I’ve been passionate about reading for as long as I can remember. My first series I started with was The Babysitter’s Club: Little Sister. The more I read, the more I imagined different situations and story lines which further led me to writing and getting a Bachelor’s Degree in English in Creative Writing. In May of this year, I published my first novel, More Than You Know and I am almost finished with my second novel, Like Crazy. During the publishing process, I became aware of the extreme importance of ratings and reviews for an Indie author, let alone all authors. Marilyn and I have been friends for awhile now and share a lot of common interests in books. So we thought we would start a review/blog tour website that helps authors get their books out there. Using my English and Writing degree, along with my knowledge of formatting (both physical books and ebooks), I will be providing my formatting services as well.
My favorite books include: The Redhead Series by Alice Clayton, Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day, Boycots and Barflies by Victoria Michaels, The Edge of Never by J. A. Redmerski, Wallbanger by Alice Clayton, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, Anything written by Emily Giffin, Almost anything written by Nicholas Sparks, The Pact by Jodi Picoult, The Harry Potter Series and The Twilight Saga.
You can almost always find me tweeting, reading, writing, blogging or working. I love meeting and talking with new authors and I look forward to working with you!
I can easily say I have never been an avid reader until recently. Is has never been a passion until I found the right nitch of book… Low and behold after reading The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer, I was introduced to fan-fiction, who knew what lay ahead… LOL. After reading FSOG, I was introduced to a whole new world… My passion to read came from reading passion… Learning there was so much out there to read, I became addicted. I broke down and got a kindle and my book consumption has become craziness, all in a very good and I must say HOT way. After reading Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren, my personal favorite, I was hooked, a new addiction starting… Now, many books later, including The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day, The Gabriel’s/Professor Emerson Series by Sylvain Reynard, Hopeless, by Colleen Hoover the list could goes on.
With my reading being so engrossing, I had two friends publish books. One being my counterpart , Alexandria (@A_L_Rhodes) released “More Than You Know” which I had the pleasure to read an advanced read copy (ARC). It was so good and it just captured me beginning to end. Another one that captured me was “The Cliff” by @ChristieAGucker ,who has two books out, which was just amazing and showed what it took to have a relationship and be a good friend. Then came “The Purple Heart” (where I was graciously acknowledged in her book). Her second book is about a military & PTSD subject. Having worked at a military facility myself, I was not only in love with the story, I was able to use my own personal knowledge to understand it that much more.
Between these 2 amazing ladies, authors Christina Lauren (@lolashoes & @seeCwrite) and others ,I’ve found out how wonderful so many of these ladies are, normal everyday ladies, mom’s and woman like myself but also so sweet and just real.
Now Alex & I want to encourage reading, help new authors, share passion stories and delve into a new genre explosion with so much to share.
