All About Me

Hi guys! I'm a classroom teacher of about 14 years turned a stay at home mom. We decided to homeschool both of our kids instead of putting them into a public school after leaving a private school. We have had a great time and I love being with my kids. I am very fortunate that God has allowed me to stay at home with them. My daughter (Wintry Words) is an avid reader and blogger of YA books. Listening to her talk about books and blogging made me want to try my hand at it. As far back as I can remember, I have always loved reading, but life as you know, sometimes gets in the way. I'm starting out on the book blog review road after joining Goodreads. Lately I have been exposed to lots of awesome books, authors, and reviewers.

So in short form, I'm a Christ follower, family loving, Sprite Zero drinking, homeschooling mom of 2, who loves to read and blog a little. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy reading the books and writing the reviews.

Also, I only take YA review requests (or anything zombie). And like most book bloggers I usually have a full plate of review requests. If you don't hear back from me please remember it's not me being rude it's just that I am a mom and wife first.  :)

Hello Blog Tour Host & Book Reviewers

First let me introduce myself I’m Paulette Harper Johnson, author, and owner of Write Now Literary Virtual Blog Tours (WNL). WNL has been open for business only a few months. I'm excited to offer another venue for Christian and authors of clean books to gain more exposure. This includes children’s, non-fiction, fiction, historical, and romance. I am seeking possible places for my authors to either have an author interview, guest post or bloggers participating in the book tour. As a tour host you will:
• Post content (head shot, book cover, bio, interview, etc which I will provide) on your blog on a specific day that is selected
• Share by announcing the blog tour to your social network and followers
• Post attached banner (suggestion) for added exposure
• Post review on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles and other sites
If this is something you would like to participate in please respond to this email.

Hi there,

I believe my novel is supposed to be featured on your site in a couple days (Suicide Forest). However, I believe Tracee sent you an old cover. I was wondering if I could send you the recent one to post instead?
