#BookBlogWriMo Day 15 and 16!!

So, I was out of pocket all day yesterday, thus you have a two-in-one post!!

My Favorite Book Blogging Things

  • Getting to read – Well, I’d hope this was one of my favorite things about this process, otherwise doing it would be silly!!
  • Meeting new people – I’ve met so many great authors and bloggers through this process. Having the chance to become an editor for one of those authors was even greater and that wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t have this blog. They’re something great about being a part of this community; we all understand the addiction.
  • Discovering new favorite authors and books – Oh my. My Kindle has SO many great books on it. I’m always finding new great books on BookHub and through book tours and recommendations.
  • Free books – Ah, does this really need explanation? This is a wonderful perk.
  • The opportunity to do what I love – I went to school for English and Journalism, so I’m happy to be able to put that to good use. I enjoy doing this. It’s fun, productive, and educational.
  • Having the chance to read books before release – Another great perk! It’s what I’d imagine going to a movie premier would be like – just without the celebrities and photo ops!

My Least Favorite Book Blogging Things

  • It can get expensive – Oh yes. Once you get hooked on an author or book series, stopping the chain of purchase is very difficult.
  • Over booking – This is so easy when there are so many great opportunities to review so many great books. I’ve recently taken a look at my methods and cut back a bit so I can get my ducks in a row.
  • Not having enough time to read everything – The plight of all major book worms.

30 Days of Thanks – Day 15 and 16

I am thankful for great friends. It’s always wonderful to look forward to fun get togethers with friends [and family.] Friends are the family we get to choose for ourselves.

I am thankful for public transportation. Sure, driving is great – but public transit allows for decompression time!

My Life, Fun Things, and “All That Remains” by Michele G. Miller

I have been a little busy over the last few months. Let’s see… what was I doing?
  • Working my HR job
  • Applying to grad school (Got in!)
  • Reading a whole heck of a lot
  • Spending time with family and friends
  • Helping friends prep for weddings and various other parties/life events
  • Had a week-long stay-cation with the husband
  • Had a sleepover party with the nieces (4y and 9y!)

And there was something else… Let’s see… what was it?

All That Remains Cover

Oh ya, I was editing Michele G. Miller’s final installment in the From The Wreckage series – All That Remains. I can’t begin to tell you how absolutely incredible this series is, all bias aside. But jeesh, let me tell you something – it’s so cool to see my name up there next to “Editor” on Amazon. Besides that, it was pretty amazing utilizing my degrees, having first looks at such a wonderful book, and getting to know Michele G. Miller even better. (She’s pretty awesome. If you haven’t checked her out – Go check her out on Facebook!)

This series has brought me through a roller coaster of emotion and I’m quite a fan of Michele writing in this genre. She has the ability to grab you with the use of well-developed and relatable characters, the right amount of description, sensory-driven imagery, and realistic dialogue. I can’t wait to have it on my book shelf. 🙂
 
I can’t wait to see what happens next for these characters, even if it’s just in cameo appearances in spin-offs or whatever comes our way. I’m pretty thrilled I got another book boyfriend out of the deal (those Rutledge brothers are pretty.. uh.. they have great personalities. Ya know? 😛 )
 
This was a really fun journey to be a part of and I can’t wait to see what’s next… in the interim, pick up this book series. Book 1 is FREE!! And for more information about my editing services, please find a link at the top of my blog.
