The goings-on & a "thank you"
First of all, I'd like to give a huge thank you to the kind and lovely Barbara over at Happily Forever After for mentioning my Toni Blake contest. I really appreciate the media attention *g* For those of you who've never been to Barbara's blog, I strongly urge you to do so. She's created a fun and interesting place to hang out, and I have to give her credit for pointing me in the direction of some really great books. So stop on by and say "hey". She totally rocks.
I just finished reading Jennifer Haymore's "A Hint of Wicked", which will be released on June 1st. Right now I'm struggling with my review, trying to encompass all I want to say without giving too much away, but I don't want to be so skimphy that I'm not giving enough information either. Every once in awhile a book will do that to me, where I just can't find the words. For a wonderfully insightful review, definitely check out Ana's review at Booksmugglers. I'm so jealous of her LOL. Basically I agree with everything she said, but I'm reviewing it so I need to just sit down and focus. I'm thinking a re-read is in order. Because I can't go on to reading the next book until I finish this review. I don't want any distractions with this one.
Does anyone else review like that? Read the book then do the review without starting to read a new story? Or can you go from book to book and not have it be a problem to write reviews for several books at one time? Usually I try to write the review right away, while it's fresh in my mind, no matter how much I want or even need to read. I don't have the best memory, so it's better if I do it that way. The problem is, like now, when I can't find the words. And please don't take this as an indication it's a bad book, because it's not. It's just a little out of the norm. So yeah, I got homework.
And don't forget that tomorrow is the last day to enter my Toni Blake contest. Remember, I want to hear about your favorite bad boy. So if you don't answer the question, you won't be in the drawing. And anyone can enter, no matter where you live. It just might take a little longer for me to send out the book, but you WILL get it.
I also have another interview in the works, so once I get my questions answered, I'll post more on that. And yes, there will be another book giveaway. I haven't done interviews in awhile, and forgot how much I love doing them. So I'm going to start up again and see what happens. Any author requests? I'll see what I can do *g*
And now for my burning question of the day:
