I'm stealing a couple of things from Cecilia, at the epic rat.
First: In her book reviews, Cecilia leads with the opening sentence. I'm never certain what parts of books to quote, so this is a good starting place for me. It's also a good exercise for my writing buddies.
Second: I'm doing away with my own giveaways* except for Monthly GRaB (the technicalities of which we're still working out - my own rules will be slightly different than C's.)
* - so far I've only ever received one set of giveaways from a publisher but I will certainly continue to solicit such giveaways and present them to you regardless of GRaB.
