Cheers, friends, and welcome to a short preview of what we have coming up for you in the week ahead! We’ve got some great stuff in store, as always, with lots of outstanding guests and giveaways, some great tours and general fun.
Before I get to the business ahead, I want to offer a huge THANK YOU to all the readers, authors, publishers, and tour promoters who visit The Novel Approach each week. And, of course, a special debt of gratitude goes out to the TNA team of reviewers, without whom the site wouldn’t, couldn’t, function in the capacity it does today. I am humbled, day after day, by the talent that surrounds me.
Six years ago, on December 7, 2011, I claimed this URL, created this space, and have been committed to its integrity ever since. The site has seen me through personal loss, times when I wasn’t sure I would ever be okay again, but then there was the next book. And the next… I love this community, have loved it from the moment I reviewed my first LGBTQ book three review sites ago. Yes, we have issues—no family is perfect—and I do often question my place here, but I also believe with all my heart that with every story we read, our lives change: our perspectives broaden, our conscientiousness is raised and our capacity for empathy and understanding expands because we are seeing outside the limited boundaries of our own existence. That’s the fundamental power books have to transform, and I have infinite respect for those who wield that power responsibly.
So, having said all that, be to sure watch for some special Blogiversary Giveaways on Thursday!
