We can’t believe it has been 2 years since Chrissy started Every Free Chance Book Reviews. It has been an amazing 2 years and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for EFC. The blog has gone through a few changes over the last year.
First, the blog design was done by the wonderful Lori at Imagination Designs. She has done an awesome job with my design and with all of the wonderful graphics! She also assisted (did everything) for the move from Blogger to WordPress. Thank you so much, Lori!
Second, EFC Services was launched. I offer freelance proofreading, editing, and manuscript critique services. Click the button below or use the tab at the top to view my rates.
Third, EFC added a new reviewer. We welcomed Melissa back in May. Check out the mini interview here. We have also added a contributing reviewer, Belinda. Be on the lookout for more from her in the coming months. Here is a picture of Melissa and I.
I really like our avatars…
For our Blogoversary, we decided to read each other’s all-time favorite books. Melissa had Chrissy read Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. Chrissy, on the other hand, had a hard time choosing her all-time favorite book. There were just too many to choose from. So, after deliberating long and hard between having Melissa read the entire Harry Potter series (because, really, who can pick just one as their favorite? It’s one book in many parts!) and Pride & Prejudice by the great Jane Austen, Chrissy settled on Pride & Prejudice. Be sure to check out our reviews this weekend.
We also asked you guys if you wanted to know anything about us or the blog.
We were asked by Brooke: How do you decide which books to review?
Chrissy: If an author I really like has a new book out, I will read it. If there is a book in a series I have been enjoying coming out, I will read it. If the book sounds interesting, I will read it. I post a review for just about every book I read.
Melissa: Viscerally. (Unless it’s a request from a killer publishing company. Then I always say yes).
Did you happen to notice the necklaces that Melissa and I are wearing in our picture above? Well, we are giving one of those away to one lucky US follower! Here is a closer picture for you.
This is a living locket from Origami Owl. Alyssa is the consultant that I ordered my lockets from. She can be found here and on Facebook. Check out the site. They have some really great things.
