YouTube Review: Gamer Girl

I love when readers do video reviews - it's so much more personal than just written ones (not that I don't like written ones too - I just like seeing who's doing the review sometimes, lol.) Anyway, here's one I found on YouTube today! :)

And yes, she pronounced my last name right. :) First name - in case you were wondering - is pronounced like MARY. Cause my full name is actually Marianne - so it's just short for that!

If you have a video review for any of my books, email me the link and I'll put it up!!
