  1. Congratulations to all participants - all winners! Especially chuffed that one of my reviews gained the author the prestigious Book of the Month!!!

  2. Well don’t everyone! Shared and tweeted

  3. What strikes me is all the work that has gone into these books and their jackets, plus the reviewing and blogging. Industry rewarded here, but the effort and enthusiasm behind it all should not be overlooked. Will tweet etc.


Thank you for leaving a comment - it should appear soon, but Blogger sometimes chucks its teddies out of the cot and has a tantrum. My apologies if you leave a comment and I do not respond - blame it on Blogger Bloopers. If you are having problems, contact me on author AT helenhollick DOT net and I will post it for you. Sometimes a post will appear as anonymous instead of your name or avatar - I draw attention to this being another Blogger Blooper and NOT of MY doing... That said ...SPAMMERS or distasteful rudeness will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam my blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that I DID warn you...
