In recent months, I have been honored and blessed by so many people within the book review blogging community.
To the visitors to my blog that return or take the time from their busy lives to leave a comment. You matter to me. I simply want you to know that.
To the authors of the many genre of novels that I review – thank you for letting me into your creation just a bit before the rest of the world gets entrance. When I receive permission to read a book through an e-ARC, it is a gift that I try not to take advantage of. I try my best to honor that privilege and respect your work. I don’t absolutely love beyond reason every single novel I review, but if I reviewed it then I at least found something within its pages that captured me.
To the publishing houses that trusted that I would deliver on my promise of an honest and prompt review of their authors’ works. I appreciate your trust in me – and even when my schedule gets crazy and I end up a day or two beyond the release date of a novel, I’m hoping that you understand that I am taking the time to read these works in order to hold up my end of the bargain. That doesn’t happen often, but then.. life happens and schedules have to be adjusted.
I have discovered so many A-M-A-Z-I-N-G worlds through the novels I have reviewed. I’ve branched out into areas that I might not have if I didn’t have this blog and the ability to learn about so many interesting novels available. For that I have to thank the creators and hosts of the various weekly memes that give all of us a glimpse into other worlds.
To some people this post may seem silly, a fluff filler piece or totally unnecessary. But it’s not. The people, the very many varied people within the expanding walls of book review blogs matter to me on many levels and I believe in giving back to those that give to me.
When things get hectic or difficult I simply want you to know that you matter in this entire puzzle. And I appreciate the part you have allowed me to play in your lives.
