Here you’ll find Book Reviews, Book Recommendations, and Bookish Literary Motivations.

Are you also a BOOK Nerd? Devouring books, and living between pages? Books help me to relax and escape the craziness of this world. I also learn a lot. I’m intrigued by cover design, layout and formatting, the smell, feel and look.

With the onset of modern technology, nowadays I mostly read on Kindle or iPad, favouring various genres. I enjoy crime fiction, fantasy, thrillers, paranormal, and mysteries, but don’t limit myself to these genres. I’m on Goodreads and a Professional Reader on NetGalley.

BOOK Nerd’s Current Read!

The Galway Homicides by David Pearson. Murder, mystery, and suspense, set in Galway, Ireland.

Check it out on Amazon!

I have been collaborating with Authors on their book projects since 2014 and am familiar with the essential elements in the publishing process. Many Indie Authors have benefited by working with me to prepare their non-fiction, fiction, and poetry manuscripts for final publishing on Amazon and other platforms. Past projects included various creative services or a combination of:

  • beta reading
  • proofreading and editing
  • manuscript layout, design and formatting
  • book cover design for both ebooks and print on demand books
  • Amazon platform upload
  • social media marketing content creation for book promotion
  • setup of integrated social media profiles and author website/blog (WordPress, Wix, Squarespace)
