The Blogger Salute

the blogger saluteThat last great book you read…chances are you discovered it because someone took the time to read and review it. Chances are also good that the someone was a BOOK BLOGGER!  The truth is Indie Authors owe them a huge debt of gratitude, because without them even the best work might grow dusty on shelves and remain undiscovered.

Not only do these bloggers give us the benefit of their opinion, they also give us a forum for rebuttal – it’s called comments and you can almost always leave a comment on a blogger’s review – either agreeing or disagreeing.

Book Bloggers do this, and they do it for free. Yep, they are not paid for their reviews, not one cent. Oh, the author often sends a copy of the book for them to review, but shoot, that’s just common courtesy. I think it’s time we jump up and down, clap our hands and shout HOORAY FOR  BOOK BLOGGERS!

Today, I’d like to introduce you to a few of the Bloggers I’ve been fortunate enough to work with…and YES, I follow all of these blogs. I do so because through their reviews, I have discovered some new and wonderful books. Stop by and give each of them a visit, I promise they will make  you feel very WELCOME.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
