BETTER THAN SLEEP

Magnus coverThis is the story of Magnus Erlendson, Earl of Orkney in the Twelfth Century; or rather (as it says in the book) “half-earl”, for there were two heirs, Magnus and his cousin Hakon Paulson; the story of Magnus, the mystic, who cares for the seal injured by hunters, who sits in the prow of a ship reading a book during a great sea battle, and was born to be a saint.

Hi there, welcome to the Book Blogger List. Check out our website and let us know if you would like to join our email list of upcoming events.

I am part owner of Literati Author Services which promotes both Independent and Published authors. We host blog tours, cover reveals, and book blasts in order to help promote the author’s works. We currently have over 700 bloggers on our mailing list and wanted to see if you may be interested in joining this list.
Bloggers that participate can increase their views to their site by being a part of a blog tour, cover reveal, or book blast, as well as the added benefit of reading newly published books by both independent and published authors. We also host monthly giveaways for our participating blogger family as a “thank you.”
Our tours are very well organized and blogger friendly. We are bloggers ourselves with Literati Literature Lovers and have worked closely with many best-selling authors. We work with all genres and are looking to expand our blog tour host.
We need bloggers of all genres, especially young adult, mystery/thriller, fantasy, historical, new adult, paranormal, and adult fiction to join our list. The authors we work with write all genres from paranormal to erotica, and all genres in between.

If you are under 18 years of age, please disregard this email and do not sign up for our mailing list, as we deal with authors of all genres. We don’t want any underage readers receiving sign-ups for adult content reads. All three of us are moms, and we would not want our kids getting adult blog sign-up emails. This has nothing to do with a teen’s ability to blog or review. 

If you ONLY want to receive book tour announcements for specific genres, example i.e., contemporary etc., please put that in the comment section of the form. We will add you to a separate genre-specific mailing list.

If you would be interested in joining us, please click the link to fill out the simple blue envelope jotform and we can add you to our list.

Karen, Rosette & Michelle
Literati Author Services
We take care of the details, so authors can let their imaginations take flight.
