Willeke Van Eeckhoutte (willekegmailcom) | 5 comments Mad about books, libraries (used to work in one after studying library sciences!), bookshops, museums... call me a geek if you want and I won't hold it against ya! :)

Started blogging last month, not sure yet of the direction it will take me but am loving it so far! Not to forget trying out all the designs for the webpages! :D)

Gerald Griffin (authorgeraldggriffin) | 161 comments Willeke, you asked to be added as a friend on Facebook, but FB is nortorious for getting in a huff when you ask to add as a friend someone you don't know personally --- which includes almost everyone on Facebook. I've sent you a friend request on Goodreads. They're more realistic about this.

Like you, I've just started blogging, and would appreciate, if you have time, you visiting my blog (posts still in the making, but the blog still interesting) at:

Elle, I went to your site and read your article on how to promote your book on Goodreads! Enjoyed it thoroughly! Thank you! I'm an indie author, have no advertising for my book, and I rely on Goodreads members to buy it based upon whatever goodwill I can build up with them. In this regard your comments were quite helpful and I'll do my best to adhere to them in the groups I belong to. Since my novel is not advertised, and my own self-promotion is the only means of spreading word about it, let me just say that my book has received fabulous reviews, and these reviews are posted on

Gerald Griffin (authorgeraldggriffin) | 161 comments Jen, I've already delightfully met you (and responded) in the Polzer discussion of German translation of novels into the eBook format between Greg, Eric and me.

Now, as for picking your brains --- sounds like a Frankenstein experiment, please visit my lab at and let me know of what you think of my current suspense thriller OF GOOD AND EVIL and any brief impression of marketing and promotional plans for the novel from this point forward. Tea will be served by Egor, my faithful assistant. His favorite comment: "Ve have vays of making you talk," always followed by a fiendish laugh!

Miranda Tirri (mirandatirri) | 1 comments Hello all avid romance lovers! :)

Today you have still time to get my Romantic Comedy/New Adult ebook “Gone with the feelings” for FREE!

Happy reading! :)

Gone With the Feelings by Miranda Tirri
Gone With the Feelings


“Janina is a quick-tempered young woman, and an extremely emotional and romantic person who has tendency to build castles in the air. She never runs out of words, and certainly makes her opinion to be heard as well as seen.
Janina has been running the whole year from bar to bar after the mister right one, however without any success so far. Finally she has had enough of searching for a suitable husband candidate. She decides to take up some totally other entertainment, so she joins Scouts. In the middle of nature with children she would not need to give men a second thought!
This is what Janina decides, but how long can she keep her decision when the broad-shouldered and energetic Troop Leader steps in the picture. He is so funny, witty, self-confident, handsome…, but also so annoying!
When furthermore another man comes to mess up her train of thought, there is no day without feelings surging up. And as Janina happens to be of that type whose feet do not keep on the firm ground the order of the pack of cards is a great mystery even to herself.”

A.C. Efverman (acefverman) | 3 comments I'm a Swedish author - and I moved to the sunny shores of Australia nineteen years ago; as I never could stand the long, cold and dark winters in my home country.

But I still have Scandi Noir flowing through my veins and I write dark crime fiction novels set in my adopted home town Sydney.

My book series 'DS Morgan Callaghan' is available world wide in both English and Swedish:

Game (DS Morgan Callaghan Crime Fiction, #1) by A.C. Efverman Skuggspel En Thriller som Utspelas I Sydney, Australien by A.C. Efverman Borta (Kommissarie Callaghan, #2) by A.C. Efverman

You can view a description of the content - and reviews - here: Game

Skuggspel was # 1 Best Seller in Swedish Language Fiction on in november 2015 - and was also # 1 Best Seller in Swedish eBooks on in March 2016.
Borta was # 7 Best Seller in Swedish eBooks on in March 2016.

For bloggers interested in blogging/reviewing my work - please send me a personal message here on Goodreads. I spread all blogs and reviews about my books extensively on my social media network - which is full of influential people in the publishing industry and the media - and also on Twitter.

Duncan Reyneke (duncanjreyneke) | 3 comments I'm a science fiction author, from South Africa, with a novel up on Amazon and a blog I'm quite proud of.

I'd like to introduce Nails in the Sky, my debut novel.

Alex van der Haar is having bad dreams. Strange messages from people he's not even sure are real. Weird show downs in a floating ether outside of his favourite class. And that's just what's going on inside his own head after he goes to sleep.

There's also the strange fact that people he knows are going missing, and nobody remembers they ever existed. Friends. Family. All gone, and he's the only person who knows they were ever there at all.

What's really going on in his sleepy little student community? Who is the mysterious nihilist, Charles Daedalus, who's making his agitated worldview everyone else's problem? And how will Alex protect the ones who matter most to him from whatever is making everyone else disappear?

Get lost, with Nails in the Sky, today.

And once you're done with that, why not visit my blog, Duncan, Incidentally and read my new guide to writing a best-selling novel?

I mean, I still haven't written one, but a guy can dream, right?

Charles Blanchard | 2 comments MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW for KINGDOM'S END!!

I just wanted to say hello and to share the rave review from MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW for KINGDOM'S END. I have pasted the link to the review below the copied review here. Enjoy. Charles.
Critique: An extraordinary, unique, and exceptional novel, "Kingdom's End" clearly establishes author Charles D. Blanchard has having a genuine knack for truly impressive storytelling, who makes his deftly crafted animal characters spring to life in the course of a consistently compelling tale. One of those rare and treasured novels that will linger in the mind and memory long after the book has been finished and set back upon the shelf, "Kingdom's End" is unreservedly recommended for community library General Fiction collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that "Kingdom's End" is also available in a paperback edition (9781483449364, $16.99) and in a Kindle format ($7.55).

The Damsel in the Library | 132 comments Hello fellow readers!

Almost a year ago I joined Reedsy as a reviewer. They promote indie and self-published books, offering all sorts of resources and putting books in front of early reviewers. I enjoy seeing all the new books and selecting my next read. I think it’s great that a place exists to assist self-published authors. Who knows, maybe my book will make an appearance one day.

As a reviewer you would have a wide variety of genres to peruse and you can pick whatever book looks good and start reading it. It’s sorta like Netgalley and other ARC providers, but you’d be helping smaller authors succeed.

If you think this opportunity sounds interesting, follow the link below to submit your reviewer application:

Phil | 7 comments Making blog posts about my fiction series, and providing advice for other fiction authors.

Widowing is a fatal disease, targeting and killing one person in every impacted couple. No treatments exist, or a solution, or survivors. Some think if Widowing targets one gender…intentionally.

Porma needs to move in with someone. Iteni, his high school crush, allows him to move in with her. He’s stoked to get to be with her. So what if no one know how to spot Widowing? Porma can possibly get with Iteni! He has multiple odd jobs to do too, as he seeks romance and adventure at his new Maine home.

Iteni’s been biting herself though. In the bathroom, leaving teeth marks on her skin. She wants to talk about her hand marks, and get help.
