What BBAW Helped Me Discover...

BBAW Nominations were due yesterday, Aug. 31. As a result of this fantastic process, I discovered some blogs that earned some nominations from me. I wanted to share these blogs with you because I only discovered them because of BBAW.

So here it goes:

1. Dark Phantom Review: Mayra offers even-handed reviews and interviews with a variety of authors on her site. And one of her current posts is about her own book, "The Slippery Art of Book Reviewing." I recommend all book reviewers check out her site and her book when they have a chance; it sounds like it has a great deal of advice to share.

2. The Lair of the Undead Rat: Gregory offers his insights on the latest suspense, horror, and thriller novels on the market. If you are looking for the next good read in this genre, his site is the best place to start looking. He earned my nomination for the BBAW category of Suspense and Thriller reviews.

3. Letters on Pages: This site offers a variety of non-fiction reviews for books dealing with historical events in World War II to the rise and fall of the pro-wrestling industry. Very insightful and well-written. If you are looking for a non-fiction recommendation, I suggest you try this site, which earned my nomination for the BBAW Nonfiction Blog category.

Those are just some of the great blogs I found this past week while searching the Web for nominees. For the evolving list of blogs engaged in BBAW, click here.

Thank you for those kind words and the nomination. The Lair of the Undead Rat has only been in existence for a couple of months but I'm pleased to see that it is working for you. The Lair's sister site, ...With Intent to Commit Horror (www.theundeadrat.com) has a lot of horror booklists with more to come and serves as a companion piece to The Lair.

Let me know if there are any other ways I can help you find a good scary book.

By the way, I really like the work you've done here. Thank you for finding me and letting me know you're out here.

I really just find my horror books by chance or through recommendations from friends. But your site was so fantastic I had no choice but to nominate it. The companion piece site is something I will have to check out.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and offering your kind words as well. I hope that the book reviews, contest information, and other posts here fulfill a need for you and others as well. But heck, I just love to write.
