Tome Tender Book Blog’s #BookReview of #Texas comedy/drama The Acorn Stories and More. @DiiBylo

Tome Tender is a book blog that features “Book Reviews, Author Interviews, Giveaways, Fabulous Covers and Other Book Related Thoughts!” New reviews appear frequently, listed under the author’s name and promoted on DiiBylo’s twitter account. Information about book review requests also appears on the blog.

An excerpt from the review of The Acorn Stories follows.

“Welcome to Acorn, Texas, a small town probably like ANY town, but instead of driving past it, Duane Simolke is going to let us in on what goes on behind closed doors. It may take a village to raise a child, but that same village could also drive the poor kid crazy!”

Featured #BookBlog: LEONARD TILLERMAN: Author, Book Blogger, Book Reviewer @mywritersnook

Leonard Tillerman, a member of The Indie View, writes in Toronto, Ontario. His blog entries includes some of the writing tips Leonard has gathered from his fellow authors and his own writing experiences. He chooses books to review after the writer joins his mailing list and requests a review. Since he buys the books himself and doesn't take any payment from the author, the reader can expect an unbiased review.

I realize that many reviewers can only supply a paragraph or two and that longer reviews tend to include spoilers. However, his review of my book The Acorn Stories goes into a lot of depth about the characters, structure, themes, and more, all without giving away any surprises. I've noticed the same about his other reviews. Readers looking for a good read or writers hoping for exposure should visit
