Reading Recommendations … Spring Cleaning

Dear RR Authors,

Since Nov. 2013, I have been promoting all of you on this blog – more than 300 authors altogether! Some of you have reciprocated with promotion for me and other authors and for that I thank you wholeheartedly. This was, after all, part of the agreement when you committed to participation in this blog. Some of you have even become very good friends of mine, indeed!

It was time though to whittle down the lists somewhat, and I have now updated the two alphabetical lists of authors to around 150 or so names. (If I have published a promotion page for you on this blog that page will still remain active. It’s just the lists of authors where I’ve deleted names.) On these final lists, I kept anyone who has:
1) promoted me or their fellow authors
2) maintains contact with me through social media by sharing and commenting
3) anyone I know personally (i.e. have actually met in person)
4) anyone whose writing I’ve read and really enjoyed – regardless of any reciprocal promotion they may or may not have done for me and others.

For those of you who remain on the lists, please check your promotions and let me know if there’s an update in any of the information. Or, if you have a new publication you’d like to promote, please let me know about it. (I currently only have two updates queued for this next month.) I try to keep tabs on new publications, but I know I have missed many. I’ll very happy to give you further promotion on the blog, no matter when your “latest” was published.

And don’t forget about the review blog I publish! I will repost positive reviews you receive for any of your books on reading recommendations reviewed, but you need to let me know! This is further promotion I offer for anyone who has been promoted on Reading Recommendations. Just send me a link to the website or review where it appears online.

So check here, A-L, and here, M-Z, to see if you are still listed, and let me know how I may further promote you.

If you discover that your name has been dropped from the list and you’d like to be reinstated (because you have new information to add and/or you will be offering me and the blog some reciprocal promotion) then send me an email and let’s talk.

Either way, I’m always happy to hear from fellow authors!

All the best,

Some of your print books I have promoted on the blog …

This is just what’s at the trailer right now! I have many, many more at the house on Bequia, in my storage unit in Calgary, and on my eReaders!

  1. HI Susan, I’m glad to see my name on the list. I’d like to have you on Reade and Write again–perhaps an interview this time? Let me know your thoughts.

  2. It’s a privilege to be a part of this wonderful community of authors that you’ve curated, Susan. Thanks to you, I’ve discovered new books, new friends, and new genres I may never have tried otherwise. Thank you.

  3. Hi Susan, how are you doing? I have your first book on my bursting TBR list. Hope to get to it this year. I have a new book I published in March and two more coming out this month or next. I will send you all the links when they are published. Thank you so much for your continuing support. Xo❤

  4. Susan, you are one of the most giving people I’ve ever known. Your heart is huge, and we writers owe you so much. This blog is magnificent. I want you to know that you are a blessing in my life, and that has nothing to do with the amazing promotion that you’ve given me as a writer. You are simply a wonderful human being. I don’t say it enough; thank you for all that you do for others. You are special to me and so many others.

    • Aw, shucks!! Thank you, Becky!! You’re very special to me for all the support and encouragement you’ve given over the years! I’ve really appreciated your friendship!

    • Thanks, Lena! Please check the lists of authors I’ve already promoted. If you’ve read and written a review of anything there then let me know (susanmtoy (at) and I will post that to my rrr blog. It could even be a lengthy review you’ve posted to Amazon or Goodreads, as long as it’s a positive review. If you’re just getting into reviewing then check through those lists, see if there are authors or books that interest you, and I’ll put you in contact with the authors about reading to review their books. If you have a review blog – all the better!! Do post a link to that here or send me the URL, and let us know if you are accepting submissions to be reviewed.

      Even if you don’t write to a review blog, just reviewing on Amazon or Goodreads or other sites would be a huge help to all authors!
