My first published book is available now!

I wanted to share with you, that my first book, Lester's Great Adventure, is now available for sale.
It has been a very exciting week, and exciting journey to having the book published.

If you wish to purchase a copy you can do so by going to one of the links below - I'd love to hear/read your thoughts on the book. I should have a book page up on GoodReads soon.

I've been working away the last couple of days, promoting the book and designing my new website. The website is still a work in progress, but you can go visit it here. I hope to have more information up soon, but for now, you can see all of the details about the book, and I hope to have a blog-like feature up shortly.

I don't know if I will do full on reviews, but I will be posting some of the books I've read and you can still see what I'm reading on GoodReads. And of course you can find me on Twitter (@DobsonJulieM). I may post some of my favourite reviews/books up, but some of them need some editing, as I have some rather, embarrassing, grammar mistakes in them (it's why editors are so awesome!), but I'm undecided on that as well.

Again, I want to thank everyone who has stopped by the blog over the years, it's a goodbye to the blog, but not to me. I hope to still see you all around.

Saying Goodbye to the Blog.

After a lot of thought, I've decided to say goodbye to this blog.

I'm both sad and relieved about this decision. On one side, I've dedicated nearly ten years of my life into reviewing books on this blog, and I've met and discussed books with some fantastic people. On the other side, my drive to review books is no longer where it was. As you've seen, in the last few years my posts have declined significantly, while some of that was due some personal hiccups in the road, I also don't have that desire to review the books I read. It's become a chore, rather than a fun hobby.

Another reason for saying goodbye is I'm focused on a new adventure in my life - becoming an author. I'm working on an author website, writing more books, and promoting the one (and hopefully more), I have published.

I have saved a backup of the blog, in case I decide to come back to it, and you can still find me on Goodreads, and eventually my author website.

Where to find me:
Facebook Page (for my first book, Lester's Great Adventure)

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by over the years - it has been fun and, I look forward to sharing this next step in my life with you.
