Welcome to the New Smorgasbord Bookshelf – 2022 where I will be sharing my own book reviews, author features and special events during the year such as book fairs.
It is my intention to still provide a platform for authors to share their books, but in 2022 the focus will be on my own reviews, features about authors on the bookshelf and regular events such the recent Christmas Book Fair series and the upcoming series in the New Year – Meet the Authors – Personal Recommendations
For the last seven years I have shared three posts a week with recent reviews, but this year I will just be promoting new releases in one off promotions.
You will notice that the new bookshelf has just my own personal recommendations for the authors and I will update with new reviews I write as we go through the year. Some authors are on my TBR and I will update with my reviews as I read them.
I hope to review more books in 2022 which is part of the reason for cutting back on my blogging. Reading is my first love and I am not doing enough of it. In addition I hope that by posting my review here on the blog and Goodreads, Bookbub etc, it will help support authors in a more constructive way.
Currently like most of you I have a TBR as long as both arms, and I try to read in the chronological order that I buy the books. Which is the key here, as I prefer to buy the books that I review, so that there is no pressure to read and review, and I can enjoy at my leisure.
There is an exception to this, and it is when an author I have previously read and reviewed asks if I might accept their book for an advance review. If I feel I can do so in a timely fashion then I am happy to do so.
It would be very helpful if you have a new book release coming up in the next couple of months if you could let me know when it is either on pre-order or available. I tend to work a couple of weeks ahead and advance notice is appreciated.
There is a set format to the new book promotion and because of scheduling ahead, I am sorry that I don’t participate in book launch tours.. but happy to post a new book promotion either side of a tour.
New Authors to Smorgasbord
I am very happy to post a one off promotion for a new book and if you have not been promoted by me in the past please email me on sally.cronin@moyhill with the Amazon link, Goodreads, Blog or Website and social media, I will come back to you for any other information I require and availability of a promotion date.
Following a new book promotion I do ask authors to individually respond to comments from readers and share on their social media.
The new series of Meet the Authors begins on January 10th and I hope you will drop in to check out my recommendations.
Thanks for dropping in today and Happy New Year…. Sally.
