Authors, book-bloggers and bookworms, contact me via Twitter, Facebook or the Comments box below, if you are interested in any of the following:

For authors:

Guest Posts - If you would like to write a guest post on this blog to promote your book, I will be happy to host it.  Indie authors particularly welcome.  

Similarly, if you host guest posts on your blog and are willing to let me post on yours, get in touch.

Blog Swap Day - Nothing too dramatic.  The idea is for you to write a guest post for this blog and for me to write one for you and post them on the same day.

For book-bloggers:

Book Reviews: If you review books on your blog, Goodreads, Amazon, etc. and would also like to post that review on this blog, just send me the link to your review and I will copy and paste it as a guest post and link back to your blog.  

Reviews of indie authors are particularly welcome.  The more places their books and reviews are mentioned the better we can support them.

For bookworms:

Book Reviews: Don't have the time to maintain a regular book review blog but want to help spread the word about a good book you have read recently?  Just let me know the book name, author, what rating you would give it out of 5, and any other thoughts you would like to share on the book, and I will post them here.  Again, books published by indie authors particularly welcome.  For an example of how your review will be posted here, see the post called 'Book Review - Chasing Pavements'.

Criteria for Selection:

Books of most genres will be considered, apart from erotica/porn and non-fiction.  

I'm particularly happy to hear from indie authors.

I will make my selection based on what I think is appropriate for my blog.

Neha Yazmin graduated from University College London (UCL) with a degree in Psychology and now lives in London and has worked in the financial services sector.

Her debut novel Chasing Pavements (Soulmates Saga, Book 1) was first published as an e-book in summer 2012, with the sequel released a year after.
