Today is one year since I wrote my first book review! Since that first review was written I’ve separated the book blogging out onto it’s own blog, away from my personal blog to give it it’s own platform which is really successful and makes the books stand out far more. I’ve also honed my reviewing skills and become far more confident.
I was used to critiquing music and switching my skills to books took a bit of practice, it is one thing to know how to write, studied grammar and writing styles, to have written and read professionally, and to have read constantly your entire life, and to start critiquing people’s work and I spent a long time writing my own guidelines for what I needed to look for structurally and editorially, as well as what would need to stand out for me on a personal level in terms of what I like.
As with the critiquing I did with the music work I did over the ten years I did that I want to keep my integrity intact so I think having those guidelines was important and to build relationships was really important and I think over the past year I have done that and will continue to do so. I have really enjoyed reading so many diverse and different books, so many I wouldn’t normally have found out about or read.
Today I’m going to launch a number of Giveaways, keep an eye out as there are some great prizes on offer, some I’ve been able to put together myself, some are from some great people who have offered them up and to those people, thank you so much, I am extremely grateful!
Due to postage costs, only this giveaway is international, I’m super sorry, but I just can’t afford the overseas postage for the other prizes.
All of the Giveaways are open until Wednesday 20 April and are being managed through Rafflecopter for fairness!
To kick us off…I’m giving away an Amazon Gift Voucher to the value of £10/$15 … Head to Rafflecopter to take enter.
