Author: D.B. Moone

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, and 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 do reviews for traditional and indie writers. 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 [edited] Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs), as well as recently published books. I am a beta reader (finding errors and suggesting improvements), and I provide editing services (message or email me for my editing rates). I read unpublished books by their publication dates, and before reading recently published books. I write my reviews for the reader and not the author; although if you visit my blog www.dbmoone.com (Book Reviews & Musings), you will find that my reviews are very fair to the author. In addition to reading and reviewing, I also conduct author interviews and participate in blog tours. All of my reviews include the author's bio with photo, links to the author's previously written books, 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, Women’s Fiction, et cetera. If you would like to have me review your book, conduct an author interview, participate in a blog tour, beta read, or provide editing services, please contact me at dbmoone2012@gmail.com. I typically have between five to eight books lined up to read and review, and again, I work by publication date. I invite you to follow my blog: www.dbmoone.com (Book Reviews & Musings) as well as my other social media sites: Twitter (@dbmoone), and Instagram (@dbmoone). Note: Due to the number of commitments I have scheduled for book reviews, interviews and blog tour requests, I will not be accepting requests for additional reviews until October 2019. Sincerely, Donna

Book Review: Running Home

“I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
