I miss you guys. Bloggers, readers, people who built this blog and made it important to someone. It really is no secret that I love books and I love to read. I’ve done thousands of reviews. Some for books I loved and couldn’t wait to tell you about, some for books I warned you to avoid. But, seasons change and so do circumstances, and after careful consideration, I’ve made a decision.
I will no longer be accepting book review requests.
This is not to say that I don’t appreciate all the great books that have come my way over the years. I’ve made a lot of lasting friendships and forged a lot of literary bonds. I’ve also found some great books because you have sent them my way, but the truth of the matter is, I have no life.
I will still be reviewing occasionally, but only books of my own choosing. I’ve got a huge library of books I’ve bought, books on Netgalley and books that I’m not even sure where they came from and I’d like to get to those. I’m also following a bit of a different career path at the moment.
I intend to finish up the stack of reviews I’m working on now, so you will see reviews here for a while, likely in abundance as I’ve a lot of them I’ve agreed to review, but after those, it will only be occasional.
I am trying to return to wordpress by lightening the load. I miss you Pam, Charles, Susan, John, Chris–I miss having time to read your blogs and make comments. I guess you could say I remember what this whole blogging thing is about. People.
I will still be doing promo here and will do what I can to help authors achieve their goals and gain an audience for their hard work, but I won’t be accepting requests. This may only be for a while, this may be permanent.
I love you all for your support, inspiration and wonderful ideas that you’ve shared with me over the years. I also love my four boys and my incredible fiance. They deserve some face time as well, and I just can’t do that when I’m always busy reading and reviewing.
Thank you for understanding, and if you don’t–then let me send you a thousand or so review requests for my books and we can go grab a coffee when you finish answering your emails and reading my stuff. (Trust me when I say it takes a special kind of stupid to get through some of my books.)
I shall now go do a few reviews to make this post seem rather pointless. After I amend my submission guidelines.
