Weekend wrap-up: On my blog/ In the blogosphere (3)

This week has been a busy posting week at Darkly Reading. I went on a bit of a paranormal romance binge last weekend so my reviews this past week definitely had a paranormal romance slant:
Her Vampire Husband by Michele Hauf (4 Stars)
Wolf Signs by Vivian Arend (delicious naughty read)
Blood of the Demon by Diana Rowland (4.5 Stars)

I also started a new post this week with Incident from Sordid Fantasy called Sinful Saturday Views in which I featured Clayton from Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. He is so yummy!

This weekend I checked out the Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference. I met some lovely new-to-me book bloggers and also heard some great information about book blogging, blog tours by authors, and publishers' and literary agents' side of the the story. You can still sign up and check-out the panels for the next two weeks if you're interested. Two new to me sites I learned about and figured I would share is:
http://booktour.com/ -where you can check out if your favorite authors are going to be doing a signing or reading near you.
http://www.savvyauthors.com/ -where you can sign-up to be considered for author blog tours: to sign-up click here.

 On to the good stuff - the giveaway for the ebook of Cry Sanctuary by Moira Rogers....
The winner is Bookie who says "I have a soft spot for Adam from Patricia Briggs series." 
Please be sure to contact me Bookie.

Thanks to all of you who stopped by and left comments this week! I appreciate it! And thanks to all of my fellow bloggers who gave me an award the past couple of weeks - I hope to do a post of them soon!

You had a wonderful week, Heather! You know I had a tough week and was therefore in lurking mode ;) But I'm coming out of that now and be here for your future posts, not only lurking but also commenting :)
And thanks for the links to the new sites!
