Thanks so much for visiting TBR Insider.
If you have landed here, you might be wanting to know a bit more about me and maybe even why I started TBR Insider.
My name is Samantha and several years ago I decided to join this fantastic romance community by writing reviews for books that I loved and sharing them on my Facebook profile. At the time I didn’t really know what a blogger was until I connected online with a few ladies who suggested that I start a blog.
Hence, Redhot Romance was born. For a long time all I did was review books and share information about upcoming releases.
But after a while I was hankering for a way to share MORE about romance books with readers. I love experimenting in different ways to engage readers and do something a bit different than what was currently out there – so I launched the Redhot Romance ezine in August 2015. The ezine shared excerpts, new releases, pre-orders, kindle unlimited titles and author interviews with readers. This was free to authors to participate.
I continued to produce this magazine until December 2016, when I decided to retire the ezine.
During this time, I continued to blog but was getting frustrated with the time it was taking for me to review all the emails that came into my inbox from different pr/promo companies, authors, publicists and PA’s. So I set on a search to see if someone out there was collating all this information in one easily accessible place for me to review.
As you can guess, I came up empty handed and continued to be frustrated.
The more I thought about it, the more I knew I could make this work.
But of course, I needed more feedback. So I setup an email address and sent some emails to bloggers to test the concept. Imagine my surprise when the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. I could not believe when my mailing list when to hundreds in a matter of weeks.
So I decided to find out if authors and pr/promo companies would be interested in collaborating to bring this information easily to bloggers. When again I was swamped with such positivity for the idea I was shocked.
From that moment, TBR Insider was born in the same format that I loved with my Redhot Romance ezine.
My passion and desire lies in the notion of making everyone’s life easier and wanting to see every person in this community be successful – be blogger or author.
