RED HEADED BOOK LOVER

About Me

About Me

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting my website Red Headed Book Lover! You probably found yourself here because you would like to know more about the ‘Red Headed Book Lover,’ and if you do then you are in the right place! My name is Aimee, and I created Red Headed Book Lover so that I could share reviews for books I have loved with fellow book lovers as well as help authors showcase their work. 

Creating Red Headed Book Lover was the greatest decision I have ever made because along the way I have met so many book lovers as well as worked with authors all over the world which has been such a wonderful experience! I adore meeting book lovers and authors and love learning more about both and so I, in turn, am going to share more about me so you can get to know me better! However, I will try not to bore you with the details of my life so I will try to keep this short and sweet.

All you really need to know about me is that my name is Aimee, I am book obsessed, I am married to the most incredible, perfect (and handsome!) man who is a United States Marine. I could not be more proud of my husband and his service, and I am 100% a proud and supportive military wife! I am a mother too and I love my family more than anything in the world.

My interests, of course, include reading and reviewing… lots of it! Ever since I was a young girl I have been book obsessed and whenever I have the chance to, I pick up a book and get lost in it! As well as loving to read and review, I also adore learning, whether it is about history, science and just about anything that fascinates me. I also am a huge tv/movie buff and love binge-watching tv shows! Some of my favorites have to be Game of Thrones (yesss I have read the books and LOVED them!), Black Mirror, Better Call Saul and countless more! However most of all my biggest passion and favorite thing to do of all is to spend time with my beautiful family and I never take a day for granted. 

Now that is a little about me! However if you want to chat or just want to know more about me! Then you can always follow my private Instagram account which is @redheadedbookloverblog . I adore meeting fellow book lovers as well as meeting authors so come bye and say hi! I would love to hear from you. 

For a long time I have been asked questions by readers as well as authors, and so I have created a list below which answers the most frequently asked questions so here are my answers book lovers and authors!

Why are all of your reviews so positive?!

This is a question I get asked frequently and one I actually love to answer. As I am sure you can tell by now I am a very positive person and hate negativity. That is why I have chosen only to post reviews of books I genuinely love and have given four of five stars too. I, of course, have read many books (probably too many!) that are not so great; however, I do not see the point in me reviewing the book. I do not think it is necessary as I would have to spend time writing a review, editing it, posting it and so on and the review would just consist of why I disliked the book. I personally do not feel that this is wise, but it is also not kind to the author. Authors work really hard to ensure they produce a great book and sometimes they won’t succeed; however, I do not feel their name should be trashed for this. I do believe in private, constructive criticism if asked for however; I do not believe in sharing negative reviews online. Besides! I like to keep my website a happy, optimistic and lively place where book lovers can unite, so only positivity is allowed!

Will you review my book?

This is a question I get asked a lot and the short answer is yes, if I feel that I would enjoy and love your book and other readers will too then I would love to review it. Reading is my passion, and I love the art of literature and the written word, and I love reviewing just as much as I loved reading. That is why I adore reviewing books for authors, whether the author is self-published or traditionally published.

On my website, I have a strong focus on making sure that self-published novels are reviewed, and that is why 98% of my reviews are for self-published books. I truly respect self-published authors and think that many indie authors are incredible however many big-name publishers will not give them a chance which makes me sad. This is actually one of the many reasons why I created Red Headed Book Lover so that I could share indie books with readers as many traditional forms of media/advertising do not give indie authors the opportunity. So if you are an indie author or a published author, I would love to hear from you and learn more about your book, so please email me on one of the many contact forms on my page as I would love to hear from you!

My About Me page is dedicated mostly to me on a personal level however if you are interested in a review, please do visit my services page here: Services, as well as my Testimonials page here: Testimonials so you can learn more about what I do. 

Disclaimer* All services on my website are paid for; my website is a paid reviewing service and more information about this can be found on my Services page as well as my Terms of Service page which are both linked.

Who designed your website?

Surprisingly this is a frequently asked question, and I always love sharing who did design my website as his work is excellent! I should mention at this point that I am in no way an affiliate of this web developer/designer, I received no free work, have no affiliate ties and have not been told to share this information, I just genuinely love his website design.

My website designer is Mike at MB-Sites, and he builds customized websites for users of WordPress. What I love about Mike’s service is that he listens to everything you would like, even down to the most delicate details and provides exactly what you want/envisioned. I confess book lovers that I messaged poor Mike so many times about little things I would like, and he has done everything I wanted and was patient along the way which is professional and a service I am happy to pay for. If you are interested in finding a web designer/developer then his website is: MB-Sites and his email is: info@mb-sites.com. Just to clarify again book lovers and authors these are not affiliate links and I have no marketing affiliation with MB-Sites; just love the service!

Final Thoughts

There you have it book lovers, some of my most frequently asked questions! There are many more common questions however I feel that this page is already very long so do not want to bore you book lovers and authors for much longer!

Thank you once again for stopping by my website and reading! I truly do appreciate it. If you would like to get in touch, please do as I would love to hear from you, I love meeting new people and would love to meet you lovely readers and authors here, or on my Instagram @redheadedbookloverblog so I look forward to hearing from some of you! Thank you again for stopping by!

Hi Aimee, where is your contact form?:) I meant to write you about my book, Poets, Artists, Lovers: A Novel. I think you may like it. Could you take a look at it (here: https://www.amazon.com/Poets-Artists-Lovers-Mira-Tudor-ebook/dp/B074L8W7XS/) to see if you’d be interested to review it? Thank you!

Have you heard of a little book called The Night Rainbow by Claire King? The entire book is written from the perspective of a five year old girl and rather unique. To view the world with the eyes of a child…

Thank you for choosing to follow one of my blogs. I do hope you enjoy future posts and happy reading! I must confess, books are a serious addiction for me. 🙂

Léa

Thank you. I have added your recommendations to my own, endless, TBR list…

Léa

I do hope you enjoy the book and while I have not heard of Room, sounds a bit scary, for some reason Not Thomas sounds a bit familiar. Thank you.

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?

I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Thank you for checking out my blog. I’m glad you found something helpful! I love that you are a stay at home mom and that your hubby is willing to take care of you all. I loved being at home with my kids!

Laura Bennet

I believe you have the hardest, best and most underappreciated and paid job in the world! There is nothing more important than raising little people into wonderful big people.

I have 7 all together. I raised my 4 who are 35, 34, 31 and almost 30. When I met my husband 9 years ago, I gladly took on his three as my own since their mum had passed away. They are 22, 17 and almost 15. The oldest 4 have given us 9 grandchildren too who range in age of 15 – just turned 1. It’s been challenging and wonderful! Btw – I think I would have loved the 1950’s. lol I was born in 1960 so came into the “new revolution” of feminism, banning God in school and… Read more »

Hi Aimee,
Thank you for following my blog… and by the way, it’s really a pleasure reading your posts. In my case, I’ve just begun to write some reviews about latest readings on my website, even if it was born as a personal, professional page. I wish you a very good day, Elisabeth

I didn’t know they had bearded marines. Kudos to your husband from an avowed fashion anarchist! (If you google “letter from a fashion anarchist,” my blog is the top result.) 🙂 Gary
