Happy New Year! 2018

Hey everyone!

First, I would like to apologize for the lack of content, 2017 was one hell of a year. It wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t fantastic–it just was. A lot of stuff happened to us too. Jill got a new teaching job and got engaged. I studied at a lab in Jamaica for a month, graduated college, and lived the horrors of working retail during the holiday season. Not only that, but some of us have lost friends and family too. 2017 was a year of ups and downs, and I’m not even mentioning any of the politics that went with it, but it wasn’t the worst year in history either. Sorry, I’m getting a bit side tracked. I just wanted to apologize for the lack of promised content and give a brief explanation to the missing posts. I’m not promising that this year will be any better, because this site is for fun–it’s a hobby that we partake in when we have the time and mental facilities to do so.

With the new year, we would like to do more with this site if we can. We hope to be more regular with our posting schedule. So, as long as we have the time, there should be at least 2 posts a week if not more. Every Monday a manga review will be posted and every Wednesday a comic review will go up. Beyond that, we hope to get a book review out every week or two. We know that we still have many books that we haven’t gotten to yet, so we will focus on knocking those out first. We’re sorry for all the authors who have waited thus far and thank you for your patience.

As far as content goes, I personally hope to read at least one nonfiction book a month, personally I would like to read more scientific literature to broaden my understanding of the world. I also hope to better alternate between reading books from my laughably large TBR pile and requested books. It would also be great if we could get more author interviews or guest posts. So if you’re an author looking for some free publicity, then please by all means contact us via email and we’ll be happy to work with you!

Lastly, we hope that all our readers, and everyone else, are blessed this year with numerous fantastic opportunities. May 2018 bring you luck and prosperity, and maybe a little bit more cheer!

 

Thank you for sticking with us,

Jessica and Jill

Hello everyone!

Jill and I are happy to announce our first sponsored writing contest, Inkitt’s Novel Writing Contest!

How does the contest work?

socialAuthors can upload their books to Inkitt’s website for free. Yes, for free, no participant fee or anything! As soon as the novel is submitted the authors instantly gain access to a wide variety of readers. The novels that become the most popular among Inkitt’s readers will win the Novel Writing Contest. To enter the contest, authors must not have any works on Inkitt before. All novels must be more than 20k words and be written in English. No fanfiction or short-story collections allowed, but all genres are welcome! You have until the end of March to enter the contest, however, the sooner you submit the higher your chances are at winning.

What do authors win?

The winning authors receive an amazing deal with Inkitt, including a professional cover design and editing. Inkett will run a marketing campaign that will get authors onto Amazon’s Top 100 on the day of the book’s launch. They will also invest at least $6000 into the launch of the winning books and authors will receive 25% of the royalties.

If you’re interested in entering the contest or want to read up more on it, you can do so here!

The Midnight Glass Book Trailer

Along with the review request I was asked to upload a book trailer for The Midnight Glass.  Since I enjoyed reading the book I thought that I would help the author and small publishing house with advertising!

Book Trailer:

If you’ve been intrigued by my review  and the book trailer, please check out this book by D.T. Vaughn! I find that it’s very important to support self published authors or authors of small publishing houses because they don’t have the same resources as HarperCollins, Harlequin, etc. If you wish to support the author you can find his book on Amazon, where you can buy a paperback or an eBook.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day!
