Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own FEATURED BLOG and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our FEATURE. Each week we will showcase twp FEATURED BLOGGERS from all different genres and areas. Who are our FEATURED BLOGGERS today? Find out below. Just remember it is REQUIRED to follow our two FEATURED BLOOGERS as well as the two HOST BLOGGERS (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy.

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  • (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}

  • (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers

  • Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing--either on Parajunkee's post or Alison Can Read's post. 
  • Grab the button up there and place it in your post. This post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.

  • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed.

  • Follow~Follow~Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”.

  • If you’re new to the FEATURE AND FOLLOW hop, leave a comment on Parajunkee's post and let them know, so they can check out your blog!
This week's FEATURED BLOGGERS:  (Don't forget to follow them!)

Q: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What's the most unique character name you've come across?

A:  Hmm...I must admit, I do love unique names, but not something so unique that it sounds ridiculous. Right now, I am outlining my first erotic BDSM story and the main character's name is Nash. I knew it the first time I said it out loud that my hero HAD to be called Nash. My Heroine is yet unnamed. When picking names, I let the character pick his or her name-it has to feel right.

The most unique name I have seen goes to Stephanie Tyler's Renessme...different, yet I thought it fit the character. I know a lot of peeps didn't care for it, but I thought it was pretty different without sounding too ridiculous.

I also thought JR Ward did a fantastic job in picking out her BDB character's names:

What about you? What names do you find unique?


  1. JR Ward's names are unique! And I like the name Nash! Hope you have a great Friday :)

    Here's my FF!

  3. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I'm following you too. I really like the BDB names a lot. I like that they don't so much sound unusual but they are spelled unusual.

    Have a great weekend!
