Anniversary!

Exactly on this day one year in the past I wrote my first post for “Temple Library Reviews” and back then everything looked so simple and easy. A reviewer read a book, did a review and waited for the readers to start noticing. Everything was due to me being new to the blog scene as well and just rushed without setting a connection first with the community and not a very strong one afterwards. All the while I wondered what to do about publishers and what to read and what to discuss and how to review. This seems to be an on-going process for me of discovering what works and what not and being all over the place.

So here I am one year later I almost got the right formula and I am contributing to two major fantasy blogs. However I never really got to stick together with the majority of the bloggers in the community, both the new ones and the more experienced ones, all of whom are undoubtedly awesome people to be around with. With that being said I am going to try and change things with yet another interesting project called “Reviewer Time”. This would be a massive pilgrimage around the reviewer community and feature a blog each Sunday starting this Sunday with "Fantasy and Sci-Fi Lovin' News and Reviews".

First I will start with a review of the review blog and some additional data. After that it’s on with the interview, if the bloggers are up for the talk. So everybody who is game, say so in the comments.

Don't hold back in the review, either. I want to learn how to improve.

Awesome, then stay tuned. After two or three days I will get a schedule up and running to see who else decides to tag along.

I'm down. My website (http://lincolncrisler.info) isn't just about reviews, as I'm a publishing author as well, but I do review alot (I'm an official reviewer for Leisure and Bloody Books).

Also, if you'd be interested in a PDF ARC of my upcoming collection of horror shorts (it's my second, and due out this summer!) drop me a line as well!
