Coffee, Books, and Poetry
In this week’s post I’ve decided to include a fun little poem about coffee. I once joked with my husband that I’d write a poem about my favorite beverage some day. Then I got to thinking why not. I’m also including a site recommendation for indie authors and anyone who loves to read.
An Ode To Coffee
Sweet coffee of mine!
You brighten my days
with your zesty aroma –
your pungent zing
teasing my tongue.
And without you to fill my cup,
I’d still be in bed
dreaming of follies and fools.
But you’ve never let me down.
My mind made nimble
by your dark roasted nectar –
my feet made light.
The pep back in my step
as I shake off the night.

Readers Review Room – The Site for You
Thanks to the tweet by a fellow indie author a couple weeks back, I discovered a fantastic site for authors and readers alike. And so I wanted to share my discovery with you.
For all the readers out there, if you love to read and own an e-reader (the site promotes Kindle editions), you’ll discover some great books by a variety of talented indie authors from the site’s author page. If you would love the opportunity to read those same books for free, you can join the amazing readers review team on site and have the books delivered straight to your digital device.
For indie authors, if you’re looking for a great site to list your book, I highly recommend Readers Review Room. After submitting your book for consideration, the RRR team will get back to you within a couple days to let you if your book has been accepted.
When accepted, the RRR team will request whatever information is needed for your personal author page. You can also submit promotional images and videos that you would like added to your page. The RRR team will take care of the rest. It’s that easy!
As well, the site has an aforementioned review team that loves to read, and if a reviewer decides to read your book, he or she will be kind enough to provide a review. I should mention that because it’s up to the reviewers which books they want to read, reviews aren’t guaranteed.
I haven’t received any reviews yet, but I love knowing that my book is in front of a group people who, should they ever decide to read it, will provide me with a review. Because as you know, reviews help potential readers decide whether or not to buy our books. Reviews matter. So my fingers and toes are crossed.
I’m including a link to Readers Review Review homepage and to my RRR author page.
That’s it for this week’s post. Until next time, be kind to yourself.
