The big "secret" project I've been telling you about just went public!
We (Paula, Peggy, Linda, and I) have relaunched the Story Circle Book Review site, with a fresh new look and lots of new features. This is a site that Peggy and I put together for Story Circle five or six years ago. Paula took it over and expanded it to over 400 reviews, making it the largest women's book review site on the Internet. Now, we're expanding even further, with added categories for women's non-fiction and fiction (including mysteries, historical and mainstream novels, and Christian fiction), a new look, and lots of new features--and more on the way!
To handle this expansion, we're looking for reviewers to supplement our existing team of 20-plus reviewers. Reviewers may receive free advance reading copies and new books--and of course writing reviews is a great way to add to your portfolio of publications. We're featuring our most active reviewers by giving each one a webpage of her own, and will soon be launching an eletter with more opportunities to showcase our reviewers. Interested? You'll find all the info here. If you've just read a book that you've enjoyed and want to share, we'd like to read your review.
Also, stay tuned here for another big announcement, coming up in a few days--something I've been plotting for a couple of months is about to happen, finally!
Best intentions. I'm knitting the second sock in a mystery pair. You know about this, right? You knit the first sock in a pattern you were wild about at the time, but you fail to note the name/location of the pattern, and you can't find it when you start the second sock. I'm doing my best to duplicate it, but I'm afraid that this pair will end up on my personal feet (rather than those of the planned recipient), because the patterns don't quite match. When will I learn to not only keep the needles with the yarn and Sock #1, but also leave a trail of breadcrumbs to the PATTERN!! Oh, hiss, boo, and grrrr....
Reading note. If it is true, and I really believe that it is, that knitting is a soothing force in the world and that the liberal application of yarn can ease any day, then today would be a time when I tested it.
