Book Squawking


What's Jack up to? Jack had a calm and, I think for a dog, pleasant weekend this weekend. Knowing Jack he thought it was a bore. The weather was nice, so decent walks and the nights were cool, so good sleep. That plus food and treats what more could he want? With Jack-trouble.


Today I'm happy to introduce you to a new blog called Booksquawk. It's a writer's book review blog and I'm honored to be one of the contributors. The tagline for the blog is: really good book reviews by professional writers.

Now that for me is humbling. Really good? Hmm... I'm not so sure. Now I'm new to this review game, but, um, let's just see how it goes. Shall we?
And as for the professional writer part... I don't think I've been a professional since my fashionista days and I sometimes had to wear heels and even then it was kinda loosey goosey. But hey, I am writing and I do want it to be my profession so, well, I guess that counts. Hey, they called me. I don't know who did their background checks.

Either way the cool thing about Booksquawk is that all different genres will be represented since the contributing writers have such varied tastes (yeah, expect some romance from me, yay!).
So there is lots to look forward to and you may find a new favorite author.

Please stop by Booksquawk here and stop by often because new reviews are popping up all the time. Heck, if you're feeling fancy become a follower and get a big cyber type smooch from me! Thanks.

Oh and scroll down on Booksquawk to read my review of ACCORDING TO JANE by Marilyn Brant. Thanks again!


Best,
Kwana

Awesome I can't wait to read some reviews always on the hunt for a good book recommendation.

How cool! What's the first book you're reviewing on there?

Kwana, I was so honored you chose my book to review for the new Booksquawk blog--thank you!!--and have already begun quoting parts of it around the blogosphere... IMO (and, fine, I'm kinda biased :), that was a "really good review." As for the "professional writer" part--I believe we have to take on the job as professionals in our mind and in our behavior long before we're ever paid a cent for it--so, yes, you are.

Congrats on your new role. I love the name "Book Squawking". I will be in need of a good book for a roadtrip 2 weeks from today. Now I have a one stop place to find a good recommendation. xoxo
