Mommasaysread | 31 comments Hey There It's Momma!
I'd love for authors to come to my site and check it out! You can have your book reviewed, listed in bargain books, free days, free books all for free. There will never be a charge for reviews or bargain/free listings or blog stops. so come and submit your book here:

Also, I'm running a monthly series for authors to post guest posts. If you are interested in participating in a guest post here are the topics:
March - "Why I Write"
April - "Which of your Characters do You Feel Closest
For details go here:

And finally, the site is currently in it's soft launch period. we are making sure everything works and we have our system down for when the readers officially start coming to the site. (although check out our stats already - wow!).

For our big launch we are going to do a MASSIVE giveaway via rafflecopter that will post your books on twitter, Facebook, pinterest and allow folks to invite others to the contest. If you would like to donate digital, hard copy books or something else to promote your book please go here and let us know:

I just filled out a form on your website to have my historical romance, Threads of Betrayal reviewed. So, how do I get a copy to you? Do I gift an ebook? Since I'm technically challenged, please advise! Thanks!

message 17: by Dean (new)

Dean MacAllister (deanmacallister) Hey momma....what if you don't have an ebook on amazon or smashwords. I'm on most other sites.

message 18: by Abha (new)

Abha C. (abhac) | 40 comments I'd love to be involved as well. Would you PM me the details?

message 19: by Karen (new)

Karen A. Wyle (kawyle) | 250 comments Submitted the form re Wander Home. Thanks!!

message 20: by Mommasaysread (new)

Mommasaysread | 31 comments Dean, you can choose to give whatever you would like. I'm assuming authors who are giving away ebooks will likely send the epub/mobi directly to the winners once I provide the information. So all I really need is the title, what format and how many. I even have one author thinking about giving away a kindle!

message 21: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Newton (elizabethnewton) | 59 comments Momma,
I have visited the site and submitted a form for my book (for review and for general promotion) as well as written a response to the question "Why I Write". I hope I've done it right...

Abinas Jagernauth (Abinas_Jagernauth) | 3 comments Hi Momma, Thanks very much for doing this. We authors need all the help we can get to promote our work. I submitted my book a few minutes ago. I also signed up for the readers' and authors' newsletters. Once again, thanks!

message 24: by Mommasaysread (new)

Mommasaysread | 31 comments Abinas,
No problem! Momma loves the indies and I know how hard it is to break in. It's all about folks finding those hidden gems!

I'll be processing requests tonight after work so you should be hearing from me.

message 25: by Mommasaysread (new)

message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Will your site have books for sale?

message 31: by Mommasaysread (new)

Mommasaysread | 31 comments we will not be selling books directly on the site. We are Amazon & Smashwords affiliates and have the affiliate links to books on the website.

message 32: by Lance (new)

Lance Charnes (lcharnes) | 326 comments I filled out the form a week ago and haven't heard back. Am I now sitting in the corner of the kitchen facing the wall?

message 33: by Mommasaysread (new)

Mommasaysread | 31 comments Lance, no I didn't put you in the corner:) I started MommaSaysRead as a labor of love. I didn't start it as a way to make money (although I am hoping one day to recoup the costs of running the site, but never intended to make money), only to help out authors because I know how hard it is. I work a full time job and have 5 kids so I don't always get to requests right away. I had to get a CRM to start keeping track of everything and have finally gotten everyone entered in. It's my hope that during lunch and after work today I'll be able to contact everyone that I have not yet had a chance to contact. Thank you so much for your patience.

Karen A. Wyle (kawyle) | 250 comments (re message 33) I'm glad to know Smashwords has an affiliate program! Could you by any chance share how bloggers can become part of it?

message 42: by Jo (new)

Jo Hogarth | 22 comments Hey there, what a great idea you have. I listed my name on your form on your site. Thanks for being so passionate about books.

message 43: by Mommasaysread (new)

Mommasaysread | 31 comments No problem Jo! There are too many good authors/books out there to get buried under the waves of just a few!

Ubiquitous Bubba (ubiquitousbubba) | 21 comments Hey there, Momma!
