I have a new blog. Don't ask me why. It's not like I have time. And, like, I have the flu, fer cryin' out loud. I never seem to give myself a break, but then, I have only myself to blame.
It seemed like a good idea and my husband and writing coach jumped all over it. It's called Book Buds Kidlit Reviews, and as the name implies, it's dedicated to reviewing children's books. New titles only, by the way.
For now, I'm critiquing the review copies that come to me from the newspaper where my hubby works. He has to snag them from the book review editors who all have kids too. I'm just trying to get started, so whatever I can get will have to do for now.
If I see some traffic on the site, I'm going to try to pursuade a few publishers to send copies to me directly. If things get busier, I'll be soliciting more reviewers from the LA area (especially for Christmas books) and/or maybe some advertising, PayPal, that sort of thing.
Let me know what you think. It's still a work in progress, so suggestions here or on the Book Buds site are welcome.
