Wow, this looks different.
Hello everyone, and welcome to the newly re-designed TTC Books and more! A while back I finally bit the bullet, so to speak, and created a website for Author TM Smith (my crazy alter ego) and moved the majority of the Author functions over there, thus making the blog majorly about books and reviews.
While I really loved the bright and contrasting colors of my previous design, it wore on me after a while. I decided I wanted something clean, fresh and crisp. That is why you are noticing different curtains, it was time for spring cleaning! Now, this is still somewhat of a construction zone, I hope you wore your hard hat, so bare with me while I figure out the specifics and get MY pages up there at the top under the header, instead of over on the side.
The scenery isn't the only thing changing at TTC. My writing is demanding more and more of my time, so I've had to step away from doing reviews for MM Good Book Reviews. I'll still be reviewing here, on my blog, it just got to be too much being nailed down to a specific date, rushing through a read to get the review ready. I don't think that is fair to the people that follow my reviews or the Authors that depend on reviewers to be honest and fair.
I'm bringing on a reviewer to help level things out as well. There will be formal introductions soon, I'm just super stoked to have a new voice here on the blog to share their thoughts with you. Hopefully, between the two of us, we can continue to bring all you wonderful folks that follow the blog the top notch reviews and recommendations you've grown accustomed to receiving here at TTC. Neither of us are able to review full time, both of us being Indie Authors, but together things should balance out.
Finally, I've added a Monthly Comment giveaway to the line-up.
Every comment on Every post throughout the month will be entered into a giveaway at the end of each month. The winner will receive a giftcard from one of several online book sites... Amazon, B&N, iTunes, ARe and Dreamspinner Press. I'm very excited about this, a few other blogs have been providing this for their followers for a while and it's shown huge success. What I want to accomplish with this is adding a more interactive experience for readers and Authors. If you've followed the blog for a while, you'll know that Authors often reply to your comments. I'd love to see more of this going forward.
The rules for the giftcard giveaway are simple. Leave a comment on every post throughout the month (DO NOT FORGET TO LEAVE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION) and you'll get an entry for every comment. Your comments need to relate to the post in some way. A simple thank you to the Author for stopping by is perfectly fine. Remember, I have to approve comments before they post, so hateful or derogatory comments will not make the cut. Keep it civil folks.
So, keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more news and fun stuff here on the blog. Be sure to pop over to the Author of the Month tab and check out all the deets on Author Brandon Witt. There's even a giveaway for a signed book from his backlist, who doesn't want a new pretty on their bookshelf?
