I went ahead and published my young adult novel. For reasons I'm sure everyone can understand, I'm using a different pen name for it, but I don't think there's any point in working too hard to disguise the connection... I'd be sure to mess it up, if I tried - I'm terrible at keeping secrets!

Anyhow, it's fun to try a new genre, but nerve-wracking as well. I have to figure out ways to promote the book and get people's attention on it, and I have NO name in YA (not that I'm a superstar in Romancia, but at least I know a few people).

If anyone's interested in getting a free copy of the book in exchange for a review of it, let me know - Amazon, Goodreads, your blog if you have one - wherever. And the review should absolutely be honest - well, if you HATE the book, I guess I'd appreciate it if you refrained from reviewing rather than leaving a total stinker, but that'd be your call. No coercion here, just one of many efforts to get the title in front of people's eyes.

Definitely my least favourite part of this writing business, but, whatever... I guess it's a necessary evil.

If you'd like to see more about the book, please check out Amazon, Goodreads, or my alter ego's blog!

I know, you guys didn't sign up for a bunch of YA babbling, but... you got it anyway! It's a special bonus! You're LUCKY!

Book Review

I'd love to ready your YA book. It's kinda funny at the timing, because I was just rereading some of my favorite books from a YA author in the last few weeks. And these are books that I discovered when I was in 6th grade, about two decades ago (that made me feel old). Just a heads up though, if you do pick me to read your book, it will be about 10 days before I can write the review. I'm getting ready to travel with three kids for a vacation, and I won't have the time I normally do to read. :( Oh well. Oh, I guess that I should say that I can post the review on Amazon and Goodreads. I don't have a blog. If your interested, just comment on this post, and I'll send you an email then. I don't want to clutter up your inbox with emails.

To All concern,Good day!I just want to make coenmmt on How some Manning Agency especially Manning agencies for Mariners, they are not upadated in remmiting contribution to SSS but they are updated in deducting contribution from the Seaman.This case happen in my Manning Agency wherein 3 of our crew when they verify thier SSS contributions they found out that there are no contribution being setteled by the manning agency for almost the whole duration of thier stay in the Manning agency.They only find it out when they try to ask the SSS office if they are allowed to make loan because they beleive that thier contributions are updated by the manning agency we are into.I just want to have some clarifications to the SSS management on how we are going to stop the wrong doing of these manning agencies.Thank you very much.
