Hi, it’s Tori. Once upon a time, I opened a twitter account. I was a business owner and had learned it was a good advertising medium. After being online for a while, I found I wanted more interaction so ventured into twitter romancelandia and found my peoples. I stumbled upon Mandi while discussing books and a love affair was born. At least on my end. I decided right then and there she was going to be my new best friend. I just had to convince her. When she put out a call for another reviewer, I was ecstatic. “It’s a sign!” I told my husband. He said to stop being a creeper (killjoy). I begged, cajoled, bribed, whined…and became a part of Smexy Books.
That was almost 10 years ago. It seems like just yesterday I posted my first review and was amazed anyone even cared much less read it. What started out as a way to share my love of reading with similar minded people became so much more as I fell in love with my fellow readers, reviewers, and authors. Throughout the years, I have been blessed to have shared so many firsts with my Smexy ladies and this community. Births, marriages, careers, etc…I have laughed and cried with these women and my life will truly never be the same. And for that I am grateful
But my time at Smexy Books has come to an end. My life is taking me down a different path and sadly, that path is leading me away from blogging. I’m not disappearing though!! I will still read and review occasionally but no longer on a full-time basis. And of course, they will have to drag me off twitter kicking and screaming so no reprieve there for you all.
So farewell mes amies. Thank you for all the laughs, tears, and drinks. Thank you for your friendships, your advice, your shoulders, and your wonderful stories. Thank you for making me stronger and showing me the true meaning of “girl power.”
I’ll see you soon on the other side.
