Very helpful guidelines, Sylvia. Thanks. I think a person could use them elsewhere, too. Like on my own blog.

Christine - Thank you so much for referencing that post. You wrote a wonderfully thoughtful postof your own. I love John in the movie - I've never read the book, but you made some excellent points. I tried to leave a comment on your blog, but it wouldn't let me for some reason. I'll keep trying!

Hello Sylvia,
I would appreciate if you would consider a book review and /or author interview / book give aways (timing is not a problem for me, I expect my book to be available in February) for my upcoming romance suspense book DEEP BLUE EYES ON THE GREEK ISLES: http://dimitri-fictionromance.blogspot.com/. This link includes my biography, the book synopsis and characteristic pages from the book.

Thank you for your consideration,

Baines: Everton must progress without Moyes
Agen Bola indo11.com reported, Leighton Baines wants Everton to keep improving once David Moyes leaves the club.
Moyes will leave Goodison Park to take charge of Manchester United from next season and Baines believes the Scot will be a big loss.

The England international admitted it would be difficult to get over the loss of Moyes, having worked with him at the club for a number of years.

“It’s a massive loss to lose the manager,” Baines told Everton’s official website.

“It was a sad day after the last game at Goodison particularly because you’ve been working with him for so long. He’s always around, he’s such a hard worker and he doesn’t miss a beat.

“It will be so strange the day we walk through the door and he’s not there. But football clubs live on and we’ll live on, we’ll move on.” as reported by Indo Eleven.

However, Baines was keen to point out that he wants the club to keep progressing in Moyes’ absence.

Debuchy: Premier League is difficult
Agen Bola indo11.com reported, Newcastle defender Mathieu Debuchy has admitted his introduction to English football has been “difficult”.
The Frenchman joined from Lille in January, but saw his team-mates struggle in the Premier League before eventually securing their top-flight status with just one game to go.
While Alan Pardew’s side enjoyed a UEFA run to the quarter-finals, Debuchy admits the season has been hard for the club, but insists he is relishing the challenge of improving.

“The Premier League is a very difficult league to play in, but by the same token it’s an interesting one as well,” the France international told as reported by Indo Eleven.

“Why is the league difficult? It’s because every match is difficult and I do mean every single one.

“You have some of the best players in the world in England right now, so the level in all games is of a really high standard.

Demel proud of West Ham´s home record
Agen Bola indo11.com reported, West Ham’s Guy Demel said he and his team-mates are proud of their impressive home record this season.
This campaign has seen West Ham lose just four times at Upton Park in the Premier League and Demel believes their pride in this record supplied them with the motivation for their 4-2 win over Reading.
The Hammers secured a top-10 finish and kept up their impressive home record with the victory and Demel said the team were determined to finish the season on a high.

“We knew that Reading wouldn’t give us the game, that they would try to come back after half-time and give us a hard time,” he told the club’s official website.

“They did, but we responded and we’ve got a nice record from the home games this season.

“We’re proud of that and we won’t let any team beat us easily at home. We showed the reaction, which was good.”

Demel was particularly pleased with the way he and his fellow players reacted to Reading coming back from two goals down. as reported by Indo Eleven.

“It was a good game on Sunday with a lot of goals scored, but the most important thing for us was to win the game and get the three points,” the Ivorian continued.
