Happy New Year!!!

Hello Dear Readers! 

Yes, I'm back for a day or two to wish you all a Happy New Year and so that you'll have a fantastic year coming and that it will be full of wonderful things! 

2018 has been a challenging year for me,  but at the same time it was a year of many new doors opening for me, and I am very grateful for all the opportunities that I received! 

First of all, if you've been following my facebook or better said Instagram, as I pretty much moved over there :D I've finished my master degree and started a full-time job at prestigious company, hence,  as I've mentioned way back when I went on a hiatus from the blog, I might have returned, but the job is too demanding right now, hence I don't really have time to continue my reviews. I am still reading, and am still writing reviews, but I don't have time to post them, which is a pity, as I've been reading many many interesting books, and I would like for you to read them as well! But for those of you who have been following me on Goodreads, you might be seeing the reviews over there. I do need to reconcile the reviews there and over here one day, but it's too much to do right now... 

So what are my goals for 2019? First of all, find a good balance between work, my blog and personal life. Apparently, this should not be a myth, and I am eager to find this balance! If I will, I will definitely tell you about it! Secondly, I am thinking of changing a lot of things over here, to make it easier to post, though I may lose the unique layout of reviews that I created, I am ready to sacrifice it until the good times come around, as it takes too long for me to create a post, and I may be actually using Goodreads review layout to post here, tell me what you think about that. I will be adding some of my own design in the layout, but it will be fairly simple and will focus on the review, rather than on other things.  

I have other projects in progress, which may only see the daylight once I am sure people need such a project, hence I am entering a market research phase, which will go for at least half a year. As for my second baby apart from my blog - KC Book Promotions, this project that I started to see whether it could survive on skills I got from university, is still alive, and is already 3.5 years old. In a year and a half, we'll be celebrating our 5 year anniversary. I am super excited about that! While the blog was on a full-blown hiatus, the company has been working on small projects here and there, and I am very proud of what we have achieved, with only me, 2 hours per week and sometimes even less, and lots of dedication! 

I think I'm straying off the topic, but it's been so long since I wrote over here, and I missed it a lot! But anyway, I wish you all Happy New Year! May all your wishes come true and you have a joyful year ahead of you! 

XOXO
Katie

[BOOK TOUR] Death of a Kootch Show Girl by Corey Recko

Cover

 Title: Death of a Kootch Show Girl 

Author: Corey Recko 

Release Date: 25 February 2017



Summary:

It’s Halloween night 1953, the last night of the carnival in rural Ohio, and a stripper turns up dead. Tom Davis, the chief of police, orders the carnies to stay in town while he investigates, but there are no leads to Mary’s killer—no fingerprints on the murder weapon, no blood but Mary’s at the scene, no foreign hairs or fibers—no clues of any kind. Brian Stockton, a reporter for the local paper, hopes this will be his break into the big time, so he begins to investigate as well. But, alas, the killer’s identity eludes him, too. As tensions build, the carnies become paranoid, pointing fingers at each other. Could it be the owner, Bill Harris, the one who discovered the body? Or was it perhaps Gino Guglielmo, the man who runs the kootch show and has a nasty temper? Was it the eccentric clown, Otto Radowski, a man with dark secrets in his past and who just happens to have Mary’s cat? And how did the killer manage to commit such a violent act without leaving a single speck of evidence? Mary certainly wasn’t killed by a ghost…or was she?

Death of a Kootch Show Girl, a murder mystery about a death at a small-town carnival in 1953, is Corey Recko's first novel.
