Starting a post about what your blog is all
about reminds me of starting a paper in high school. Where to begin without
dragging it out? Diverse Reader is blog that grew into itself. 

I wanted a
platform where I could talk about books. So on January 9, 2014 I started
Diverse Reader. Since then it’s grown exponentially. For the first year it was
just me, alone. Writing promos, blog posts. I didn’t even post every day. 

In
the last year alone I went from getting 200 hits a day to well over 1000. I
have taken on reviewers Erin and Morningstar. We work with publishing houses
like Dreamspinner Press, and Pride Publishing. Indie Authors hold a place in my
heart so I always work to make sure I get them a spotlight.

Tell me your favourite book of 2016. Leave a comment below and enter a giveaway for a $10 Dreamspinner Press Card. I'll pick a winner on Monday, 22nd August at 6pm GMT.

My blog is a Promotion blog. We do reviews,
yes.

Last month Random Reviews started and that along with Release Day Reviews
has a giveaway. All my promotions, if there is a review, MUST have a giveaway.
Call it what you will I have found statistically speaking if you add a giveaway
the draw grows by 75%. That’s awesome exposure for any author. And that brings
me to WHY I do it. Authors. Readers. My love for books. Plain and simple.

The majority of people who visit Diverse
Reader are LGBT, Gay romance mostly. Heterosexual books aren’t turned away but
95% of my readers are part of the LGBT community. Like I said I get a large
volume a day some days over 5000 others 1000. It depends on the post.
It’s hard to pick favorite books I’ve read
because there’s so many but I will pick a few I read this year that I love.  

Chasing the Dream by Andrew Grey is by far my favourite book of his to date (http://diversereader.blogspot.com/2016/07/release-day-review-chasing-dream-by.html

Another is AJ Rose’s Reaping Fate http://diversereader.blogspot.com/2016/05/release-day-post-reaping-fate-by-aj.html
Book one Reaping Havoc was marvellous too and this series of hers is my favorite
by her.

I so much want to go on and on about books
I love but truth is I don’t think there’s enough space to http://diversereader.blogspot.com/
and look at all the posts.

I have Book of the Week, Random Reviews, Promo
posts, Random Five, Top Reads… It goes on and on. With Morningstar and Erin’s
help I push out more advertising than ever for authors. Diverse Reader has
loyal readers that make me smile and I love when I can help them discover new
authors.

do it. Authors are
magicians and they come in all varieties.

I adore RJ Scott, Santino Hassell,
Megan Erickson, Kate Aaron, Felice Stevens, Kade Boehme, and trillion others. I
can pick a book for every author I’ve read and tell you a favorite. All you
have to do it go to Diverse Reader
