Addiction to Fiction


Avatar of Lynne at Barnsey's Books
I'm Lynne and I'd like to welcome you to my blog. My love of reading began in 1983 when, as a teenager, I was given Graham Masterton's The Pariah as a gift. I was instantly hooked and my addiction to fiction began.

My working background is in the British media industry where I was employed for over two decades at a Media Monitoring and Press Clippings business. Through my working experience I fully understand the impact publicity and reviews can have upon reaching a wider audience.

The books I read and review come from a number of different sources including contacts within the publishing world, Advance Review Copies from specialist reviewer websites, those offered to me through my blog and books I've purchased myself.

I spend a vast amount of my spare time promoting books on social media. Reading gives me immense pleasure and I really wouldn't want to live life any other way.

Finally, just to let you know, my reviews contain affiliate links. This basically means you don't pay any extra for a book or Kindle download, but I receive a few pennies (and I do mean just a few!) if you buy a book through one of my links. Any pennies received are ploughed straight back into buying more books for review.
