This time the extended delay is my fault (and bloggers - I had it set to post on Wednesday - but it didn't!). Bri sent me parts 3 (this one has PRIZES!) and 4 and so I'll post Part 4 in a couple days.

Oh…wow dear readers it would seem I’m late yet again. [and I made it later - sorry!] My apologies. However, my excuse is most valid. I’ve recently been inducted into the the Women’s Speaking Association. It’s a truly wonderful accomplishment but in order to capitalize on it I had to do a lot!! But I digress. [Congrats Bri!!! I hope the Global Women's Summit goes well (or went well - you said June, but not the date :)]
So here is the 3rd installment of the power you amazing readers have. If you missed Part I or Part II well they are highlighted for a reason hun. ;)
Today I’m going to show you the suggested formatting for a review. There is no set in stone too short, too long, or in between for a review. This is just the way I personally have found works best.
• Hero Name
• Heroine Name
• Author’s Name
• Climax: What part of the story really, really seemed the most dramatic?
• Favorite part: That part looking back that you just adored.
• Worst part: The part where you didn’t want to keep reading but had to know what happened.
• Ending: You don’t have to give a spoiler…just express if you were satisfied.
• Star Rating: How many stars would you give it?
I’d suggest that when you begin to read a book that you use a piece of post it or paper as the book mark and write these points down. Personally, I had cards made and I hand them out at events or as swag.
In fact I’ll send a set to two lucky commenter’s. All they need to do is leave their name and email address below. I’ll randomly pick two and contact you to get your mailing address.
Tune in next week [in a couple days] when I explain what tagging is. Thanks for having me on Maria. You are a truly exceptional hostess. [Awwwwww *blushing*]
