Book Reviews - My Clever Title

Happy Saturday! Let me start off saying I admire those who can come up with catchy titles to snare you right off the bat and have your sticking around their site for a bit. However, as you can see by my title here, I am sorely lacking in that skill. Forgive me.

Ok, I discovered a writer didn't know about. I'm sure millions have heard of her. Since I'm still green behind the ears and wet around the gills (haha I did that on purpose), I didn't know Tara existed.

But the point is, Tara does reviews. And she says many others are starting review blogs also. So I'm wondering why would be authors do it? Ok, the obvious reason is to get to read more books, but how does it help one's own career other than make other authors think you're the most special person on the plant, which I now feel about Tara. (Ok, I really hope she likes my books.)

If you have the foggiest notion of why an author would do it other than the obvious or you are an author reviewer with your own review site, please comment and let me know. I'm terribly curious.

Oh yes, Tara's review site is here: Tara M. Leigh Reviews

    Hi AJ

    Hehehe, see different authors circles!

    The reason I'm doing a review site? I belonged to TwoLips, and while I review for them from time to time, I wasn't able to focus on my writing.

    I figured if I started my own review blog, I can determine how much I can take on and etc...also, I want to get my name out there!!

    I, too, am fairly new at this. Not writing, but networking!

    With Love,
    Tara M.

    I've done some reviews for Romance Divas, and it does take a long time. But you have to be careful, maybe do it under an alias, because if you publish under the same name and have given someone a bad review... well it can make you a target :)

    Yikes, thanks for the warning Shelli. I didn't think of that. Makes good sense.
