  1. Hey Alexandra,

    One of the other authors I follow has started a new way to try and get authors connected with each other, and the idea is to post a blog with 5 links to other author blogs, including the one who introduced you to it. I just wanted to let you know that yours is one of the blogs I’m linking to.

    Thanks, Rob

  2. Hi, I have a fantasy novel out in November called Firebolt. I would love if you can do an author interview. That is if you would like, in January. I’m setting up my own virtual tour, and I would like to add your blog as one of my stops where you can do any kind of post on me, or my novel. I like the sound of your interviews. It’s really awesome to see what readers like in stories and it gives me another perspective seeing it from their eyes.

    Thanks so much for doing this, and good luck with that award.
    If you like to participate, you can find me at or Yes, I’m a fellow book lover blogger.

    Take care,


  3. Hello, good to see an active connection of authors helping each other out. I was curious if you might point me in the right direction to find a reviewer to tackle a short story i’ve published on amazon kindle. I should have done an advanced reader request before publishing, but i’m new to this crazy world of self-publishing. Anyways, any direction would help.

    1. Goodreads has various read and review groups. They do often expect a free copy for review and they will tell you what is what but that might be a good place to start. What genre is it? If it is fantasy I can point you at some friendly facebook groups. Reviews can be tricky to get, and aren’t always favourable, of course but plenty of books sell without many. You could check your local area for readers’ or writers’ groups.
      I’d say Goodreads is a must, although do make sure you check the individual group rules on promotion.
      Hope this helps.
