All YA Love: The Accidental YA Reader + Giveaway

 I read all different kinds of books, every type, every theme, every style, every genre; if it’s a good book I will read it. That is unless it is a YA Book. In that case the type, theme, style and genre still don’t matter; I’m not going to read it. The last time I read a YA book I was about 12 years old. At least that is what I thought until about a week ago, when I discovered that statement wasn’t quite so true anymore.

(Yes, for those of  you keeping score that does mean I have not read the Twilight Series.) 

When I was working I sat at a little table outside and read during my lunch break everyday. One morning I was running late and didn’t have any unread books on my e-reader. So, I jumped onto Barnes& to download one real …

Bookish Rants or Raves: My First Book Conference!

When I first started book blogging at the end of last year, I never thought I would have gotten as far as actually going overseas to attend a book conference.

Well, here I am, a Brazilian staying at a friend’s house in Upstate New York fresh out of the Authors After Dark Romance Unlimited Conference.

One of the first people I met online was author Stella Price. We became online buddies and she started talking about this conference she was organizing and right away my ears perked up and I felt like this was something I’d love to go to.

At the time I was living in Israel, but I had already started making plans. By April I had moved back to Brazil, but the plans kept on building and as fate would have it, it all turned out great.

Talking Covers: a Photographer’s Take

As a photographer I tend to look at things from a slightly different eye than most people – I don’t have my pricing set up like a “typical” studio, I don’t “make” clients pick certain photo’s, I do my best and THEY get to pick which photo’s they like best out of maybe 15-20 of the best shots…

The reason? What I would pick, is almost 100% NOT what the parent likes best…

One shining example I got just today…I worked with little beautiful little boy, and today his parents ordered the photo’s they wanted from our session – me, I would have picked this one as my favorite…

But his parents, they picked this one….

Now don’t get me wrong, the one above is great, I love it too BUT …

I had a booksigning for WHEN BLOOD CALLS a week ago, and afterwards, my husband reported that he overheard a woman wandering the aisles complaining to her husband: “Vampires! All these books about vampires! When are they going to stop?”

Interview Author Stephanie Julian

We are really happy to have Author Stephanie Julian here at Book Lovers Inc today. Her new novel, Size Matters was released last week and she is here to tell us more about this book and her new series The Fringe. Please give Stephanie a warm welcome.

BLI: Steph can you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Stephanie: I’m a writer, have been all my life. I’m also the mother of two sons, which is always an adventure, usually a smelly one, and the wife of a great guy. I’ve always been a reader and I sold my first book in 2002, a sweet romance. But sweet was so not my style and I turned to the dark side. Erotic romance is the perfect fit. Hot guys, hot sex, who can argue with that?

BLI: Describe a typical day of writing? Are you a planner or pantser?

Stephanie: Well, …

It’s kind of out in the open now that Dorchester isn’t doing so great financially (the whole shebang with RWA and not fulfilling contractual obligations meant something definitely had to be done) so I hope that the shift in focus helps them regain some stability and move forward. I’m a recent convert to the lovely world of ebooks so I think the possibility for them to turn things around is definitely there and this may be a big opportunity for them if it’s handled properly.

Bookish Rants or Raves: My Love/Hate Relationship with Blurbs!

I have this sort of ritual whenever I’m going to start reading a new book. I find the book on GoodReads and LibraryThing, read it’s blurb, mark as Currently Reading, add the image to my Blog Sidebar and start reading.

I have this obsession with book blurbs that cannot be healthy. Even during the book reading I tend to check back to the book’s Goodreads page and read and re-read it’s blurb. 

The thing is, one of my biggest pet peeves are book blurbs that don’t match the book or have outright lies in them. I cannot stand that, it irritates me to no end and I can’t understand how publishers allow that to happen.

Sometimes it is pretty clear that whoever wrote the blurb did not read the book, and I find that a bit hard to swallow =/
