Your TBR Pile is Ridiculous!

TBR Pile.gif

Your TBR Pile is Ridiculous . . . and so is mine! Time to fix it. Here’s how?

JULY is HOT! Not just because the weather is a degree less than hell-fire but because it’s the month where lots of HOT books released! It’s also the month where I pair up with diverse (aka black/brown) bloggers / Instagrammers / Booktubers / and more to participate in some of the most popular READ-A-THONS around!

A FUN way to reduce the size of your TBR pile is to join other readers who are participating in one of several read-a-thons:

Bi-Annual Bibliothon - runs from 7/11 - 7/19

24 in 48 - runs from 7/20 -7/21

Reading Rush (formally Booktubathon) - runs from 7/22 - 7/28

You’ve still got time to get your book list together for this years events. If I am already on your TBR list . . . Fantastic! July would be a GREAT month to finally read my work. If not, add me. I’ll even sweeten the pot by gifting you a FREE book from my bookstore. Just use coupon code: READATHON for your FREE copy of Magnetic Pulse (The Hot Voltage Series) - Book #1.

Happy Summer and Happy Reading

Comfort Zone | Adventure

Why does summer always feel like a great time to be a little more adventurous? A time where one can take just a few more risks than usual? It was summer when I decided to write the Hot Voltage Series - an apocalyptic romantic thriller!

Loved every second of writing those books!!

Summer is quickly approaching and I’m determined to move out of my comfort zone as I gather more options for my reading list. I plan to continue to stretch my reading palate because I’ve found some great gems in the process.

What’s on your reading list this summer? What’s your favorite genre? Do you plan to take a few risks? A new author? A new topic? It’s all pretty exciting! Who said reading books is not an adventure. I think my new nickname should be Jack Cousteau!

Keep me posted & Happy Reading!!

ON-SITE BOOK CLUBS ARE MAKING A COMEBACK!

ON-SITE BOOK CLUBS ARE MAKING A COMEBACK!

How many of you are a part of a book club? One where you actually leave the house and interact with other people? Just curious since I'm doing some traveling this summer and it would be nice to visit a couple!

Sisterhood.jpg

It is so much easier to commune with readers online for so many different reasons, but I’ll tell you, since I’ve been a published author, I haven’t had an opportunity to be a part of many on-site book clubs! The laughter, the discussion, the WINE! Lordt…I miss sharing two of my favorite past-times with my friends - drinking wine and discussing books we enjoyed (or didn’t enjoy)! Apparently, on-site book clubs are making a comeback. I know I for one can’t wait to hit the road this summer to visit a few!!

I saw this list in another blog - Read It Forward and thought I’d share the 13 Reasons Why Book Clubs are Changing the World. Check it out!

1. Book clubs bring people of all backgrounds together to talk about great propellants of change: books.

2. They provide people with a sense of community and remind them that they are not alone.

3. Book clubs champion diverse thought and points of view. From the members in the club to the authors of the books, voices that are not always heard finally have a chance. Empathy is built and strengthened, which is no small feat.

4. Lifelong friendships are formed through bonding over the same book.

5. Wine and cheese platters are everything. Seriously.

6. When everything else seems unstable, you can rely on your regularly scheduled meetings to put your mind at ease.

7. They create a chance for conversation, which seems simple but really helps those who might not have an outlet for such things.

8. Reading and finishing a book that you picked with a special group feels intimate and even more rewarding.

9. You will learn things about each story from your book club that you may have not noticed on your own.

10. They provide an escape from reality.

11. You will read books that you may have not picked for yourself.

12. Regular reading becomes a must because you don’t want to miss a meeting or discussion.

13. Book clubs are uniting and not dividing, which is a huge deal today.

Are you a member of a book club? Let me know and maybe I’ll see YOU this summer!

HOW DOES IT WORK:  It's a tiered incentivized gift and prizes system. Host a book club party where readers purchase autographed print books of mine from you (you purchase them from the LV SHOP) and for every book sold...there is an incentive for you. The more you sell the bigger the incentive.

Readers do not have to be physically present for the book club but there must be at least 5 books sold in order to earn a prize.
Those prizes range from VISA gift cards to hard cold cash AND
possibly a visit from ME!
 
Marrying your love of reading with making a little extra income is the best of both worlds right?

This time of the year can get so busy that every now and again, you want to sit back, relax, and curl up with a good book (Fragments of us is available now- shameless plug) or movie.   If you're like me...
