About Rosie Amber

rosie gardening 02 smaller

Thank you for stopping by and making a break from the chaos of life. Take a pew and the weight off of your feet for a while. Enjoy a refreshing deep breath and find something about your day to smile about. I find I’m in a reflective mood today and want to thank you for becoming part of my journey if just for a minute or two. Stretch your legs and take a stroll around my blog. If only you could sniff the beautiful roses, but for now please find a little corner of peace where you might curl up with a book and just enjoy the moment.

I was brought up in the beautiful Hampshire countryside. I am married with 2 children and juggle part-time work with full-time motherhood. I was inspired to start blogging to combine a love of reading with a desire to embrace social technology.

I review nearly all the books that I read and post to Goodreads and Amazon US and UK. Plus you’ll see them here on my WordPress blog, Facebook  and Twitter. I’ve even branched out to do 90 second YouTube book reviews to try to reach the reading youth of today.  I have monthly book review pages for Fleet Life magazine ,which distributes approximately 5000 copies per issue in the Fleet area of Hampshire, England, and  The Elvetham Heath Directory which has  2000 copies per issue.

During my wonderful journey on this blog I have been humbled by the support from visitors and readers, together they have nominated me for several awards which I will mention here;

 

Lighthouse award

sisterhood award

Versatile award

  1. Who would hve thought my little goddaughter, who liked to do cartwheels and acrobatics rather than anything else, is now an author. Will certainly order your book.

  3. I love your book reviews. Very simply stated without a lot of hype. Thanks for wandering to my blog and following. I am currently working on getting an improved book cover image. Once that is done I would like to have my book reviewed. I plan to start a more aggressive marketing campaign also. Keep me in mind and congratulations on your own book 🙂

  4. Hello, Nice to meet you! You seem to be winning awards by the dozen, congratulations on that. I was recommended by a friend, who follows you, to stop by and check out your blog. I belong to the same writing group as her and have just self published a book, giving the proceeds to charity. Please take a look if you get the chance. I see you review books, so I can find some tips at the same time. thank you 🙂

  5. Hi Rosie, I’m so happy I found you. I was spending a lot of energy pursing quality reviews instead of writing more. A blogger who provides more than one is such a rare treasure. Your book review team is a wonderful idea. I haven’t encountered other bloggers who do this for authors. Your blog makes it clear that love and support of books are a driving force in your life. You’ve made a cozy spot here for all book lovers. I enjoy the roses!

  7. Hello Rosie
    I have only just found you and I’m so pleased. I live in the garden of England so I understand your love of roses.
    I’m with Tirgearr Publishing and write for the pure love of it.
    I’ve signed up to follow so I’m looking forward to reading your blogs.

  8. Hi Rosie. In the melee that was Bloggers Bash, it was perhaps inevitable that I wouldn’t get to speak to everyone – and you were one of those I missed. In spite of what must now seem like a gaping hole in your day, I hope you enjoyed the event. It was my second and, short of serious illness or injury, I will be at the third. So I hope we will actually speak at the next one. In the mean time, congratulations on coming second in the Book Review category.
    I look forward to reading your reviews – and probably asking for one (when I can get my act together). Keep up the good work – we writers need all the support we can get.

    • Thank you Graeme, I was trying to do the rounds, a daunting process at times, whilst other moments I felt there just wasn’t enough time to get to know everyone. Thanks for dropping by the blog, let’s see what we can find for you of interest.

      • If it’s any consolation, there were only about 20 of us last year, and I still didn’t get to talk to everyone.
        Shelley suggested a “speed dating” element could be included in future, which I thought was a good idea. I’ve passed it on to Sacha. We may only get a couple of minutes, but at least we could speak to everyone.

  10. Hello Rosie. I seem to have found your blog by a very circuitous route via Twitter (which I’m quite new to) and another author tweeting about one of your book reviews. I’m very glad I did! Your site is lovely, as is your name. I can smell your roses (probably in their second flush, as are ours) from here – which is Nottinghamshire. I’ll look forward to following you from now on.

  11. Hi dear Rosie, I just wanted to check in and let you know how much I appreciate it when I see a like from you on one of my posts 🙂 It was such a pleasure to share the Good Deeds weeks with you, and I have so enjoyed witnessing your blog going from strength to strength in its passionate support of indie writers and their books. You are a phenomenon my friend! Hugs and blessings, Harula xx
