Crystal’s Many Reviewers: Top 50 of 2015!

Crystal’s Many Reviewers: Top 50 of 2015!

We are sure there are some questions that authors or readers may have.  These are some of the common questions that we have been asked!


  1. Why should an author use a blog to promo books?

By using blogs to help promote books increases the amount of people who will see your book. Blogs have a large reach of people who are always looking for a new read, and by promoting with them you will then have access to that reach as well.

  1. What platforms do you post your reviews on?

We currently cross-post all of our reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. If requested, we can/do post on Barnes & Noble. However other platforms are up to the specific reviewer. We can NOT post reviews on Smashwords unless we were gifted the book via them.

  1. If my book gets a review below 3 stars, am I informed before posted?

What’s the real secret to radiant beauty? It may come as no surprise that how we look on the outside is directly connected to the beauty deep inside us. What’s more, when we are burdened with the weight of low self-esteem, it’s all-too-visible in our physical appearance.

Now, fashion stylist Lakeysha-Marie Green has written a groundbreaking new guide to developing show-stopping beauty from the inside out. Inspirational and easy to use, The

The Seeds of Beauty Guest Blog!

blank spotlight banner-001

To be honest, I wasn’t going to write a blog post for this month.  But since I had an open slot, I figured that I should give it a shot and see what would come up.

And then it hit me, I have no freaking idea what to write a blog post about!  I’m not an author, I’m a blogger.  Since when do people care about what a blogger has to say?

And coming up with a topic idea on what to write about?  Holy crap, I feel sorry for every author that I have ever said “OH you can pick the topic we aren’t picky!”  Because now with me trying to do this post, and having no clue what to write about, I realize the pain and suffering that I am putting you through.  I’m so sorry!

Then, something hilarious happened.  I was setting up a guest post for … [Read More ...]

In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew.

Running Against Traffic Guest Post!

Uninvited Guest Disclaimer MaleTAG

Fate is conspiring against lawyer Anton Swann. First his grandmother dies, then he hits the worst traffic of his life on the way home from her funeral, keeping him from friends in London—and possibly a much longed-for sighting of his ex. And finally the detour he thought would save him time ends with the electrics failing on his car, leaving Anton to trudge through heavy rain back to an old cottage he’d passed along the way, hoping to find help.

What he finds instead is the mysterious Dr. Stephen Miller, a man fighting his own battles. Anton is invited inside to join the tail end of an all-male dinner party, but this is no chance encounter. What Anton thought was fate is actually a spirit at work making sure he ends up at the cottage—and stays there until unfinished business is resolved for both Anton and Stephen. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 Listening to Andrea LeeTAG

Forced Disappearance by Dana Marton

SPODblankWren's RedemptionNineteen-year-old gymnast Wren Montgomery was America’s golden girl, but then it all came crashing down. As far as the media is concerned, it was a devastating ankle injury which began her downward spiral, but in her heart Wren knows better.

Now at twenty-two, after one poor decision after another Wren has become the “bad girl” of the gymnastics world. Desperate to break out of her slump and with nowhere else to turn, she decides to accept help from the best coach she ever had… the same man who spurned and then spanked her years ago.

Jonathan watched Wren’s fall from grace, and he fell … [Read More ...]

What price would you pay to rescue a friend from hell?

For Logan Conner, the answer is almost anything. Guilt-ridden over trapping his college roommate in a ghost war rooted in Portland’s pioneer past, Logan has spent years searching for a solution.

Determined to pay his debt—and keep Riley safe—Logan abandons Riley and returns to Portland, prepared to give up his freedom and his future to make things right.

Crushed by Logan’s betrayal, Riley drops out of school and takes a job on a lackluster paranormal investigation show. When the crew arrives in Portland to film an episode about a local legend of feuding ghosts, he stumbles across Logan working at a local bar, and learns the truth about Logan’s plan.

Their destinies once more intertwined, the two men attempt to reforge their relationship while dodging a narcissistic … [Read More ...]

In a moment of self-pity, she calls on the one person who she knows will make her smile.
