What is life like for a reviewer? What does it mean to be a book reviewer? How does book blogging impact their lives?… These questions tell a reviewer’s side of the story, and that is a side we hardly get to hear (compared to authors, that is). To bring a balance and to ask these and many more questions of book reviewers, we started the weekly interview series – Life as a Book Blogger.
Debbie, otherwise known as JB Johnston of Brook Cottage Books wants to be a writer someday but while she’s waiting to fulfil that dream she reviews and promotes books on her blog. When not reading and reviewing Debbie works closely with publishers and other book sites, such as Lovereading.co.uk where she is on the review panel and is a reviewer with loveahappending.com lifestyle magazine. She also coordinates and runs virtual book tours and contributes to the ‘Books Rock’ show on Siren FM radio hosted by author Nicky Wells. She was shortlisted for Romance Blogger of the Year at the Festival of Romance in 2013.
