Today’s post isn’t a review, but a roundup of a few miscellaneous items.
I hope you’ve noticed that we have added a couple more pals to the stable. Welcome SingleEyePhotos (who previously reviewed for Red Adept Reviews) and Pete Barber.
We’d still love to have more pals. If you think you’d be interested, send an email to BooksAndPals(at)Yahoo(dot)com and I’ll send you a long boring email telling you all about it. If you’re a fan of hardcore science fiction or the fantasy genre, we could especially use your help, but there are plenty of books of all genres aching for a review.
BigAl experiments to see how thin he can spread himself.
I’ve taken on two new projects in recent months that might be of interest to the Books and Pals audience. I’m hoping that spreading myself thin will make me taller and skinnier.
The first of these projects is taking over TheIndieView, a website founded by Simon Royle that I’ve plugged here several times in the past. Its aim is to provide a resource for readers of indie books, indie authors, and indie-friendly reviewers. Go poke around and, no matter which of these categories apply to you, there should be something of interest. For fans of our author interviews here, there are even more there, along with an occasional interview of a reviewer.
I’ll be contributing a post each month to this site. If you aren’t familiar with Indies Unlimited, they were one of the finalists in the 2012 Independent Book Blogger Awards, sponsored by Goodreads and the American Association of Publishers. Readers should find plenty to interest them, including “sneak peaks” at selected books, short stories, flash fiction contests where you can read the stories and vote for your favorite, and other fun stuff. Plenty of helpful content for authors as well, including writing and promotional hints, and more. My first post went up last week.
If you aren't familiar with either of these sites check them out and if you like what you see. follow them on twitter, like them on Facebook, and all that fun stuff.
