Accomplishments, Acknowledgments and Credentials

I am, by no means, a professional. I don't do my reviews for money, nor do I do it for a job. But I am still very devoted to my blog and reviews, and therefore am ecstatic when I find myself quoted, either in print or online.

Here is a list (which I shall update as needed) of my accomplishments, as it applies to reviewing.


Reviews on Other Sites:



A NOR Reviewer Since 2009; Over 60 Books and Counting!



For going on 5 years now, I have been an official reviewer for the company Night Owl Reviews. I have reviewed dozens of books for this site (from YA to historical romance to erotica). all under my username TheBookQueen.




Avon Addicts:



I was lucky enough to be a part of the Avon Addicts group in 2012, Avon Squared. I received fun packages of goodies, books, and swag every month, had a blast sharing the Avon love, and reviewed some great books! While I am no longer an AA, I still fondly remember my time in the group. Keep on eye out on their page -- they accept applications for new Addicts every 6 months!





I've Been Quoted!
  • My ARC review for Evermore, which I reviewed through LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program, has been published in the sequel, Blue Moon.
    • "Get ready for a wild ride that is filled with twisting paths and mystery, love and fantasy...The writing style, story, and characters are a bit like Meyer's and Marr's popular books, but written with a new twist and voice. And after reading the book, you too will probably want your own Damen, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice."
      • The Book Queen (5 Stars)
        • It has also been published in other books in this series (same quote).
  • My NOR review for Unknown appears in the front of Unbroken.
    • "A light fantasy novel with just a hint of smoldering romance: perfect for anyone who wants something new instead of the same old paranormal themes."
      • Night Owl Reviews
        • Since all of my reviews for NOR automatically become property of the company, any reference to a review shows up under the company name. However, on the actual review posted on NOR (view it here), it clearly states who reviews it (TheBookQueen).
  • My NOR review for Unseen also appears in Unbroken, both on the first "Praise for the Novels" page and on the back cover.
    • "Action, suspense and fantasy--all combined perfectly and shaken with a little romance to round out the flavor. It seems that you can't go wrong with picking up one of Ms. Caine's books."
      • Night Owl Reviews (Top Pick)
        • Since all of my reviews for NOR automatically become property of the company, any reference to it shows up under the company name. However, on the actual review posted on NOR (view it here), it clearly states who reviews it (TheBookQueen).
  • My NOR review for Master of Smoke appears in Master of Darkness, both on the first "Praise for the Mageverse novels" and the back cover.
    • "If you enjoy a paranormal series with a healthy does of erotica, enough wit to lighten the mood, battles of good vs. evil, and a new twist on an old story line, then what are you waiting for? Enter the world of Mageverse--I promise, once you get in, you won't want to go back!"
    • "Enter the world of Mageverse--I promise, once you get in, you won't want to go back!"
      • Night Owl Reviews
        • Since all of my reviews for NOR automatically become property of the company, any reference to it shows up under the company name. However, on the actual review posted on NOR (view it here), it clearly states who reviews it (TheBookQueen).
  • My ARC review for Forged in Dreams and Magick appears in the e-book and print copy of the book (as well as on the Amazon book page). The same quote is also in the sequel novella, Bound in Wish and Mistletoe.
    • "Bastion's debut is pure perfection, a combination of romance, magic, emotion, adventure and surprising twists and turns. This is a truly unique romance that should not be missed!"

~*~*~*~

I'm still very surprised (and thrilled) that I've been "published" like this. And I know that I am extremely lucky to have had it happen this many times! I'm sure that there might very well be other books that I've had my reviews quoted in, but have not found yet, so I will update this page as often as I can.

And if you happen to see one of my reviews in a book or on a website somewhere (and I don't have it listed above), please feel free to contact me--I probably haven't seen it yet! :) Thanks!



Enjoy!



Until Next Time,
