New On The Shelf At Fiction Books This Week

Picture of an English red post boxMailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the last week. Be warned that Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home, where links may be added each week. So why not stop by, leave a link to your own Mailbox Monday post, oh! and don’t forget to leave a comment for our three new joint administrators, after all, we all like to receive them … ‘Mailbox Monday’

This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I generally make it a rule never to read or review works of non-fiction, simply because it is just not my preferred style of writing and I enjoy the pure escapism of knowing that a book is a product of the authors imagination.

However, having worked together with Geraldine closely in the promotion of her previous three contemporary fiction novels, when I recieved the email from her, requesting a review of her debut non-fiction book, I really had little hesitation in accepting.

I love the title of the book, the cover art is fresh and contemporary, at 80 pages there is no fear of a lengthy repetitive read and of course, the content is book related … so what’s not to like?


This may be the best time to be an author, but with thousands of books released daily, what will make your book stand out from the rest? Whether you’re published through a traditional publishing house or are self-published, every author should market his/her book. Although authors need to have a strong face-to-face presence, Authorpreneur in Pajamas focuses on how authors can build their platform in their pajamas while using online tools that increase exposure and visibility. We live in a virtual world, where digital has taken over paper, where smart phones, tablets and eReaders are now necessities, and where building your author’s platform can be done with a push of a button. Authopreneur in Pajamas teaches you how to build your author’s platform without leaving your home.

Hard core authors are determined about their craft, and they know that building a brand entails hard work. They eat, breathe and live their writing.

Next to motherhood, I personally believe that being an author is the best job in the world.

I am looking forward to sharing some great ‘new finds’ this week.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
