My Online Presence
This introductory post evolves continuously, especially the book review list. You might want to check back periodically.
The Monthly Book Review List is at the bottom of this post.
Please scroll down below the posts to hit the Follow Kimber Li Button! You can also subscribe to this blog by eMail.
A Newsletter and Subscribe button for it is still forthcoming. Working on it right now, in fact.
You can find links to my books, writers’ resources, and such at the top of this blog.
Kimber Li bandaged her fingers and pounded out her first novel on a manual typewriter when she was eleven years old. Also baby-crazy, she grew up and graduated from nanny school. She moved to Alaska, bagged a man, and had a bunch of kids, all of whom are taller than her now. She makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with this massive brood plus two spoiled rotten cats and a couple of chickens who are nothing but freeloading slackers.
I’ve been blogging for over a decade, although this one’s fairly new. I fell into it by posting about books I liked. Some authors noticed and I was, like, “I’m a book reviewer? So I’m a book reviewer. Cool!” I started doing it on purpose.
My first novel was ePublished in 2010 and I received my rights back to it a few years later. I just revised and independently published it last January. And I’m not working on doing the same thing with the second book in the series. Hit the links in the top of the Page menu to learn more about that.
As of October 1st, I’m promoting and reviewing Fantasy, mostly Young Adult and fairytale retellings. I’m still reviewing Historicals. In my ambition to become a more professional blogger, I’ve been using this time since my relaunch in August to learn what my blog buds really want to read. I’ve been tweaking this blog accordingly. I’ll be upgrading as I can afford it.
I come from a multi-generational Trekkie family. Some visitors seem to enjoy my Star Trek posts, so I’ll be blogging about that on Saturdays. The new series, Star Trek Picard, is set to debut on January 23rd, which is a Thursday. That gives me Friday to digest the story and I can, hopefully, write something worth reading by Saturday morning. Also, Star Trek Discovery continues. I’ve fallen behind on that one. Maybe I’ll do a Twitter Hashtag review as I catch me up. I’m doing that for the new series right now. If you want to Follow, it’s
The summer months will be all about the Cowboy Baby Homestead, which covers great adventures and backyard farming. I’ll probably be back into Western Romance and other contemporary fiction.
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays are for book events. Fridays are for reviews.
Tuesdays feature a more substantial post with helpful resources for readers and writers and opinion.
And Sundays I try to encourage you with Coffee or Tea, & Follow Me posts, which frequently involve great books too.
This is one reason my blog is simply titled Kimber Li. The other reason is that Kimber Li is my authorly pen name.
Posts may shuffle around a little, such as when I post a book tour for another blogger and must abide by her schedule.
I’ll post seasonally to update you on what I’ve learned and preview my plans for the next two or three months. Sometimes I stumble on really great resources for other authors and bloggers.
My newsletter will go out once a month, once it’s up and running!
I plan to monetize this blog with a lot more affiliates around November 1st. I’ll be sure to let you know when this happens.
Meantime, kick back and relax, if you have time.
The Monthly Book Review List
I choose an Older Release, a New Release from a Major Publisher, an Indie Pub or Very Small Press, and a Star Wars novel each month. Read My Review Strategy if you want to know why. Plus, I’ll have Wild Cards for when I have extra time. Recommendations appreciated.
