Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

And remember, I didn't hear back from everyone who signed up so I'm sure the actual numbers are much higher.

This post is a little long, so I'm going to end it here - I have a few more stats to share but I'll leave that for another day.

I huge huge thank you to everyone who participated!

NetGalley January is a go and I'm hoping to make it the best one yet!

  1. Wow, those are some impressive totals!!! I've already missed the previous NetGalley months, and I really want to participate next time around. :) I can't wait.

  2. Those are very impressive totals. I'm sure the publishers are very excited that we read that many. They must love Netgalley month in that it gets people reading the books they requested.


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
