Denise Baer has gone through life in ecstasy (not the drug). At times, she couldn’t quite remember where she was or how she got there. But that’s a story for when she gets to know you. For now, she’d like to concentrate on her successes…, which aren’t too many. She’s not an award-winning author, never starred in a porn, or entered a beauty contest.

She’s just a regular gal who likes potato chips on her sandwiches and says ‘member’ instead of remember. You can take the girl out of Chicago but you can’t take Chicago out of the girl. If flip-flops were the only form of footwear, she’d go without because she’s not crazy about feet thongs.

Hello Gracie, Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you liked my review of All the Light We Cannot See.

I'm sorry but I don't do reviews upon request. If I read a book and want to share how I felt about it, I'll write a review and post it on my blog and sometimes Amazon and Goodreads.

What I do offer are author interviews on my blog. If you'd like to check out past interviews, you can browse "Author Interviews" on the sidebar - http://baerbookspress.com/blog/ . The interviews are not your normal questions. The next opening isn't until June.

I can also feature your book on the sidebar of my blog.

I hope you find my offers helpful. Let me know by sending a private message.

Have a great day!
Denise

P.S. I did check out your book and the cover and description sound great.

It’s been a while since I’ve lost myself in a book, ingested the writing style, and finished with the proud feeling of ‘this is what writing is all about’. Over the summer, I read three books that I fell in love with for the writing styles, the stories, and characters. Fiction writing isn’t as easy […]

Lorelei Orion Hi, Denise. I'm at your profile and saw your comment. Thanks! I don't understand this reply stuff, either. Because, if I reply to you, shouldn't it go to you? I'm still trying to figure it out, too!

Take care

Hi Christine,

What a wonderful thing you do to help handicapped children and make bracelets. Do you sell the bracelets, too?

I'm glad you loved my book and I wish you well. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

Denise Baer I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying the book. You touched my heart that you appreciated the sign bookmark. It was so nice of you to say.

What I do for fun is read and I enjoy doing creative things like creating the bookmark I sent you. I also love traveling and seeing different cultures.

Have a great day.
