Welcome to the Feature & Follow

How does this work? The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.

Our Feature is author, Shiloh Walker

When did you start blogging? December 2006!  I had to look at my archives… and I started it mostly as a writing exercise

What is your favorite part of  blogging? Well, I rarely run out of things to say.  Having another outlet is a good thing.

What type of books do you mainly blog about? Books.  My books. Other books I like.  Weird stuff.  Movies.  Anything that catches my interest.  And sometimes I rant.

What is your favorite book(s)? I’m glad you put that (s) on there… The Stardoc books by SL Viehl, the Kate Daniels books by Ilona Andrews, the Downside books by Stacia Kane, and the In Death books by JD Robb.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging? Like I said, I started blogging mainly as an exercise…I got the idea from Lynn Viehl/SL Viehl who I teasingly call my guru, and we’ve struck up a friendship.  As she is a writer I admire so much and that probably came about mostly thru blogs (mine and hers), I’d probably have to say that.

This weeks Question:

Q: What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre, or is it a certain type of book?

Love Triangles. I actually like the anxiety that love triangles add to a story. I like them when they are done right and done over-the-top. But – a good love triangle is hard to wrap-up for me. Usually I think death is the best possible out-come. But, I’m macabre like that.
