Movin' and Shakin' and Readin' and Writin'!

Hello my darling darlings.

I have missed you!

After Bout Of Books I took some very needed time away from all responsibilities that were not work focused. I needed some space from life to begin learning to cope with the tragedy that my family endured last month.  Basically, I did absolutely nothing with my free-time except read, watch Netflix, and sleep.

I've done a lot of necessary thinking about my priorities and have already begun to change up quite a few things in my life. Hopefully all for the better.

Thankfully, the blog made the cut. I want to keep it going, and I read so much anyway it's silly to shut the doors, especially when I have such an amazing blog family to support me.

However! There are going to be a few changes... the biggest change is as follows:

Tori and I will be considerably more picky about what books we accept from authors. As of this moment, unless it comes highly recommended by readers we trust, we will no longer accept read requests for self-published works. 

Sorry guys. We just get so many requests and we've read one too many self-pubs that haven't even seen an editor.  That's sort of the dark-side of the self-publishing industry.

We will, however, continue to offer marketing assistance to self-published authors via our Author Page.

Tori and I both have a huge list of backlogged reviews that we'll be getting out to you beginning tomorrow. 

Can't wait to begin enjoying the book blogging world with all of you again!

Read On!

  1. I'm glad that you took that much needed time to relax. Sometimes, we just need a break from everything.

    I too have become very picky about book review requests. In fact, I am almost not accepting ANY at the moment. So much is going on with my life plus I am neglecting my TBR pile at home that I had to make this decision. I feel less pressure now. I hope that you feel a great relief as well once you have less books to review.
