If you are not on the page and would like to be, please send your banner to Kelley and she will get it posted.

*** Authors, are you interested in having your books reviewed here? If so please send requests to reviews@ck2skwipsandkritiques.com. We are still a very small site with only a few reviewers as of yet but we'll be happy to see if we have a volunteer for your books. We cannot promise every request sent to us will be filled since we are so small, but we will do as much as we can as fast as we can.

Are you interested in being a reviewer? We are looking for a few more dedicated members to join our staff. We especially need people willing to review historical romance/fiction and various genres of eBooks. We are a small site and have no grand plans for growing into something huge. We do however hope to get a strong reputation for quality reviews and to build good relationships with authors and publishers alike.

Some review experience is appreciated but not required. If you are interested in joining our staff, please submit a sample review to reviews@ck2skwipsandkritiques.com. We will read it and get back to you as soon as we can.

FW: Urgent message!! My friend needs your help!

I normally wouldn't pass these on, just because usually by the time an e-mail goes out, the person's long found, or it was a hoax to begin with. But since the person whose daughter is missing is an author acquaintance of mine, as is the woman who forwarded it to me, I think it's safe to assume this is legit.

I'm passing this along because Marjorie is my friend and her daughter is missing. Any help you can give her right now is appreciated. Thanks!


This is NO hoax... this is MY daughter. Many of you know me and the lists I've sent this to are the only one's I could think of. I am on my way to the sheriff's office so they can disect my computer and maybe crack her yahoo codes and see who she's been chatting with and such.

The Keys to Your Heart

A friend of mine had this on their blog at My Space so of course I had to try it out too. Mine is off in a few places but it's more accurate I think than their's was!

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to good manners and elegance.

In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.

You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You're feeling self centered.

What Are The Keys To Your Heart?
