Anne - this new site is fabulous! I love the idea and was wowed when I first saw the site. Great design - the colors and layout are attractive and draw you in. I like how your reviews are written and plan on using this site to check out book ideas for my children. Ok, I'm gushing, but your intro post was very clever, too. I think you've got a winner.

A neighbor of my parents (in Virginia) has asked my daughter to review a couple of children's books with which she has been associated. I don't know if she's looking for grownups to review the books. Contact me if you want more information.


lapdwife: Thanks, blush blush. I don't know if I can sustain it if I go back to work, but we'll see.

OE: Thanks. Will email you later.

Great idea!!! It looks wonderful and I will recommend it to others with kids as well.

Excellent!! I have a few publishers I review for as well - you're on the right track. Keep it up. I'm going to add you to my list, and hope to send some leads your way.

(I blogexploded my way in here, and boy am I glad. Your site actually brought a smile to my face.)

Anne-Marie: Thanks, I appreciate the word-of-mouth (or word-of-blog) boost.

Zee: That's good to know. Welcome to my blog. Blogexplosion's really paying off for me. How very cool. Thanks.

What a fabulous idea for a blog! I am always seeking new books for my two-year-old son. After the 50th reading of The Little Engine That Could in the past 5 days, I could use some fresh ideas. My son may take some convincing, though.

I am enjoying this blog as well. Glad to have both of them!

Hi Suzanne, thanks so much. My fear is that one or both blogs will suffer from neglect as I get busier. It's great to know that I am steadily getting readers -- it really helps the ol' morale. Thanks again.

about me

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
