Getting to know you, while you get to know me.

Welcome to Kristina's Books & More!

Authors, reviewers, fans are all welcome here!

Since this is my first official blog, I wanted everyone to get to know me (and I wanted to get to know everyone a little better in return) before I crack the whip and get down to book business.

Please post a comment and tell me a little bit about yourself. You can do a mini bio or you can be completely random. It's up to you! I also ask that you ask me at least one question. It can be book related or not. You can ask me as many questions as you'd like. Tomorrow I'll answer all the questions, and throw in a few random facts in a new blog post!

I'm hoping to have my first book related stuff out Friday! The first featured book/author is:

The Keepers by Monique O'Connor James!

Thank you all so much for taking the time to check out my blog! There is some really awesome stuff in the works that I hope you'll stay around to check out! Please invite people to follow my blog. :)

Happy reading!

  10. Hi Kristina!

    I think I clicked the right thing to be a follower.

    Congratulations on starting your blog. I know there are a lot of book reviewers/bloggers out there, so I'm happy to meet you as you start out.

    I'm just starting out as an author, so we'll build our followings together.

    My question: What made you want to start a blog - and why a book reviewing blog?

  11. Hi Kristina,

    I was finally able to post this! What follows is what I posted on Author Exchange:

    I wish you much success with your blog!

    What genres are you willing to review? Any certain ones you'd love to read?

    If you'd ever want to read/review any of my works, just give a holler.
