Happy New Year!

Photobucket

Happy New Year everybody! I know I’ve been M.I.A. over the last few weeks, but I’ll be getting back on track again.

I hope everyone has had happy holidays. I did, though I’ve stayed pretty busy.

Now the new year is finally here and with it will come a few new things on Not-Really-Southern Vamp Chick.

One thing I’d like to do is to start featuring some other bloggers. My Win on Wednesday post seems to help you all find a few new blogs, but I’d like to show some love to the new bloggers out there, or the older bloggers out there that haven’t gotten as much exposure as they would like to. I’ve seen some really cool blogs over the past year, but sometimes forget to follow and lose track of them, so if you are interested in being one of these blogs, then please sign-up HERE! I just ask that you be mostly book related and that the majority of your books be urban fantasy, paranormal romance, horror, etc. Whether they are young adult or adult does not matter to me though.

Another thing I’m going to start is featuring local haunted places, hopefully around the world. For this, I need your help. Do you have a place near you that you think would be perfect for this? Would you like to share it with us in your very own post on here? Then please go HERE and fill out the form.

Last thing for today. As is I’m sure obvious to everyone. I needed a break, because I was doing a bit too much for a while there. So what I want to do is to start getting more guest reviewers on here. I usually have some for events and such, but that’s it. I love working with other bloggers though, and think this would be a great way to get to work more w/ them and keep the blog active for you all without overworking myself quite so much. If you are interested in writing a guest review, please fill out this form.

Acceptance for each will depend upon how many people want to participate. I hope I have some interest in all of them. This could be so much fun. If you all have more ideas feel free to let me know or shoot me an email! :)

Once again, Happy New Year!
