Happy Friday – New Job

Happy Friday!

I started a new job this week. Wow, I’ve had about 25 jobs in my life time. Yuck. I don’t do well with stress and that is usually why I leave a position. Recently I found a super low stress job. One problem:

Low stress = low pay.

But I’m ok with that!!

A Great Creepy Novel

I’m sure all of you have heard of Shirley Jackson. She wrote the book The Haunting of Hill House.

If you haven’t read it, I encourage you to do so. There are no monsters or gore, just freaky goodness.

Speaking if freaky, Shirley Jackson also wrote We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I recently listened to this in audiobook form using the Hoopla app. Oh my goodness such great writing. Such amazing writing of messed up characters.

Link to that book on Amazon

How to Get ARCs – Part Two

This post is a follow up to another popular one on this blog How to Get Advance Reading Copies of books?

Authors want reviews from established book blogs and reviewers. Build a great blog or Amazon profile (with LOTS of thorough reviews before requesting!)

Here are a few more ways to get ARCs:

1. Amazon has a ‘coming soon’ listing. You can politely request an ARC from these authors or publishers. See them all here:

2. Search Twitter for the phrase “ARC giveaway” from an author or publisher.

3. How about free brand new books – not advance, not before a release date…

Try the Cloud Library  or the Hoopla app. I’ve been able to check out soooo many great ebooks! The app is a free download to iPhones or follow the instructions to add the app to your Kindle Fire

4. Not quite free but, how about Kindle Unlimited?

Happy reading!!
