Fall Magic Book Swap OPEN


The Fall Magic Book Swap is open!

Who doesn't love a little bit of hocus pocus? A bit of myth and magic? Let's all gather round the bubbling cauldron, grab our brooms and dust off our wands! It's time for another amazing book swap! Here's the timeline:

Sign ups are from September 1st to the 14th.
Partner info will be sent out on the 15th.
Mailing will be due by the 30th.

Extensions are always fine as long as you check with me first. We all have busy times or get distracted.We get it. :)

Here's the requirements:

1. A grimoire. (a book, of course)

2. A witchy brew (a tea, drink mix or something similar)

3. A focus (a cool object that you think your partner may like. Focuses are often used by witches or other spell casters to help them concentrate their magic without exhausting themselves. Stereotypical items are crystal balls, but they can be anything, even a boot. lol)

4. Something to help prep your partner for winter. (they're so busy with their magic that they may have missed something vital in their getting ready for the cold weather. help them out! get creative!)

5. A spell (a note from you)


I hope you all have fun with this! Magic can mean anything. You can lean toward the magic of mind reading, to the magic of time travel, to the magic of friendship ala My Little Pony. I don't care! Just enjoy yourselves! You know I'm laid back and just want us all to have some laughs. All questions can be sent to me, Mallory. Like I've already said, if you need an extension, just ask. 

I love you guys! You never stop amazing me with your creativity!

Amok! Amok!

Amazon is apparently removing reviews . . . again

And some authors are bitching . . . again.


Halfway civil discussion here:




Including the observation that it may not be a direct connection between that author and that reviewer that got the review(s) removed.


Slightly less civil discussion on Twitter (no link) because, you know, authors NEED those reviews and so it's OKAY to interact with readers and ENCOURAGE them to leave reviews, just like it's OKAY to swap reviews with other writers who are FRIENDS.

Spring Fling Book Swap - OPEN



The Spring Fling Book Swap is open! 

Spring is a time of love and colors and renewal and all kinds of cool things. So this swap should be about bright, romance, fun, silly. Make-overs and insta-love and tea on the veranda. (Okay, I'm a Southern girl, so cut me some slack. I almost said Mint Juleps.) 

Here are the must haves:
1. Books, duh. In good condition. Used is fine. Some of us even love those beat-up, well worn hardbound old type books. So you're pretty free here.

2. Something whimsical. A scarf with a pretty print. A picture of a unicorn. A cabochon or a cool bracelet. Have fun with this.

3. Something bright. Pretty self explanatory. Can be anything, just keep your partner's taste in mind.

4. A fun spring snack. I totally love Milano cookies.

5. A surprise. Whatever you want to give your partner. A total off-the-cuff gift you think they may like, but try to keep with the theme. 

And the fine print:

Budget is $20.Deadline for signing up ends March 25th. That's 10 days! Deadline for mailing is April 10th. If you have any questions, I'm totally here for you guys. If you need an extension, as always, just ask. As always, this is anonymous. No spoilers. No peeking. 


Once you ship your box, please remember to message or email me with your tracking number. Now go have fun, my little spring fairies!

Official WINTER CHILLS 2017 Book Swap: Open


What's this? What's this? There's reading everywhere! What's this? There's pages in the air!

Welcome to the official Winter Chills book swap! The super, duper Halloween-themed, horror-filled winter book swap for all us that just can't let go of October. 

Here are the official guidelines! Budget is $20, per the usual. Sign-ups are open from November 2nd to November 21st. Packages will be due to ship by December 5th. I hope that's enough time for everyone. If not, just hit me up and we can work out something. We're all friends here, and with it being the (numerous) holidays, we all understand being stretched a little thin. Delays can be made, budgets can be changed. I just want you guys to have a great time!

What to include:

1. Books, of course. However many you want, as long as they are spooky/creepy/horror or whatever else your buddy wants.

2. A treat. Something yummy to eat or drink. 

3. Something to wear. Socks, pins, a hat, anything. Make it fun!

4. Something that smells nice. 

5. A note, of course. Talk to your partner about why you gave what you gave.


As always, bargain hunt. Target Dollar Spot, Hollar app, Dollar Tree. Used books are fine as long as they are in decent shape. We haven't ever run into a bad giver yet, so let's try to keep it up! :) Also, since some of us don't celebrate Christmas, let's be conscious of that when picking items. That's why this is not a "Christmas" swap, but a "winter" one. Let's try to keep this rather secular and just enjoy the gift of books!

Emails with partners will be sent out on November 22nd. Shipping form will be posted up then, too, so I can track who gets what. 

I love you guys! Let's get this thing rolling! 

I can't believe my eyes! What's this?!
