Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for The Faith Machine! As a newbie to blogging, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Storytellers on Tour for letting me get involved, as well as furnishing me with an electronic copy of the book in return for this fair and unbiased review.
Hello all! In what might seem like a bizarre decision given that this site's stats for the last week have somehow more than quadrupled any week's prior to this one (I seriously have no idea why, the site has had more unique visitors than I have Twitter followers and I don't know where they've all come from), I will be moving my content over to my new site, www.infintespeculation.wordpress.com. The suite of statistical analysis that WordPress offers, as well as the fact that said statistics are saved for longer than a week, means it's probably the best option for me. I've put quite a lot of effort into the design of the site too, and am really proud of how it's turned out. Especially the logo, I am genuinely surprised at how well that turned out! All future reviews will be posted there, and my plan is to move the content from this site there too (hopefully scheduled to all go live simultaneously, let's see if that works). The final post here will be the blog tour for Tone Milazzo's The Faith Machine, which will go live on Infinite Speculation at the same time.
I've really enjoyed my time blogging on Weebly, and have learnt a lot. Thanks to everyone who has read any of the content on here, as well as everyone who has shared it, retweeted it, quoted it and so on. I really feel like I've connected with people, and hope to continue to do so on my new site. I'd love it if you could follow me on my blogging journey!

Yes, the picture rather spoils the surprise, but I had to put something there and it certainly wasn't going to be me pulling my best "eager" face. Read on to find out more about the books I'm impatiently waiting to get my hands on!
