What's Happening To Diverse Reader in 2019
Before anyone panics, no we are not closing our doors. I have been getting asked that a lot lately but no we aren't shutting down. However, there are some changes coming.
First, and likely the biggest is I (Meredith) will be stepping down from reviewing on the blog. It takes a lot of time to construct a week's worth of posts and just my putting it all together, organizing, arc distribution, and communications it's a lot of hours. I was running out of time and unable to commit to personally reviewing. Add to that my own writing, being a mom, and other commitments I've taken on, there was no energy left at the end of the day. So as of January 1, 2019 I won't be posting reviews.
Erin, Morningstar, Jenn, Michael, Truus, and Racheal will be AND we have taken on a new reviewer we are so excited about, Sammy Goode. My leaving from reviewing left an opening and I am thrilled to have her on board!
Also, the blog will be doing a lot of focusing on more than the review aspect. Readers are asking to get to know authors more and through 2019 we are going to have lots of guest posts, spotlights, and insights into the grand masters behind their books.
I, along with the rest of us, look forward to a wonderful 2019. And don't forget to watch for the TOP PICKS of 2018 coming in January as well.
Thank you all <3 Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.
