NEWBOOKS MAGAZINE AND ME.

I'm soooooo excited ......... 


Having volunteered to be a reviewer for NEWBOOKS MAGAZINEThe magazine for readers and reading groups, I was delighted when, last week, I received my first assignment.


Designed as a way of getting to know me, I was sent a book,



LYRICS ALLEY by Leila Aboulela, which, though previously featured in the magazine, I was asked to review as a way of demonstrating my style of writing, etc.


 No sooner said than done, I set about reading and reviewing said book which will feature here on Pen and Paper in the not too distant future.


And that's not all ...........


Thanks to my good blogger buddy DIZZY C  there are also several other possibilities that I'm looking into. Thanks to both Dizzy and NAIDA for all their help and advice.

Congrats Tracy! That sounds like it will keep you busy for a while :)

On Alloy of Law - I've read it already, and thought the story didn't live up to the hype by tor.com, nice as it is was. Wait for the paperback on this one :)
