HELP! When Should I Cross-Post My Review Poll

Authors, Publishers Tour Companies & Bloggers

Help me out, please!

I love to read and review books and have a simple question.

I have always cross-posted my reviews after they were published on my blog, until recently.

I love to be the first person to review a book, but the main reason I have started doing it is because I can do it at my leisure.

I used to scramble to get them posted to Amazon and Goodreads the day the review was published on my blog. Then I found myself losing track and sometimes forgetting about it and not posting for days or longer.

When should I post my review?

.

I post to Amazon, Goodreads, Library Shelf, Shelfari and B & N as soon as the review is scheduled on my blog.

After publishing the review on my blog, I then add it to Booklikes, Tumbler and Literary Addict.

When do you post your review?

I would love to hear your thoughts. Please share them here, so everyone can benefit.

Thanks for your time.

Blood Warrior (The Alexa Montgomery Saga, #1)The Alexa Montgomery Saga

Blood Warrior:

When her home is attacked by murderous vampires, 17-year-old Alexa is forced to leave her mother for dead in order to save her sister. She soon learns that she is the last known member of an elite race of supernatural Warriors, and is thrust into a world full of vampires and werewolves who all seem to regard her as some sort of savior. Meanwhile, Alexa battles a monster within herself that seeks to gain control; a monster that seeks blood.

The hidden city she finds herself in appears perfect, but Alexa’s instincts tell her that all is not right within its walls. When she is asked to attend a school of fighters, whose exams consist of gladiator-style competitions, she must decide who she can trust among the smiling faces. And, when she meets Kayden, a vampire she feels undeniably drawn to, she must decide if she can trust herself.

Half Black Soul:

In the past few weeks Alexa Montgomery has had her entire world flipped upside down. She’s gone from living a semi-normal teenage life to a life full of vampires and werewolves who all expect her to deliver them from the control of an evil dictator.

Alexa is the last of her kind; a Sun Warrior, and now she has left the safety of Two Rivers to search for her mother, but she’s left her sister behind to do so, and Nelly is the one person that she was told that she must always protect. Kayden, a vampire who is Alexa’s other half, has followed her on her journey. But, secrets are about to come out, relationships will break and danger lies just up ahead. Will Alexa be able to get through all of this and make it out alive? And, will she be able to protect Nelly from danger when she is so far away?

JoeOther books by H.D. Gordon

Joe:

From the author of the Alexa Montgomery Saga, comes a book that will take you into the mind of a genuine psychopath, the lives of six ordinary people, and the world of a very special girl named Joe.

Joe is seemingly an ordinary college student. She works, studies and reads. But in between these activities Joe has a gift that promises to add a dose of color to her life at any given moment. Joe sees things before they happen. Bad things, and the worst thing she has ever faced is just around the corner. Someone is planning a massacre at the college university that Joe attends, and the only person with a hope of stopping the psychopath is her.

Oh, the beauty of foresight. More like a curse. Joe has four days to figure out the mystery, make plans to take down the psycho, and save the lives of people. People like you and me. Ordinary people.

Stay tuned for my upcoming Review

Praise for this Title

was glued to this book, all the way to the very climatic end.

Literary Vixen

I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspenseful thrillers with a touch of the paranormal on the side.

A Goddess of Literature

Anyway, this story is told from the POV of JOE, and a third person POV of several more characters.
