headshot2.jpg Welcome to my blog. You are welcome and encouraged to follow my blog. Authors, writers, readers, editors, publishers, agents, bloggers, social media gurus, and all others interested in following my blog are welcome. There are no limitations, ask your mother and grandmother too. I welcome feedback and any recommendations you may have to benefit or improve my blog by emailing me at My intent is for this blog to be beneficial and fun for all.

The following is a short bio to introduce myself to you. I am an English major with a lifelong hunger for writing, which began as soon as I learned the alphabet and my thoughts started traversing from my mind to the pencil I held in hand, dropping words onto the blank piece of paper before me. I moved the words around until they made connections.

I have more than 35 years of professional writing experience. I write in several genres, and I currently have three manuscripts I am working on, completing one at a time, of course. To sum me up: I am a writer, blogger, beta reader, editor, book reviewer, veteran, and soon to be an author. I am a member of the Women’s National Book Association, National Association of Memoir Writers, a professional book reviewer for NetGalley and various publishers.

I began reading and reviewing books to get back into my writing mode after 28 years of military service, as well as to garner name recognition. I read and review Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) and post published books. I do not accept ARCs that have not been through some editing processing. As a Beta reader that’s all part of the gig and I will not turn down a request to Beta read. I read unpublished books by their publication dates, and before I read and review post published books. I write my reviews for the reader and not the author; although if you look through my blog, you will find that my reviews are fair to the author.

I read and write reviews for both traditional and Indie authors. All of my reviews include the author’s bio, links to the author’s previously written books, the author’s website, and all social media sites, as well as links to where the author’s books may be purchased. My preferred genres are Biographies, Memoirs, Health, Mind & Body, Historical & Literary Fiction, Mystery & Thrillers, Nonfiction (Adult), Poetry, Politics, and Self-Help.

If you would like to have me review your book or Beta read for you, please contact me at

I typically have approximately five books lined up to read and review, but again I go by publication date. I also do author interviews and blog tours. I invite you to follow my blog as well as my other social media sites: Twitter (@dbmoone), Facebook (@dbmoonespage), and Instagram (@dbmoone). Please refer to the following note in regards to all requests as of 17 February 2019.

Note: I am not currently accepting reviews or beta reading as I am backlogged with FOUR books to read and review, two-three author interviews to conduct and some blog tours coming up. I will begin taking requests at the end of May, beginning of June 2019.
