Our recent feature is "Blogs of the Week." Each week, we feature a reader blog (which has to be sent to us) and an author blog (which can either be sent to us, or we'll pick one at random). Please check out the blogs we are sharing. We're sure the bloggers would love some friendly comments on their posts or a follow.
To have your blog featured for a future shout out, please e-mail us. The blogs can be anything: personal, book themed or something else you're interested in that you write about (movies, fashion, pets, career, etc.)
Important: We are going to be phasing out this feature as we move along in 2012. Therefore, we will only be taking blog submissions until December 31st. Any blogs received after that date will not be featured. Anything we receive before that date will be featured starting in February, as we have currently been accommodating blogs on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you!
DizzyC's Little Book Blog
Carol is a stay-at-home mum to three children between the ages of 4 and 17. She lives in East Anglia, England and book blogging is her hobby. Her blog is mainly book related with a dash of family life thrown in. Over the years, she has held a variety of jobs which include working in shops, offices and schools. She's currently having a work break until her youngest goes to full-time school next year. Her blog (which was intended as a little project to showcase what she's been reading) has grown considerably over the last 15 months and she loves being part of the blogging community. She has had the opportunity to showcase some wonderful authors over the last year and review some lovely novels for publishers, along with her own collection of books. You can find her at Facebook and Twitter, as well.
Melinda Curtis-romance author
Although Melinda has lived in Georgia and Texas, she's a California girl at heart. Her earliest memories are of life on an isolated 50-acre sheep ranch in rural Sonoma County, California. Melinda currently lives in the California's hot central valley with her husband - her basketball playing, college sweetheart. With three kids, the couple has done the soccer thing, the karate thing, the dance thing, the Little League thing and, of course, the basketball thing.
Aside from writing, Melinda runs a successful marketing consulting business,juggles the demands of family and "things", arranges sleeping pillows for two cats and allows two big Labs believe they're protecting her when someone knocks on the door.
Melinda's novels are about women who don't realize how strong they are until a hero comes along to show them, while capturing the wry humorous power struggle of falling in love - "because, really, who lets the man have the last word?"
Her latest novels are "Amber Rules" and "Finding Logan McCall." She can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
