Hey there!

Thanks for joining the group. I'm a born Jamaican and still living on the island.

Where are you from? You don't have to be from the Caribbean. All are welcome! Oh, if you have a blog you'd like to share please do so.

S. Rivera (sjacksonrivera) | 1 comments Hi. Not from the Caribbean, but I love to visit as often as possible. I love to scuba dive, hike the jungles, sit on the beach and write . . . you get the picture.

If I have a minute to sit down and enjoy a good fantasy, I prefer to use that time to write. Jungle: The Whispering Ruins is currently available on Amazon and I am, hopefully, getting close to having a romance story finished which takes place on an island in the Caribbean. So happy to find this group.

Shannon I reside in Maryland and am really putting forth an effort to read a more diverse selection of books. I look forward to seeing the recommendations and discussions that appear here. I do have a blog and there you'll find a review of the recently released novel 'Til the Well Runs Dry. It is set in Trinidad and is a whirlwind of a read! http://www.ReadingHasPurpose.com

O.a. Kennedy | 1 comments Barbados! No blog yet! But I just launched my first book "The Soltreian Chronicles". It follows a young Barbadian who survives the apocalypse to realize that not only is he alive, but he is now immortal. It has lots or Caribbean flavor. lol

Jennifer Grahame | 2 comments In my haste and excitement to find a Caribbean group I quickly joined without looking at dates. Checking back to see if there was any response to my post I noticed the last post made in this group was in 2014. Is there another Caribbean group more up to date and alive?

Amanda Jones (amanda_gabrielle_jones) | 3 comments Lol. I guess there might be. I don’t know that Goodreads is a great spot for bloggers though? On the flipside some people do such great and detailed reviews that people follow them in much the same way as if they were blogging. I might be wrong though. What made you choose Goodreads in connection with blogging? I might be missing something. I haven’t blogged anywhere with regularity for years .... but I recently got added to a Facebook group of Caribbean bloggers anyway. Maybe I could try to get the name of it and share it with you? It seems like an active group.

Amanda Jones (amanda_gabrielle_jones) | 3 comments Ok I’m reading again .... you put short stories on your blog ... interesting idea .... Could be a way to reach readers .... but keep communicating within the writing community and you’ll eventually find the right people who can advise and connect you better, so you can find the right media to grow your readership! Good luck!

Amanda Jones (amanda_gabrielle_jones) | 3 comments Oh Jeez. I’m very bad too. In my haste to reply to you I missed the fact that the original post invited members to share their blogs. 😂😂😂 you know what, I better go have breakfast!
