Hey, y’all! New year, new book blog, and I am glad to see y’all at The Plain-Spoken Pen. Welcome to new followers and to those of y’all who’ve followed me from Big Fat F. That blog will still be active, just focusing more on life and family. This blog here is going to be ALLLLLLL about the books.
It’s still a little rough around the edges, and I’ll be improving it as I go, but I just could not wait to get things rolling. Only five days into 2021, and I’m already reading and getting ready to lay down some reviews. Like the tagline says, book reviews, no baloney. As you’ll see on my What My Ratings Mean page, when I’m reading for fun, I read for FUN. I generally pick books that I think I will enjoy, and a lot of my reviews are likely to be four-star, with a generous sprinkling of five-star reviews. But if a book isn’t all that, if it doesn’t live up to the hype, I’ll give you the straight scoop.
Now, when I’m reading to proofread or edit, I’m all business, and pretty good at it. If you’re looking for a good proofreader or copy editor, check out the Work With Me page for more information on my services. I don’t really consider myself a writer, but I enjoy helping those who are writers put their best foot forward.
And now, let’s get this book blog going. There’s a lot of reading and reviewing and bookish shenanigans ahead. Glad to have you along for the ride!
