Help! Reviewers Wanted!person reading stacks of books

Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words blog Badge

We’re heading towards the end of July and its become apparent that Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words needs to enlarge its family of reviewers.  We have more books and offers of books to review than we can handle to our satisfaction. Soooooo….if you love to read and write, if you love to read and want/already write reviews of your own,  how about joining our family of reviewers?

We are a low pressure, fun group of various ages, races, and genders who love to read, talk, think about books of LGBTQIA fiction and non-fiction.  Contribute frequently or infrequently according to your personal schedule. We’re flexible.  We supply the books, you supply the reviews (using our format and rating system).  Sound like something you might want to be a part of?  Contact me at and let’s talk.

Oh, and if you know of any LGBTQIA YA age readers who might want to read and review for us?  Check out yesterday’s Call for YA Reviewers!  I look forward to hearing from you.

Finally a big hi to everyone finishing up at Rainbow Con this weekend.  I wish I could have been there! *Waves*  As well as a shout out to J. Scott Coatsworth and the group at!  If you love LGBT scifi, fantasy or paranormal books and stories, this is a group you will love.  What a time they all must have had at Rainbow Con, I’m so jealous!

~ Melanie , Chief Reviewer, Cook, Keeper of all Things Sesquipedalian, and editor! [note: that word will appear in a review next week. Find it and let me know where!]
