#ComedyBookWeek Banner Design Competition is open!

#ComedyBookWeek

As we are getting ready to open doors for the Winter 2017 #ComedyBookWeek, it’s time to spruce up our image. We were lucky with the last event to have Kirsty McManus, author of Zen Queen, volunteer her time and design skills to create the current banner.

2016 #ComedyBookWeek Blogger Awards

Nominate your favourite review for the People’s Choice award!

#ComedyBookWeek

The event is over and the results are in!

In addition to 117 featured books on this website, an incredible 74 reviews, interviews, guest posts, and Facebook Q&As have taken place on 28 blogs and other platforms across the week and the globe. I’m not sure of all the locations, but it’s a fact that bloggers and authors from the US, Great Britain, Australia, and India have participated. Let’s all take a moment to shake hands and slap each other on the back, as golden confetti drifts down to the sounds of “We are the champions!” (Or whatever music makes you feel like a winner. I will be cranking up DMX’s “X’s gonna give it to ya!”)

On behalf of all the participating authors, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every blogger that took the time to read and review our books, cared enough to…

Day 6 of #ComedyBookWeek highlights

#ComedyBookWeek

How do I love thee, #ComedyBookWeek? Let me count the ways…

First off, you’ve brought together authors and book bloggers. There’s so much love on webpages all over the Internet, so many people discovering new authors or even genres, that alone makes the event worth it.

Furthermore, you are giving those authors and bloggers much-needed exposure. Forget about being too rich or too thin – you can never have too much publicity.

And finally, you’ve proven that laughter can be found in most unexpected places…birthday parties, graveyards, corporate offices, and even divorce court.

Wait, did I just say “divorce court?” Yep, that’s right –  Jam (Leaves et Livres) review of Can You stiff Your Divorce Lawyer by Portia Porter will prove just that.

Can You stiff Your Divorce Lawyer is a mix of cautionary tales, inside information, and elaborate tongue-in-cheek instructions, that exposes the achilles heel of the legal profession: if…
