If You Ask Me: Don't Overlook Smaller Blogs!



When it comes to blog tours, author interviews and snagging those ARC books, the competition can be fierce. Granted, with sites like NetGalley and Edelweiss it’s become just a tad easier for smaller blogs such as mine to get some really great books to review but I still can’t help but feel frustrated every time I see words like “Must have at least *insert number here* followers/daily page views.”

I get it, I really do, publishers and authors want reviews to reach as many people as they possibly can and ARC books are limited in quantity. I don’t even want to mention the morons who are lucky enough to get an ARC and then turn around and upload them to sharing websites or sell them on ebay. Those two reasons are why, often times, blogs like mine get overlooked for big name promotions.

But we're not without our charms you know! We have a lot going for us to and don't forget, there's always to potential for small blogs to become big blogs. Never forget that some of those big name blogs that get all the goodies were once small little blogs that got overlooked more than once.

All some small blogs need is a chance to shine, then they can start to reach out on their own and maybe become something more but in order for that to happen, they need someone to take a chance on them.

Here are four reasons why publishers and authors shouldn’t be so quick to over look the little guys:

Throwback Thursday Review: Midnight Rescue by Elle Kennedy


Format: .mobi (purchased)
Publisher: Signet 
Release Date: May 1, 2012

Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage. And she's the good guy.

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: trust no one.
Abby's latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.

The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their new found passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.


I so wasn’t prepared for this book.

VARIOUS STATES OF UNDRESS: VIRGINIA





When the president's daughter risks everything with her sexy new boss, they're bound to find themselves in Various States of Undress! 


If she had it her way, Virginia Fulton—daughter of the President of the United States—would spend more time dancing in Manhattan's nightclubs than working in its skyscrapers.

So when she finds herself in the arms of sexy, persuasive Dexter Cameron, who presents her with the opportunity of a lifetime, Virginia sees it as a sign … but can she take it without losing her heart?

CEO-to-be Dexter Cameron knows he's taking a risk by hiring a stylish party girl to jumpstart his family's legacy department store. But the president's gorgeous daughter has her thumb on the pulse of Manhattan, and the partnership seems like a win-win … until Dex discovers that his goals now include more than securing the corner office—they include Virginia herself. Dex must decide: does he make a move up the ladder? Or on the girl of his dreams?

Excerpt (Rated "H" for HOT):

I don’t know about the rest of the men in Bluelick, but you took care of me in half a lap.

She laughed and then looked back at the fire station to see if she could spot him anywhere. Nope. Still grinning, she typed, You dirty pervert. Get your head out of your pants.

He texted back immediately.Wasn’t my head in my pants. It was something a bit more…handy.

The thought of him, watching her and…ahem…handling himself, sent her head straight into her pants. Don’t you have an engine to buff?

The engine is buffed. I buffed it for the better part of 3 minutes, thanks to you prancercizing in that outfit.

Red tank top over a jog bra and red running shorts? This is a perfectly ordinary running outfit.

Her incoming text signal dinged immediately. From the Nike “Cock Tease” collection. I sat here in all kinds of agony watching your tits bounce while you jogged around the square, remembering how it felt to be lodged between them. I’m not even going to tell you what the sight of your ass in those running shorts does to me. It’s begging to be spanked. I counted 5 laps. You do the math.

She tripped over her own foot, caught her balance, and looked around again. Still no sign of him, but she felt the heat of his gaze as profoundly as a touch. Her skin tingled. Her system hummed. She fought off a naughty urge to run five more laps. Not that she could. This time she’d know he was watching—which brought a whole new meaning to the term “runner’s high.”

The firehouse stood to her right, in all its historic redbrick glory. She boldly faced the building, put her hand on her hip, and sent the structure a defiant stare. When that didn’t produce any response, she typed, I feel so objectified. Is that all you see when you look at me? Tits and ass? Fine with her. High time someone did.

He sent a new picture over—of her staring at the firehouse. I notice every goddamn thing. Look at your long, toned legs. I might actually get bruised when they’re wrapped around my waist and you’re losing control. I’m also thinking, just for once, you be the firefighter and I’ll be the citizen in distress.

It took a lot not to laugh out loud, but she didn’t want to stand there laughing to herself in the town square like a crazy lady. Keeping her eyes on the screen, she typed, Is this before or after the spanking?

My shift ends at midnight. I’ll be on your doorstep at 12:05 and then you’ll find out.

Once a proud angel of Heaven, Nevar is now a servant of Hell, bound to a new master—the King of Demons. Consumed by darkness and driven to seek revenge, he set in motion a series of events that awakened the Great Destroyer, a force that will bring about the apocalypse. Now, he is the creature’s master and the fate of our world rests in the hands of an angel with only darkness in his heart.

Lost in the mortal realm without any recollection of how she came to be there, Lysia is only aware that she has survived a great battle. When she stumbles into a demon bar, she finds more than a chance to discover what happened to her—she finds a dark and deadly angel warrior who stirs fire in her veins and awakens soul-searing passion she cannot deny.

With the mounting threat of the Great Destroyer, the forces of Heaven and Hell against him, and a band of dangerous angels intent on capturing Lysia on his heels, can Nevar protect the beautiful woman who is light to his darkness and find the strength to save the world?
