Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and I shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we plan on reading in the coming week.
On a Book Bender Recap
- Review: Dead Sky Morning by Karina Halle (7) — Dastardly and bastardly things are afoot.
- Top Off Tuesday — The teasing tattoo was a hit.
- Joint Review with Kelly: Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (6) — Interesting premise, we want more answers.
- Plagiarism: We’re Still Doing It — My only point for this post was that plagiarism is still happening and we need to be more aware of our actions and how we use words and ideas. We also need to deal with it quietly and professionally without living out our drama on a public forum unless that’s what the situation calls for. If you want to see an example of what a professional take down notice email looks like, I would be happy to provide one. You just have to ask.
Amanda Around the Blogosphere
(In the craziness of this week, I forgot to add this section to my post. But… here it is.)
- GLA @ FBNLT: Bred by the Tuskmen by Rayna Corday
- GBNLT: My Last Trip to Hawaii by Erica Andersen
- GLA @ FBNLT: The XXX Files, Episode 1 by Lexi Maxxwell
Meanwhile, in Amanda’s World
This week was rough. If I’ve been absent from your blog or social media this past week, that’s why. I’m hoping the coming week will be better and I’ll be back to my usual self.
On a positive note, I revealed Language Management’s new look for 2013. If you already signed up for my newsletter, it should have landed in your inboxes yesterday. If you didn’t, you might be lucky enough to find a link to my newsletter on my Facebook page. (And while you’re there, you can like my page, too. /shameless self-promotion) I would love to hear what you think of the new look.
Around the Book Blogging Community
- Andrea (The Bookish Babe) has a great post about perspective–and what that means for blogging.
- Kelly (Reading the Paranormal) uses what happened to me as a springboard to talk about maintaining our blogs on a more regular basis.
- Jenny (Supernatural
Shark SnarlSnark) shares with us the difference between fiction and reality when it comes to romance.
- Maureen Johnson had a wonderful and insightful (and somewhat scary) post about how the Internet is a little bit like playing telephone.
- Jamie (Perpetual Page Turner) asks her readers what they do about their butts. Yes, you read that correctly. Just go read the post. I promise it’s worth it.
