Talk of the Town ~ the place for bookish people to be

Welcome to the weekly Talk of the Town linky which I co-host with Heidi from Cosmochicklitan.

If you haven’t joined in with us before:

What is Talk of the Town?

A place for bloggers and authors to link up their bookish posts.

What post can you link up on Talk of the Town?

It does have to be book related but doesn’t have to be a review – it can be anything you would like to share with others. It could be a Q&A, guest post, book news, book event, blogging tips, giveaway, top 5 books you’ve read, your weekly/monthly roundup or even something you’ve made from instructions within the pages of a book! As long as it is book related, go for it. The post you choose can be something you’re really proud of, has a message that you think others will benefit from or a book you think deserves to be noticed. Your post doesn’t have to be recent either. It can be from your archives. And you DON’T have to join in every week.

Authors, you blog too! and if you would like to join in you’re very welcome. I would request that you don’t use the linky as only promotion though. Links to your books that you have in your posts are fine. I’m thinking here of the fabulous posts I read on writing tips or your inspiration etc and I know some of you join in round robins where you have a question to answer.

There is no cost for you to link up with Talk of the Town.  Link up to find new blog readers and increase traffic to your blog/website.

Don’t know how a linky works? Follow my walkthrough – it’s easier than you think!

The link is open now until Tuesday evening.

Please feel free to add the badge to the post you’re sharing. Alternatively, please link back to Talk of the Town on your post.

It’s hard to believe we’ve been back to school for 3 weeks – in some ways it feels as if the summer holidays didn’t happen.  Some of our children are still settling into a new routine after the freedom of the holidays but as an adult it can be hard to get back into that rhythm too (hands up, early mornings? HATE them with a passion).

Heidi and I love the variety of posts you’re linking.  Thank you for continuing to share on Talk of the Town.
