Now here's a word from Jessica:
When I started networking on twitter and facebook in early 2010, I thought I should have a website to keep people interested in my own writing. Since I don’t have anything published yet, I felt uncomfortable giving people writing advice. Instead, I thought I’d review books that I’ve enjoyed and interview authors who have written books that interest me. Since then, many authors have contacted me and asked if I would review their books. I've read so many fabulous books - many independently published - that I would not have read otherwise.Thanks so much for stopping by, Jessica. I wish you many, many blogoversaries to come. :-)
For me, my blog is a way to share my love of reading and writing. It keeps me from getting bored.
Now that I have had my blog up and running - with only a couple minor problems - for a year, I thought I'd invite several authors, book bloggers and songwriters I've met over the past year to help me celebrate. I received an overwhelming response with many participants offering fabulous prizes, including the lovely Cheryl Kaye Tardif.
