What Authors Have to Say To Kristi!

"When I worked in teen services at the library, I visited Kristi’s blog nearly every day to check out her latest reviews, author interviews and to get news on new and upcoming books. I would always send our teen patrons to her site when they asked me about book recommendations. Now that I’m a full time author, I love reading Kristi’s blog for all the same reasons but also because she often provides added insight into publishing industry. And of course, as always, I love reading her fantastic reviews!" --Kelly Creagh, Author of Nevermore

"Kristi was one of the very first bloggers to have Oh. My. Gods. on her reading radar. She posted one of my first reviews and one of my first guest blogs. She has been with me every step of my publishing journey so far and I can't wait to see where the path takes us next. Happy anniversary, Kristi!" -- Terry Lynn Childs, Author of Oh. My Gods.

"Kristi is an incredible, positive presence in the blogging community. Her reviews and informative posts educate bloggers and book-lovers alike. Her work promoting debut authors is invaluable. Happy Blog-O-Versary, Kristi, and thanks for all you do!" --Andrea Cremer, Author of Nightshade

"Kristi has been with me from the beginning as a great reader, a great champion, a great blogger and an all around great person. I'm so proud to call her one of my blogger-friends...I'm so honored to be one of
her author-friends. Happy Anniversary to The Story Siren, and many thanks to Kristi for her wonderful work!" --Sarah MacLean, Author of The Season

"Kristi has been utterly fantastic about helping to promote my debut novel, A BLUE SO DARK.  Her glowing review sparked immediate interest, encouraging other bloggers to buy and post their own reviews for BLUE.  Beyond that, though, Kristi is so much fun to interact with--I have absolutely adored getting a chance to meet and "talk" to her online!  She's simply one of the best bloggers out of the reasons the YA book blogging community is so vibrant.  I speak for many other YA authors when I say we're so, so lucky to have her." --Holly Schindler, author of A BLUE SO DARK and PLAYING HURT
