  9. I love your blog and your review style! I submitted a review request back in April. If you decide you're willing to give it a read and review, please let me know so that I can gift you a copy! Thank you for considering and keep up the great review work!

  10. Hello Dianne - thanks for retweet! I just tried to follow your blog (which is rather a nice one, isn't it?!), but Google wouldn't let me for some reason - I'll try again later. Anyway, I've read a couple of your reviews, and would love you to review one of mine. I'm a good girl when it comes to promoting blogs, too - I don't just ask for a review, never to be seen again! I'll be in touch shortly :)

  11. Dianne Bylo is, in my honest opinion, the best reviewer in the business! I've been traditionally published since 1990 and have never met a more sincere, honest reviewer in my entire writing career. Highly recommended! -- E. Michael Helms

  12. I found your site thru a Goodreads contest link. It didn't matter since the contest was over! So, I saw that you had other giveaways, but I hit at least 4 links where it shows the ending date for the contests and that they were still running. But EVERY TIME I did, I got an error saying it couldn't show that page. REALLY SUX, cuz you have a lot of good giveaways! I sure hope ur able to remedy this asap. Thanks!

  14. Dianne, you are the best friend an indie author ever had.

    First, thanks for the wonderful review you gave "Child of Privilege."

    Second, you did a STELLAR job with my author interview, the introduction of the book to your readers, the tweets, and the whole nine yards (including the patient education of a certain social media newbie author!).

    Third, I'm very grateful for the endearing comments and good wishes from so many of your wonderful readers.

    Finally, I've actually started "chapter 1, page 1" of a second novel. I guess I just can't get rid of this writing bug!

    As E. Michael Helms so succinctly noted, you are the BEST. A thousand thanks ... and let's stay in touch.

  18. Thanks for the opportunity to read one of your novels. Not my usual genre but I like to keep one or two on the shelf for when the mood strikes. I'm sure this one will be an immediate read for me. It looks really interesting.

  24. Dii is awesome and so is her site. She does the most wonderfully summarized reviews. She writes a better summary of my books than I could do, which is wonderful and special when she gives you a review. And I love her site, too, such diversity of content and great graphics! Class act!
