Another huge thank you to everyone who has shared, RT or re-posted the blog, and especially to those who have written versions of it on their own blog. There has been so much sharing activity that to thank and comment on all individually would take me hours and hours of each day that I don't have, so please take this as an official thank you, and you're on my RT list. :) If I don't RT you, give me a nudge!
*Please note: #AugustReviews is NOT about own book promotion.
All hashtags suffer 'hashtag abuse', but I don't want this idea to get lost under yet another mountain of 'buy my book' tweets, which can only be counterproductive, as it will put off any genuine readers who might join in.
Many have already reviewed, so a big thank you to all who have joined in, and please see the list below.
Please do not tweet blog review links to the hashtag.
- The purpose of this initiative is to get more readers posting reviews on Amazon. If you post blog links, it might put new reviewers off and lead them to think you need a blog to review.
- It causes more work for me, as I have to go and seek out your review on Amazon!
I would LOVE to see some reviews from readers who haven't written one before ~ so if any of you are reading this, please don't be shy! If you're not sure what to put, just have a look at the ones below, which should give you a few pointers, or read this terrific post on With Love for Books with some great one liners: it's HERE.
and welcome to the first...

Thanks more than I can say for everyone's support in this, and keep them coming! I may not be as active on social media as I would like at the moment because of some bloody annoying back problems, so I'm sorry if I don't thank you personally, but am giving #AugustReviews top priority.
