I have 41 followers??? When did this happen? I swear the last time I looked I hadn't quite reached 20 yet. I'm so touched, impressed, excited!
I'm also so close to 50. So if I do make it to 50 followers, I will have a special giveaway. Not sure what yet, but I'll think of something. Perhaps a crochet vampire, perhaps a special book, or maybe something I haven't quite thought of yet.
Thank you everyone for sticking around and seeing where this takes me. I really like the book review curve I have been on recently. And getting an opportunity to review other stuff is almost as exciting. But nothing beats the thrill I get when I receive a newly printed book in the mail that isn't even on the shelves yet. It's like being welcomed to the front of the line for free cake.
Where am I headed as I go forward. Well so far I haven't turned on advertising. I don't do this for the money, as I said free books RULE! As I move forward I do hope to keep going out after books to review. If I get more and more followers, that will get easier to do. After all, book reviews are advertising for the books. More followers, the more willing they are to toss a book at me.
It also means more giveaways. Once again, it has to do with advertising and the more people I have in my corner, the more the publishers will be willing to throw my way. I'm learning a lot, this will never be my job but it's a hell of a hobby!
I'd also like to give a big thanks to Eric with Quirk Books for getting me started. He sent me my first books to review and keeps me in mind when they need reviewers.
And if you want a new book to check out, he actually wrote one called Textual Healing. I'm dying to read this one, but haven't managed to snag a copy yet. :) I have heard very good things about it though.
