September 30,2013
Hi everyone! I have been doing this little blog for about 8 months now, and thanks to all the support, it has gotten bigger than I ever expected. There were a lot of big changes in my life this summer and I feel like I am so far behind. I get closer everyday to catching up, but I always feel like I am letting everyone down because I don’t have as many reviews done as I would like. Nicole with Ariesgrl Book Reviews has helped me with her awesome reviews(show her some love, she is an awesome reviewer ( .))

Her help has got me to thinking... I want to do a “Contest” of sorts to see if I can get a few more reviewers on board, to get you more reviews.

If you would like to do this, First fill out this form: 

Second, I will contact you to submit a review of your choice. Depending on the response to this, I am hoping to narrow it down to TOP 10.

Thirdly, Once we have it down to Top 10, I will send you a book (via Amazon-so you need a kindle or kindle app available to you). Once you have the book I have sent, then you read it and submit me a review on that book. The reason for this is so I know I've read the book and can really see your review style. I can also see turn around time.

Fourth, I will narrow from there to a TOP 5. Everyone in the TOP five will get A SWAG Pack (Each one is random with bookmarks, button, pens, magnets, etc. (could be any or all))

Finally,to the final contestants I will gift a book of your choice (up to $4.99) to submit a review on. (also via Amazon)

I hope that this will lead to good working relationship, to share more reviews with my followers.

To the people that choose to do this, reviews need to be on a professional level, by that I mean that I want reasons that you loved, or hated, said book. Don't just say “I hated it, worst book ever”, I want to know why you felt the way you did. (ie, character development, plot continuity, writing style, emotional level, etc.) You can give a break down of basic plot but also give the above (please don't give plot summary and then say “I really Loved it.”) I also want to give total credit to the reviewer with links to your page or blog, but I know that some people do not feel comfortable reviewing books under their real name, due to jobs or community, in this case you can have a pseudonym if you choose and stay anonymous.  Also, On a side note: I really like when reviewers put some of their favorite quotes from the book.  Not anything that would spoil the book, but things that made you laugh, cry, scream, etc. Lastly, please don't spoil the book for the readers, that just mean. If you feel the need to spoil a book, make sure you clearly state that a spoiler is coming (but, I prefer no Spoiling)

We have had some great submissions to Our GUEST REVIEW SEARCH/CHALLENGE. I foresee some awesome reviews coming soon. If you signed up for this and I haven't sent you a book to review, PLEASE PM me. I have received a request from a "LEAH S", I don't know if that's a real name or a pseudonym, but when I try to send you a message, I get a "Mailer-DEMON" sent back. So if you r out there Leah and you haven't heard from me, Please PM me on my FB page:

NOW, with that out of the way we have a few open slots for the first stage of the contest. I will close signups at Midnight Sunday. So if you ever wanted to do something like this, but don't have time to run a blog, then this is your chance to have your voice heard.

LINK Signup form:
You can message me at (actually submit a message, not on my wall/timeline, those tend to get lost)
Now onto the FUN stuff! We have a HUGE giveaway going on right now, PLEASE ENTER & SHARE!  Can't win if you don't play.  
I want to THANK everyone for there help and support in this venture into the blogging world & I love it.  If it wasn't for the great Author Support and then the fan support, I would not be where I am, so I truly APPRECIATE each and EVERYONE of YOU!
