When I started blogging back in 2011, I would have never known that I would still be doing it in 2014. Blogging started out as an outlet for me – kind of like a diary - to release some of the pent up thoughts I had about the books I was reading. I had no known knowledge of the huge book blogging community that existed, and was surprised to meet so many other people who shared my enthusiasm. Because of this awesome community, I was able to discover so many great new books and authors and learned about the wonderful community that supports all of these indie and trade published writers.
One of the best things to happen ever since I started blogging was meeting so many great people who were just as crazy about books as I was. Over the years, I’ve met so many new friends online and they have all really enriched my life in one way or another. One of those cool peeps is, Ali Hymer of Ginger Read Reviews. She’s not just another reader or blogger who shares the same reading interests as I do, but also a really wonderful friend. I swear, she’s my long lost sister, if my sister were a pale, red headed woman. I’m amazed how similar our minds work the same way. It's like we share the same brain some times. It's awesome and a bit scary.
Anyways…..I do have a point to this post. It’s not just a letter to gush about Ali.
So, after working so well together on the Emerald City Author Event, we decided that we needed to find a way to continue working with each other. After some deep thinking and soul searching – LOL! Not a lot of soul searching went on because we have no souls – we decided to join forces and start a brand new blog and call is BLACK HEART REVIEWS. We’re sad to be letting go of our own blogs, but also really excited to be venturing into something new. Reading has and always will be a passion of mine, but I think this new venture has rejuvenated my passion for blogging. I’m really looking forward to having a co-blogger again, and I love being able to brainstorm with someone else, and come up with new ideas or features with someone who is like minded as me.
So…I hope you will all follow me on the new blog, BLACK HEART REVIEWS. The blog will officially launch on August 1st and we have some exciting things planned for the month. Ali and I are also working on another side project and I hope we’ll be able to give you more information on that soon.

Thanks again for all the support you all have given me on Keep Calm & Read Romance for the past year. Having to start all over again is a little scary but I'm excited to be doing it with a friend who shares the same passion as I do about books. I hope you stop by my new home and hope to continue to follow me on my new adventure!
