Title: Reviewers and bloggers for PBs?
Post by: JodyJS on June 13, 2016, 09:11 AM
I'm not on social media much, so I'm wondering who some reputable names are in PB book reviewing and blogging. Thanks for your thoughts!

Hi Jody,

I had Race Car's cover reveal with The Little Crooked Cottage. They are great to work with and their blog is adorable.

PB Builders -- group blog and quite often they choose other PBs to review/study. Wonderful site.

This seems to be a site that promotes and reviews books for younger children:

I was going to suggest Lynne Marie, but I see you've beaten me to it. She used to live up by me. Lovely lady.

I thought of Lynne, too! I didn't realize she used to live by you, Debbie. She lives fairly close to me now.

I second Tara Lazar, also. Her blog has tons of readers thanks to everyone who follows her for PiBoIdMo each year, and I always love her posts.
