  1. Hi Jackie
    I have just happened on your site by accident – while checking layouts of other blogs. I clicked on yours because of the picture of the water. Then just loved the appearance of your blog with all the books. Lovely! Have you read them all? Ha!

    I started reading and noticed that you do reviews. I don’t know if you would be interested, but I’m a new author and have recently published two books on Amazon Kindle. I have created blogs to help promote both books. I would be very interested in having reviews, if you were interested, and if you have time.

    My blogs describe the books, if you would like to have a quick look and see what they’re about. My novel is under my pen-name (J.A. Brooks). The blogs are at:

    Best regards

    • Hi Jude: unfortunately, I don’t own a Kindle! However, I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for new authors, and it’s crucial these days for new authors (and even established ones) to take advantage of what social and new media has to offer. Your elf girl novel looks like a great YA or even early reader choice (I have daughters in third grade, so I think of them)–best of luck in this exciting new chapter, and thanks for stopping by!
