Welcome to the NEW LOOK!

Hi Readers!!

If you haven't noticed, A Stone's Throw has a new look for the new year.  Plus, I have taken over supervision of the blog too.

So, let me introduce myself.

I'm Julie Deaton, former blogger at Lives and Breathes Book Blog. I have worked with that blog for almost three years now and was asked to take over this one so I couldn't turn down the opportunity.

I'm a true Southern gal, born and raised in North Carolina.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 22 years now and while we have no children, our dachshunds are our babies.  My husband and I enjoy spending time together and love to travel.  We are big horror movie fans and I've pretty much seen them all.  Some of my hobbies are cross-stitching, crossword puzzles, and fishing at the beach.  I am family oriented and love spending time with them whenever we can.  Finally, like a true Southern girl, I cannot live without my sweet tea.

I have beta read for a number of years now besides blogging with Lives and Breathes.  I have worked with many authors while beta reading and in the past few years, I have started my own proofreading service as well.  I can set up beta groups for authors if they need one and I try to help with anything I can to promote authors.

Of course, my favorite thing of all is READING!  I'm a true romance fan because I think everyone deserves a happily ever after.   Last year, I set my Goodreads goal at 150 and I read 161 books, not including beta reads or proofread books. This year, I set my goal for 175 so I'm hoping to get there! 

I hope to be able to bring you a variety of reviews, cover reveals, and anything else that looks interesting. Every day, I also try to post new releases or any sales that I can find because who doesn't love a great deal?

If there is anything you need, please feel free to drop me a line and I will see if I can help.

Thank you and Happy Reading!!
