It doesn't have to be so complicated

Oh boy, I've never done anything like this so I don't really know how to start.
I just finished a really, really good book and it made me think:
There are people out there, that really are reading my blog even if I don't see it. They are looking for advice on good books and I could help them but sometimes I'm to lazy to write my reviews, or have so much to do that the words are stuck in my head and never find their way out. I like reading books, a lot! So I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on some of them but I never really thought that it would take so much time.
I'm not complaining or anything because I really like doing it!
Since I'm here with you all in the blogosphere I experienced a lot of good things and I don't want to miss that.
I'm just asking you to be patient with me and there will be a lot more coming!
This could be more!
Encouraging people to read a book, tell them about your favourite one or just talk about the lives in all the books is amazing.
Let's do that together, shall we?

Now, there's a big pile of books I have to write a review to!
Stay with me and spread the word.

  1. Dear Lola,

    I'm an author with a new collection of YA short stories, Ugly To Start With (West Virginia University Press).

    Will you please consider reviewing it?

    I've been writing and publishing for twenty years--more than one hundred stories and two novels--and Ugly To Start With is my best work.

    My first novel, The Night I Freed John Brown (Penguin), won The Paterson Prize for Fiction and was recommended by USA Today.

    My short stories have appeared in more than seventy-five literary journals, including North American Review, The Kenyon Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, and The Chattahoochee Review. Twice I have been nominated for The Pushcart Prize. "The Scratchboard Project" received an honorable mention in The Best American Short Stories 2007.

    If you write me back at, I’ll send you a PDF of my collection for your consideration.

    At this point, my small publisher is out of available review copies, so I hope and politely ask that you consider the PDF.

    I would be very grateful.

    Thank you so much.

    John Michael Cummings
