Proud to be part of the Ace/Roc Star Street Team

I was fortunate to be chosen to be a member of the Ace/Roc Star Street Team. What this means is that I’ll be getting copies of recent and upcoming titles from Ace Books and Roc Books, who are part of the Penguin Publishing group. Aside from reviews, there may also be some goodies and potential giveaways for followers of Reading 1000 Lives. So keep your eyes open for future news.

I appreciate this opportunity because I haven’t read much from their catalogs in the past, and have been uncertain of where to start off, particularly with so many giant series. So I hope readers of this site will appreciate my point of view as someone who isn’t already a fan of a successful author or who can honestly say how well a novel may work on its own.

And of course this gives me the chance to jump right into debut authors or new series and get the word out, whether my reaction is positive or negative. If you have a favorite author from Ace/Roc I’d love to hear about it, or a title you are looking forward to. I won’t be able to read all they send, so your thoughts could help with decisions.

Here is the first mailing that I received:
