A new appearance & Book TV

It's June 1st and some new things are on the horizon here in Rae's Land.

First off, the biggest event in the publishing industry is here: BookExpo America in New York City! Hopefully I can make it in the coming years, but for now I'm going to be tuning into my local C-Span to watch it on Book TV, which has become my new weekend obsession. Tomorrow the channel will be showcasing ethics in book reviewing as well as what the mystery is behind best-selling books.

And speaking of book reviews, some of my myspace friends have been talking about the ethics of book reviews and how to be wary of unsavory reviewers out there trying to get a hold of your book to sell on ebay & amazon (check these sites if you have a bunch galleys or ARCs you've given out to make sure your book isn't out there!) as well some other online bookstores.

Author E. Lucas-Taylor gives insight into finding and getting good reviews for your book in her latest blog (if you're on Myspace I highly suggest you sign up for her blog because her entries are very invaluable with some great advice). Also, Pam Osbey of Osbey books also posted in her blog an article to the Midwest Book Reviews about Spotting Phony Reviews!

Also, I have another project I'm really jazzed about. :-D

Noel over at Gerard After Dark has asked be to join as a guest author contributor!! It's a fabulous blog not only dedicated to the hotness and breathtaking manliness of one of the most talented men in the entertainment industry aka Gerard Butler:

Swooon. And you should hear the man speak with his Scottish's like...whoa...

It's also a blog that centers around the empowerment of women of color. The gal who runs it is really a great person so it's gonna be pretty awesome social issues addressed and many pretty pictures to be posted. There's also another blog along the same lines in the works and I'll be posting that link here as well.

There's tons going on at the moment including the creation of the Oasis. I'm slowly formatting it as the days go on and I think it's getting to be halfway. We have some great issues coming up so keep an eye out.

Also, the newsletter is going to be coming out in a few days. To sign up for all the updates going on with me, be sure to check out

I'm also working on a bunch of different writing projects with varying genres. I'll be announcing the progress of those in the coming weeks ahead.

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
