    I have enjoyed visiting your site. I am a member of Goodreads and read where authors have been interviewed by you. How can I get interviewed? I so want to get things like this done for my book published in May 2010.
    Your response will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Shelagh,

    I’m writing to see if you’d be interested in reviewing author Erica Nelson’s book Happiness Quotations: Gentle Reminders of Your Preciousness. Erica is an inspirational happiness coach and author. She wrote Happiness Quotations as a unique and inspiring way to uplift your day. Happiness, she believes, is a practice that you can start, today, from exactly where you are.

    Best-selling authors including Jack Canfield, Joe Vitale, and Marci Shimoff have all given enthusiastic endorsements of Happiness Quotations. Says Jack Canfield, “Erica Nelson’s Happiness Quotations is a great way to start your day. This book can help you get into your awareness of the powerful aspects of yourself, and let go of the critical self-doubt.”

    I’ve been working with Erica to increase the visibility of her book online. We’re in the process of setting up a blog tour for April 25 through May 6. Would you be interested in being a stop on the tour? We have three different ways your blog could participate: (1) We would be happy to provide you with a copy of the book for a review you would post during those two weeks, or (2) Erica could provide a guest post for your blog or (3) you could post a Q & A with Erica using your questions or questions we provide.

    If you’d like more information about Erica Nelson and Happiness Quotations, feel free to contact me or go to Erica’s website, http://happinessquotations.com/.

    Thank you for your consideration,
    Mary Walewski

    I hope you will review “THE COVERING” by Miss Cheyenne Mitchell. Ask the question “WHAT IF NEARLY 200 YEAR OLD VAMPIRES WERE RAISING TWO, NORMAL, TEENAGE DAUGHTERS OF THEIR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD?” Take the horrifying journey with Celia Bellis and her sister , Drew, as they uncover the deep, dark, nefarious secret being harbored by their family members. Also, “SYROIA” by Miss Cheyenne Mitchell. “WHAT IF THE DEMONIC SPIRIT OF A LONG DEAD MURDERER YOU NEVER KNEW WAS AFTER YOUR SOUL TO CONTINUE ITS’ KILLING SPREE?” Yet IT is someone closer to you than you know. Let Arquito Desmunde tell you about the horror he suffered beginning at the age of 22 years old of demonic possession, which happens to be the same age the demon was when it was murdered over one hundred years ago.
