So here we are! It’s the last day of the Valentine’s Week E-Book EXPLOSION! We’re a little less than two hours away from our last giveaway. The author I’ve chosen for last holds a special place in my heart. She has learned that passion, determination and confidence in yourself and your abilities makes even the most unreachable thought, idea or project be within your reach. I learned the same thing when I started scrounging up deals on this site when I first started out. Look at it now! Reviews, contests and I’m doing a straight out blog post right now!
I think you’ll see more of these from me in the future. I know you will see some interviews and guest bloggers. I also want to start recommending books again. It’s one of the things that got this place started. I hope that you all that have found me, whether it be by accident or through this contest, stay and help make this place great. I can’t do it alone.
This contest has taught me a lot. For one it taught me I was crazy enough to put this whole thing together in three days. Two days of asking for authors to join me and one day of collecting codes. It taught me that nothing large scale can be done without some form of drama hitting it. Most of all it taught me to have a good backup plan! In this case it was good to have like three. I’ll be honest with you, there were times where I felt like it was sucking up my day. Two hours pass very quickly when all you think about is when you have to post again. It was also very discouraging to have what drama that did happen force me to change my plans when things were going so well. I felt bad but I never faltered. You might ask why but all you’d have to do is look at how much fun you all were having to see that it clearly outweighed it all.
Am I going to do this next year? YES! Am I going to outdo myself before then? More than likely. I’m already brewing up ideas.
So I just wanted to take this time to thank you all. For being supportive of me and my idea to not only introduce you to new authors but to introduce new authors to you. I want to thank you for telling me to push on when you knew I had to be second guessing whether or not this was a good idea. I didn’t really know how many of you would follow me through Facebook gremlins and two moves. I ask you all to leave reviews for the books you’ve won. I feel the group I selected are a truly amazing bunch and I’m sure there are more out there that I haven’t found yet. When I do, I’ll be sure to share them with you!
I would also like to thank all the authors for trusting me to do this even when some of you had no clue what my plans were. That shows some real trust right there and believe me I would never do anything to break that. I will continue to do everything that is in my power to help you. I will always be up front and honest with you as I feel a reviewer should be and most importantly a friend should be.
This was a blast and I hope I have a bunch of happy readers and happy authors because I am definitely one happy bookworm! I really cannot thank you all enough.
