Allison (The Allure of Books) (inconceivably) | 426 comments I'm using the fact that I'm a mod and Becky can't kick me off to start a promotion thread...mainly so I can promote myself. But we'll get to that in a sec...

Feel free to promote your website/blog/whatever in this thread (as in, don't start tons of new threads that flood the group) as long as you are an active member. The GR community is excellent at supporting their own, but we want you to be an active member of the group before we're supposed to care about what you're promoting :)


Allison (The Allure of Books) (inconceivably) | 426 comments I just started a new blog today, I'm excited about it! I can't wait to start networking with the multitude of book bloggers out there and start posting reviews and such. Anyway, feel free to check me out :)

Allison (The Allure of Books) (inconceivably) | 426 comments oh, and everyone knows the wonderful JG, correct? I will promote for her, while I'm at it.

Her blog can be found at:

JG (The Introverted Reader) | 96 comments Thanks, Allison! I haven't been very active since starting the blog. Not enough time in the day.

Becky (Beckyofthe19and9) | 3266 comments Being the follower that I am, I started a blog too... LOL It's EscapismThroughBooks.blogspot.com. Feel free to come take a look! :)


Holly P (hpelke02) | 183 comments I will have to check out all these blogs! Mine is http://www.bippityboppitybook.blogspo... and I am also a permanent reviewer for www.theroyalreviews.blogspot.com


Heikki (HeikkiHietala) Okay, I will be shameless and promote my book, Tulagi Hotel, here. This is the blurb:

"World War II has given Jack McGuire the chance to escape the confines of the Midwest and the family farm. An ace U.S. Marine fighter pilot, he risks his life each day with his squadron in the South Pacific theatre. For him, there’s calm and camaraderie up there in the cockpit. But when the war ends, Jack struggles to find his place in civilian society.

Turning his back on his home, family and inheritance, he returns to the Solomon Islands. Here he builds a hotel on the same island paradise he flew over in his years of combat, and settles down to a relaxed lifestyle in the sun.

But when Kay Wheeler, the widow of his wartime best friend and wingman, comes to visit the island, Jack’s orderly world is disrupted. He is forced to consider whether there’s room enough for two in his reinvented life."

And it has a website with all the relevant info, at http://www.tulagihotel.com

See you at the Pacific Paradise!

Jackie (TheNightOwl) | 2763 comments Hi Heikki,

In case you missed Allison's paragraph: Feel free to promote your website/blog/whatever in this thread (as in, don't start tons of new threads that flood the group) as long as you are an active member. The GR community is excellent at supporting their own, but we want you to be an active member of the group before we're supposed to care about what you're promoting :)

Your above post is your first post, so I'm sorry to inform you are not considered an active member. Active membership meaning posting relevant replies to people's comments in the various threads we have here. Consider this a warning before promoting your book again. Sorry if I come off as harsh, but you are the second author this morning that is not considered active who I saw promoting their book. You can't see his shameless plug/thread since I sent him to SPAM HELL deleted him. Please play nice with the other members by introducing yourself.


Thank you,
J


Jayme(the ghost reader) (JaymeILtheghostreader) | 3317 comments I like sent him to spam hell, you are funny Jackie.


Heikki (HeikkiHietala) I somehow knew I was stepping out of line here, but as soon as I come back from holidays, I'll first work up a presence and post that plug.

Sorry for any and all harm caused.

Heikki

Jackie (TheNightOwl) | 2763 comments Not sure if anyone here would be interested, but I'm hosting Smut-tember Fest for anyone who likes romance, erotica and just generally smutty reads...clean romance also qualifies. You can check out it out on my blog:
http://thecraftyreader.blogspot.com/2...


Also, Becky is hosting a Read-a-thon Challenge this weekend on her blog: http://escapismthroughbooks.blogspot.... . Basically, the challenge gives you an excuse to shove everything to the side (including your family) and read until your eyeballs give out. :-)


Joyce Moore | 77 comments Allison (or another mod): What if one of our blogs has a link to our book in it? Will that send us to the funeral pyre?

LOL No... We'll spare you in that case! :P

The Guillotine is only for those naughty spammers who don't otherwise participate here and want to just use the group for their own personal advertising service.

Jackie (TheNightOwl) | 2763 comments Awwww, booooo....I was going to throw flames at her :(

Totally kidding. Ditto on what Becky said.

southpaw285 I finally got my blog started....something I've wanted to do for awhile, but just been too chicken to try.

It is www.southpawseriesmadnessblog.blogspo...

I've got a crazy series challenge going on over there. It's quite rediculous really. I haven't figured out the Mr. Linky thing yet, but I'm working on it.

Pam Walter | 386 comments Trying to figure out how this thread continues.

It can't end here on Oct. 27, 2010


jennbunny Byrkit I have a blog...but I am in the process of updating it and making some changes....

Pam Walter | 386 comments You need to put a link here, Jennbunny, when you have it tip top!!

I was thinking it was my lack of computer savvy that couldn't make this thread work and it appeared to have stopped on Oct., 27. But it looks like that is exactly what happened!!

I want to say how very talented those of you are who have created your own blogs!!
Becky, Heather, Allison, Fiona, Jon, Laura, Rachel, Emilee and Jackie. http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/48...

Now I need a little time to read "THE BLOGS" HA


jennbunny Byrkit Thanks. When I'm done updating, I will post a link!


M. G. Scarsbrook (mgscarsbrook) | 16 comments Hi everyone,

I've really enjoyed being a member of this group so far! I think that some of you have already seen that I'm a writer or taken a look at my novel? If not, I thought this is the right place to tell you about it.

My novel is an historical thriller called The Marlowe Conspiracy. It's set in 1593 Elizabethan England and based around the dramatic life and mysterious death of Christopher Marlowe.

With his life on the line and the clock ticking, playwright/spy Christopher Marlowe teams-up with William Shakespeare to uncover a high-level government conspiracy.

It's published as both an eBook and paperback.

I also have a website, if you'd like to take a look:
http://www.mgscarsbrook.com

Historical novels set in the Tudor period with male central characters are not so common, so I thought you might be interested to hear about it...

Anyway, thanks for reading this!


Holly Weiss (HollyWeiss) | 377 comments I invite you all to join me in a Q & A to discuss Crestmont
Crestmont by Holly Weiss
The group is open to anyone and runs from Dec. 5 - 22.
Here is the link. Hope to see you there!

Kate Quinn | 626 comments I was really surprised and happy to find Mistress of Rome nominated in the Historical Fiction category for Goodreads Choice read of 2010. I'm also proud my friend Johanna Moran got nominated for her The Wives of Henry Oades. I'd love to win, but I'd be happy for her to get it as well - W of HO was great!

Voting for all categories here:

N. Slater | 24 comments Hi,

Would cheekily like to promote my own novel set in the early days of the Napoleonic Wars. An Agent of the King is only available as an eBook as yet.


message 46: by Jackie, That's Her Constableness to you! (new)

Jackie (TheNightOwl) | 2763 comments Congratulations Kate to you and Johanna for getting nominated. Best of luck to the both of you. :)


Holly P (hpelke02) | 183 comments I know this is a reading challenge loving group so I thought I'd mention that for 2011 I am hosting Chivalrous Deeds: A Historical Fiction Reading Challenge on my blog. You can check it out here if interested:
