Last post on this site – Again Hosting Directly from I Am A Reader

At one point I was blogging so much and promoting so many books I felt the need to create separate websites.

I had this site for promotional work.

Feed Your Reader to promote great ebooks deals.

Ebooks For Review for those looking to read books.

Times have changed…

Blogging for me is not what it once was.  In general blog traffic is on the decline.  At least that’s the case for me and most of the bloggers I work with. When I started blogging ebooks were the exception instead of the rule. Hardly anyone had an ereader. Now I don’t know any serious blogger who does not have at least one. Most bloggers I know are inundated with review requests and won’t commit to reviews for blog tours like they once would.

I still read everyday (completed 69 books so far this year) but I rarely take the time to create  reviews on my blog. Amazon and Goodreads are a much quicker and easier option for me. I have Kindle Unlimited and tons of promotional credits from Amazon so I no longer have the need to search for free and discounted ebooks.

As times and circumstances change I am one who opts to adapt.  So I am consolidating and scaling back in certain areas.

The first thing that is going is this site. I don’t have the need for it right now. I will still be hosting blog tours and blasts but will host those directly from I Am A Reader.  I already post tour sign ups and schedules there so this won’t be too much different from what I am already doing. For now ebooksforreview is working well to generate reviews for authors so I am keeping that site open.

I’m still passionate about reading. I love helping authors and promoting great books. I will continue to do just that but as times are changing the way I can best do that is also changing…

A Kiss and a Dream by Linda Andrews – Blast & Tour Sign Ups

Kiss and a dream

A Kiss and a Dream by Linda Andrews

She escapes with a dead woman’s name and finds sanctuary with a widower reeling from his wife’s betrayal. Can a love built on lies survive the truth?

Gretchen Foltz honors her late father’s request and ends up locked in the workhouse by her greedy brother. Dreaming of a home and freedom, she embarks on a dangerous winter journey. She awakes in a stranger’s home. Hiding behind a lie, she discovers a man worthy of her trust.

Kian Bryne is struggling to feed his four children. The last thing he needs is to rescue a woman stranded on the ice and running from her own demons. With his rich in-laws threatening to take custody his children, he’ll make a desperate alliance to keep his family together. When a simple kiss shatters their agreement, he’s left yearning for more.

Can they untangle the lies before someone separates them forever?

In this scene, Gretchen learns that Kian has a secret dream to be a carriage driver on the island. She has a dream of her own and knows the power of them, so she is determined to help him achieve his goal.

“It was a stupid dream. I should sell it, ta pay ya.” Kian jerked the covering into place and turned away.
“Nein. No.” She followed him. “Dream is not stupid. Dream is good.”
She slowed down to hit the correct sound at the end. Just so he understood.
He yanked pieces of oak from the pile near the door and dropped them into her pail.
“I help you vith your dream.” She pulled out the bigger pieces and returned them to the stack before tugging the handle from his grip. Selecting the right size for the cook stove, she filled her bucket. “You see.”
“Why?” He stared at the wood pile and huddled in his jacket.
She didn’t want to think too hard about the why. Instead, she clasped the pail to her chest and hustled for the door.
He beat her there and pushed back the snow, so she could squeeze through the opening. Before she exited, he stayed her with a hand on her arm. “Why?”
“Because I have the dreams, too. And you are helping to make them true.” She ducked under his arm and walked into the cold. More than he knew. Maybe more than was safe for her heart.
