You’ll notice that my blog not only has a new theme but also two buttons added to the right bar. These are for Closed the Cover and Room to Read.
Back in January, I was contacted by Ashley LaMar, the founder of Closed the Cover. Closed the Cover is described as “a literary media outlet offering book reviews and other services to publishers and self-published authors. Services include: book reviews, author interviews, guest posts, featured articles and virtual (blog) tours. … the company has grown to include a variety of genres, multiple reviewers and other literary services.”
Closed the Cover works with small presses and self-published authors. I would encourage you to take a look at what Closed the Cover is doing, and to support their efforts.
Room to Read is an award-winning non-profit that promotes education through literacy and gender equality. The organization works with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to reach primary-school children. The organization promotes literacy for all while ensuring that girls complete secondary school and learn the skills and knowledge that they will need.
I am not getting paid for these endorsements, or getting any type of enumeration. So please visit both web sites.
