“Thank You” to Those Who Review

I received two pleasant, and totally unexpected surprises, on Thursday.  When I clicked on my email account, I found an email from Carole at “The Romance Reviews.”  She was letting me know that Magic Moment was the featured review that day and had given me the link.

That was my first surprise. 

My second surprise was that Tiffy, who had written the review, had given the book four out of five stars!
On Friday morning, I started thinking about all the folks out there who write the reviews we read on blogs and e-newsletters.  Each day I receive anywhere from 30 to 40 emails from book review blogs, and I’m sure there are probably hundreds more out there that I haven’t seen, let alone filled out a subscription request.  

Often, as authors and perhaps readers, we forget that the writers of those reviews are volunteers.  They read books and write reviews for no other reason than they love books.  Their only compensation is the book they've read.  

So, a big, heartfelt “thank you” and kudos to all of you volunteer reviewers out there for offering your time to read, to write…and, to post.

"Chicks" with "Swagger"

Fellow From the Heart Romance Writer members, Misty Dietz, Josie Matthews, Angela McCallister, Renee Ann Miller, Rachael Slate, and Vonnie Davis, along with Personal Fitness Trainer, Jodi Roper write an awesome blog, "Chick Swagger." Posts range from inspirational to funny to helpful, to sometimes downright raunchy -- but you're always assured a good read.

I have the link to Josie Matthews' February 6, 2013 post (thank you, Josie and Misty!).  Titled, "Roses are Red, Bruises are Blue..." you'll never quite look at Valentine's Day the same way again.

Happy Reading!

Tears of joy filled my eyes when I saw Blogger's issues with inserting images had been ironed out.  I was so afraid that I wouldn't be able to show you this fabulous ad created by Goddess Fish.

Thank you, Blogger!!
