Time to say goodbye...

by Bernadette Geyer on 07/11/12

Dear Friends,

After 15 years, I am refocusing my energies on my own creative writing and will cease regular updating of this web site.

I will continue to post occasional reviews -- in much shorter format -- over at my personal blog, so if you would like to follow me there, I would be very grateful.

The reviews here at the berniE-zine web site will remain as a static "archive" -- because there are so many books here that I believe people should know about, and I want these reviews to remain available to anyone in search of a good book to read.

Thank you for your support over the years. I wish you a lifetime of good reading...

--Bernadette Geyer
