Authors, readers, lend me your ears (eyes)!

Books for Breakfast - Book Reviews with a Twist, is undergoing a major revamp for an October 1 launch (beta). This is to prepare for the crazy, knock your olive out of the martini announcement on November 10, 2011.

You think you have read snark? Oh, no, my friends.

You think you have read descriptions of books thrown across the room? Well, perhaps that will be limited more...

Because I want new/old/published e-books, ARCs, and suggestions from readers. Loan a .pdf of your book to my nook. Email me about your recent publication. Tell me about the book that held you riveted on the flight home from Japan.


1. Email Kristin Dodge at booksforbreakfastblog at gmail dot com.

2. If you spam me, I will hunt you down and kill you by reading Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus using my George W. voice.

3. Know this blog. Know that I do not do interviews unless I am Lady Ga-Ga over an author or book. Know that I like to give away free books to my readers. Know other things about me than I am a reviewer who may or may not read your material based on how well you know this blog persona.

I am not afraid to quiz you over email, either.

4. I do not accept very few things. However, find a similar book that I have read to get a better shot. For example, if you have vampire poetry, you could refer to how much I despise Twilight and it inspired you (see, I also accept flagrant displays of fawning and lying).

5. Consider an ad space. It is cheaper than any other place online, and this blog reaches far fingers. Plus, there is the future fun... erpp, I am dying to tell y'all!

Tell your marketers, tell your moms. Let's do this.

Hello Kristin:

This post is not clear to me ... you want people to send you books they like and/or books they have written? You will interview people about what? Free books and ad space available with a quick overview about what you won't accept and don't like? Let's do what?

I enjoy your sense of humor and am amazed at how many books you are able to read while working and raising children but what are you planning, or will that become more clear in November?

Respectfully, Leslie in Adams Morgan

I'm sorry - I was so excited and trying the new Whip vodka (it does taste like whipped cream).

Email me with anything reading-related, but it is a word of advice to authors to KNOW the blog. I cannot tell you how many authors have offered to have a Q&A on Books for Breakfast. Good idea, wrong blog.

It will become clear by November, and if you were amazed before by the number of books, prepare to have your jaw drop. *hint*

You're back! Yay! I can't wait to see what you've got in store for us =)

I am so glad you posted, Kristina! The new blog erased all of my post buddies, so now I can retrace you. ;-)
