Call out to Writer Friends!

03 Aug

Reading and writing are my passions and occasionally, I have the honor of previewing a book before it is published.  When the manuscript is passed onto my hands (or laptop screen), I treat it gently because it is akin to a newborn.  It is the product of hard labor and sleepless nights and the author entrusts me to give an honest opinion about their “baby”.  I usually edit, to the best of my ability, and leave the good, the bad and the ugly in little notes along the side of the page.    However, this time, I was asked to be part of a Book Tour and publish my review online.

This is new for me as a blogger since I’m usually writing about traveling or teaching or life in general.  However,  I enjoyed writing the review and think it would be a nice addition to my blog.

My book review of Beneath the Slashings, by Michelle Isenhoff is part of her Blog Book Tour and will be published on August 14th.

Who knows — perhaps I’ll join the book review bandwagon! If that’s something you’re interested in, post here and let me know!

    That’s wonderful! You can start a new blog exclusively for book reviews. You can call it Maggie’s Views…

        Thanks -I’m glad you liked it! You certainly helped me a great deal with your excellent editing skills, and saving me from the disappointment of going over it many more times, and still finding interminable mistakes. I’m still editing some things out. It’s a tedious task, but I think it will be more readable when I’m done. I will def let you know.

    I think it is nice to read book reviews. It can be a great feature on a blog.

    Thank you so much, Maggie, for your critique. I always value your opinion, and you found two typos that slipped past everyone else. Can’t wait to read your review!
