Janie Iturralde

Hello, my name is Janie, I am a wife & a stay at home mom. I have 4 kids, a 7yr. old & 1yr. old Triplets. I enjoy reading, writing, cooking and playing with my kids. When I'm not busy with house work duties and chasing around my kids, that's when you'll catch me wrapped up in a book. Reading relaxes me, and is my way of escaping into another world of fantasy and excitement. When I read a book I like to connect with the story, I like to get lost in it, become part of the character and feel every emotion that the author is describing in it. If I am crying, laughing or even feeling a little giddy from the romance in it that's when I know I am reading a good book.

I started this as a hobby and now after seeing how many great authors are out trying to tell their stories I decided that I wanted to help promote their books.

I read this quote somewhere while doing research for a story I wanted to write…

Good writers don’t necessarily quote Shakespeare, nor do they use four – and five - syllable words. They don’t try to impress their readers with slick verses that rhyme and flow effortlessly from beginning to end. Good writers, like any good communicator, worry about one thing and one thing only: connecting their audience to the story.”  (author unknown)

I always post my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes & Noble. If you would like for me to read your book and review it you can contact me at the above email or via Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads. The icons on the right hand side of the screen will connect you directly to my pages.

Thank you & enjoy.

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.
 The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance With Dragons

Well, there's not much to tell really. I am a happily married 35 yr old mother of five children. Three of which are grown and were gifted to me when my husband and I got married and two of which I carried and bore myself....ugh, the agony. I love to read and pondered at a little bit of poetry writing as a child, teen and young adult. I have always had an interest in Greek Mythology and Fantasy even as a child when reading books and has grown to be my favorite type of book ever since. 
I began reading and reviewing books for authors last summer (June 2012) when another read & reviewer invited me to join a group, WaAr (Wanda's amazing Amazon reviewers). I have met several wonderful reviewers there along with some exceptional authors. I have thoroughly enjoyed helping them by giving my honest opinion of their masterpieces and have also helped by doing a bit of Beta reading as well. I do have a very bad pet peeve when it comes to the grammatical editing of books though. Oh PLEASE don't get me started on that! My favorite saying is "If you don't really want to know then please DON'T ASK." That doesn't mean by ANY means that any author should be afraid of my reading & reviewing of their books. I will always warn you of a bad review first and if you don't wish for me to post it then I will not. It is simply your choice at that point. 
I am very excited to work with Janie and all of the wonderful authors that are apart of this exciting blog page, Crossangels. I hope that we can all have lots of fun and help each other out as much as possible. Happy reading everyone!

I’m a month from turning 18, I love reading paranormal romance books, if I get hooked on a book ill finish it in one day, and I’m open to any story line because I like things that are different, that I haven't read before.
