Book Blogger Hop
I stumbled on this Hop over at Just Another Girl and Her Books, and since I haven’t done more than the monthly #IWSG Hop in quite a long time, I thought I’d give this a whirl. I like the idea that each week there’s question to answer and so many book bloggers I haven’t met yet! Besides, I need a change of pace. It’s spring and time to freshen everything. This week’s question is
Do you ever feel like you have emerged better for reading a book? (submitted by Rubina@ Booklove)
I guess my answer depends on what better refers to? A better person, reader, thinker, writer than I was before? I’ve certainly had great satisfaction from reading a book, and I’ve been inspired by reading many. I’ve even been motivated by some to go back to my writing with more enthusiasm. What do you think about a book’s power to make you better at something than your were before reading it?
April and May have been busy months. Tick Tock A Stitch in Crime launched May 1, and my next book in the Adventures of Pete and Weasel, Some Very Messy Medieval Magic, will arrive May 15
Both books are getting some excellent press and one reviewer contacted me via Goodreads to ask if I thought Tick Tock was a good read. “Of course,” I said. So he’s buying the book. I feel so powerful.
It would help me and the other ten authors a lot if you’d stop in at a few bloggers who are reviewing or featuring Tick Tock and/or SVMMM (my next title is NOT going to be so freakin’ long). Here are eight who have posts up already. Comments, like reviews, help if only for ye olde morale.
- The Wood Between the Worlds
- The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow Meet the Author
- Bish Denham’s Random Thoughts
- Beverly McClure A Story of a Writer
- Melissa Maygrove
- Juneta Key Writer’s Gambit
- Mason Canyon Thoughts in Progress
- Lisa Haselton’s Reviews and Interviews
