  1. Hi Melanie,

    I found your blog while looking for a book reviewer but I have one very important question first. You enjoy dancing in elevators? I assume there is a story behind that and I gotta know what it is.

    Anyway, after looking through your review guidelines and reviews I don’t “think” my book is your cup of tea but I had to know what was up with the dancing thing. As a side note I once got stuck dancing for twenty minutes between my bedroom and the living-room because of cool groove in my head. 🙂


    • Hahaha I love when that happens! Sometimes you feel the beat, sometimes the beat feels you 🙂

      No specific story but I took dance lessons years ago and started dancing everywhere – at work, waiting in line, elevators etc. The elevators one stuck with me 😉

      Well hey why don’t you email me anyway and I’ll check it out? My email’s coveredinbooks@gmail.com

      • Hi Melanie,

        I’ll do that. I need all the reviews I can get. It will be another two months before I have finished polishing it and get it out on Amazon and Nook but I’ll holler at you then and see if you’re still up for it.

        In the mean time, I hope you had a wonderful QuanzaHanaChristWinterSolstice and a happy New year!:)
