One Year Anniversary Celebration!



It all started with an idea. Why not make a place where we can bring authors, bloggers, publishers, and reviewers together all in one place?

 
 December 2012 marked the one-year anniversary of the Making Connections group. Since then, we have grown beyond our imagination. Not only have we listed almost 850 books in the original Making Connections group for review, we have also branched off and made a Making Connections - YA Edition group with 200 books listed for review.

Thank you for being part of this group and for helping us celebrate our one-year anniversary! We look forward to see where 2013 will take us.

 These groups would not exist without all of the wonderful bloggers, authors, and reviewers who make Making Connections possible. You guys are the BEST!





To say thank you, we are hosting a HUGE giveaway! 
Plus, stop by each blog on the hop to see exactly what makes Making Connections so great, plus more giveaways and fun! See the complete list below.

  31. Congratulations! I jump in and out of Goodreads. It's been very good to me. My biggest setback is my lack of technical abilities and understanding of how things work. However, I love the people here and love how helpful they've been. I've gotten some great reviews for my historical romance Threads of Betrayal, and it's helped launch people's interest in the Civil War story. Thank you all for your commitment to writing!
