So for our new friends here, GA&AG is the Guest Author & A Giveaway.
It happens the first Tuesday of each month. And only then. As I’ve said – originally I never imagined having so many authors willing (or wanting!) to guest here. And most give things away as well. (Aren’t they all so lovely?)
I do only offer the quirky interviews for the GA&AG … but what should I do to make it more special? To stand out more? I mean, it should be a big deal, right? Considering it’s only once a month, and more, I’m scheduled halfway through 2014. (The third week of June 2014 is the first open spot, actually.)
It’s also one of the few things that goes on the blog calendar. (Yeah, did you know there’s a calendar?)
Thoughts? Ideas? What would you want to see?
Oh and quick sidenote – my newest post is live at Heroes & Heartbreakers, and I’m talking about athlete heroes! Come play with me!
Lastly – a friend is asking – do you read Gena Showalter? Which of her book(s) or series would you recommend to a newbie? Incidentally – if you ever have a question like that, do let me know! I’d love to see if we could get some answers/help.
Thanks so much. <3
You know, the usual.
First of all, I broke up the About and FAQs pages. Well, the FAQs weren’t so much questions people were asking, as an ideally preventative measure. (Still doesn’t particularly work, but hope springs eternal!) You’ll notice in “About” I put a whole “Hi, my name is Limecello” so maybe people will stop writing “Hi there” or “Hi” or “Blank Space” – or… this one amused me (and Liz)… “Hi Liz!”
I mean, I know not everyone will read or see it. But damn am I tempted to just ignore emails where people refuse to address me. I’ve ranted about it a bit on twitter etc- but I mean the people who after I’ve emailed and responded, with signature and all. When it’s obvious the person is just refusing to say “Limecello” – and it’s not some sort of informal no signatures thing. I mean, yeah, I know I can be unreasonable, but even in those circumstances I’m never 100% straight out there.
We’re working on a review “grade” scale too – do you guys have any sort of preference/better connection with units of measure? Letter grades? Number ratings? Stars? I do want to have some sort of scale, because at times you can’t quite articulate how you feel about the book, even with the review, so the grade rounds it out.
And as always… still looking for reviewers. Cuz you know – there are a lot of new books coming out, always!
p.s. Did you guys know I have a calendar up as well, that loosely details who will be visiting the blog? The features, anyway…
