome to the site. I look forward to getting to know more bloggers. I've bookmarked your blog and Caitlyn's. She is adorable and I can't wait to see what she does next. As soon as I figure out how to add links to my blog, I'll be adding both of you to my blogroll.
Thanks for the welcome. I am new to the book blogging world so it is great to find a place where people are so inviting and supportive. I just started my blog and would love for you to check it out. http://bookbloggerparadise.blogspot.com
I joined yours and your daughters blogs. They are awesome!
Thanks for the great welcome - it's good to be here. Your daughter's blog is adorable (as is she). Good for her! Oh, and followed you, too. It's nice to be in a place where everyone is so passionate - makes me feel right at home.
THANK YOU!!! for making me feel so welcome!!! I just started following your blog. I love the idea that you have your daughter review books too. I thought of having my son (he's 8) and my daughter (she's 5) read books and have them tell me what they thought. I think it will be an interesting review if i did that :)....Thanks again and Happy reading!!!
Just to introduce myself, I am a Brit living in Germany who loves to read and write. Under a different name, I’ve had seven books of film criticism published through three different publishers (one of which is soon to be translated into Chinese- the books not the publishers, that is).
I wrote my first novel about 20 years ago but like most first efforts, in retrospect , it was just painful, awful, self-centred, pretentious rubbish. The stuff I write now is much less self-centred.
What I write is hard to define by genre- YA mostly but in terms of tone it’s a mixture of funny and thought-provoking. That’s the aim, anyway. My books should ‘shake you up’ a little, maybe even change you as a person- after reading one, you should be a little happier, a little wiser maybe. These sound like lofty aims but I don’t want to spend thousands of hours writing words that simply wash over people. Who aspires to be forgettable?
My first ebook, Luke, I am Your Father, a darkly-comic tale of unplanned pregnancy from a male point of view, came out on Kindle last year. Memoir of a Gothic Girl, my latest book, tells the chaotic story of a 13-year-old girl who decides to embrace the dark side of life and ‘go Goth’ as a way of coping with pressures at home and school.
Forthcoming attractions include… Live Long and Prospero (about a bunch of lunatics on a lighthouse in 1983) which will appear in March and Rainbow (about farming, football and one very special cow) will emerge blinking into the daylight later in 2013.
I have about 10 more books ‘in the pipe’ as they say- hopefully more ‘hash’ or ‘half’ than ‘sewage’ but as ever, it is the readers who will decide.
Contrary to all received wisdom, I don’t Tweet or have a blog or a website. I do not even have a mobile phone (gasp). I should really be the leader of a Luddite cult. Maybe I am and no-one’s told me. I have, under duress, been persuaded to show my virtual face on Facebook. You can see more essential details on www.facebook.com/scott.pixello
Thank you for the welcome. I looked at your page....love the layout and your sense of humor with your readers making them "wait for it" in seeing the covers. Yes, I am new on these blogs, so I need to start figuring out how to best utilize these connections. Marketing is NOT my thing, but I figure I need to start making it my thing!
Thanks for the welcome. I have no clue what I am doing but hopefully I will pick it up as I go and so far folks have been really friendly.
I have checked out both yours and your daughters blogs and they both look great. I admit I am drawn to you daughter's blog as I write childrens books. I have added a link below to my blog. I would be very interested in your daughters opinion as let's face it, her opinion is of special importantance when it comes to whether or not I am getting it right!
Thank you for the welcome! I am new to blogs, but I really like your blogspot. I'll check out your daughters blog too, as my own kids love books.
