Exciting News & Review of In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson

I am so very excited to finally share my latest new change with each of you!!  I have been hinting at it since I announced the most recent changes to the site and the time has finally come to share it all with you!  If you have been reading my recent posts, I briefly mentioned last week in The Independent Bookstore Cruise Part I that I had lunch with a great group of book-ish people, one being the founder of a new local publishing company known as Walrus Publishing.  Since that day in May, we have been in contact a multitude of times and I can now officially share that I am one of the writers for the *NEW* Walrus Publishing website that launched on August 1st!  Cue the squeals!!!  (Begin Disclaimer -- This is in essence a freelance position in which I get paid per article.  I do not receive reimbursement of any other kind or for additional postings here on this site and do not receive any additional benefits unless otherwise noted.  As always, here at Tif Talks Books I write my own personal thoughts, opinions, views, etc. for the sake of all things literary and all for the sake of one of my passions. -- End Disclaimer)

Today is the day that my first article appears and I want to invite you all to click on over to read it.  I have recently read and reviewed In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson.  In a nutshell, I loved the book, but you want to read the full review to understand why!

As I publish more articles as a writer for Walrus Publishing, I will link up to them here as well for those who wish to follow along.  You can expect to see at least a few a month and the features will include book reviews, author sightings, and other possible literary topics.  I also encourage you to subscribe to the direct site and like Walrus Publishing on Facebook to keep up with the latest news.

Now it is your turn!  Please share your thoughts, comments, and questions that you may have about my new endeavor.

    Books and the Scientist

  2. That is super exciting! I'm so happy for you!!

  3. Congrats, Tif! Very exciting!

  4. Congratulations, Tif! I'm certainly looking forward to reading your Walrus Publishing reviews (sorry, I'm not on Facebook). In The Garden of Beasts sounds pretty good, if I can steel myself to read it (Details of WWII and the Holocaust, especially, always affects me so strongly that I tend to avoid reading about it.

  5. Congrats on the new position. How exciting!

  6. Scientist ... Thank you! I will be reviewing a wide variety! In fact, next month I will have a children's book coming up! BTW, did you get my email???

    Jenners ... Thank you! I'm very excited!

    Lisa ... Thanks!

    Tracy ... Thank you! I will be posting links to my articles here as well, so you won't miss anything! In the Garden of Beasts is set before the Holocaust. Some things are horrid, but it didn't affect me as actual Holocaust books do. It's more of what led up to it.

    IntrovertedJen ... I am!! Thank you!
