Shelley and Kathryn from Tsk, Tsk What to Read for all their support and love throughout the year! These ladies are NERDALICIOUS!

Jessica from The Library Mouse for all her kindness, encouragement, and cheerleading all the way from across the pond. You are a NERD-AWESOME friend!

Lizze Groski from My Life Beyond Labels. We were so grateful to have met Lizze this year and have the privilege of calling her friend. She has such a big heart and always ready to offer support to every author who comes her way.

Katy Sozaeva from Now is Gone. She’s not only a TERRIFIC editor but a great friend and supporter of not only TeamNerd Reviews but authors everywhere.

Jennifer Rainey from Independent Paranormal and RADTASTIC author! She is beyond kind, wonderfully friendly, and has a beautiful soul.

Rola from XO Reads. She is as cute as a button and perfectly silly. She's as much as a book-a-holic as us and has such a beautiful soul. Definitely glad to call her friend!

Raine Thomas, author and friend. She has been nothing but supportive and encouraging from the moment we met her and we can’t thank her enough!

Marilyn Almodovar, author and friend. She is blunt, sarcastic and sassy. Three traits, we gals at TeamNerd Reviews, share and welcome *hehe* She’s always been supportive and a cheerleader.

Grandma Tina, happily adopts all those who come to her and freely offers whatever support you need. She’s got more sass and grit in her little finger than any cowboy we’ve ever met! Thank you, Tina, for all the laughs and all the love!

Jessica Wentz from Jess's Book Blog. She has not only help to promote all things TeamNerd Reviews and participate in many of the themes we've hosted, but she's also been wonderfully kind and sweet.

Brendan from Untreed Reads Publishing, who has not only put up with our constant request for stories, but lengthy emails about life. He has a WICKED sense of humor, too!

Bill Blais, author and friend. His constant encouragement, wisdom, and support has been so very much appreciated.

H.A. Goodman, author and friend. Right from the beginning, Hal not only offered unfailing support but ridiculous and wonderful humor. He’s also a BIG nerd and a weirdo so he fits right in with us here at TeamNerd *hehe*

Special Message from Annabell: I Heart You Shoutout

To my familia: Ana, Nelson, Omar, Xiomara, Jackie, Nitsu, Cris and Natalie. Y’all drive me crazy every day but you definitely keep life interesting and everything good that I accomplish in my life, big or small, wouldn’t matter nearly as much if you guys weren’t with me. Thank you for all the laughs and love. (But seriously, is five minutes of silence so much to ask for?! Maybe the new year will bring me some LOL)

To Bridget Strahin and Eve Coke, two of my best friends and my BIGGEST supporters (outside of God and my parents whom I LOVE greatly). You guys have been AMAZING friends and without your unyielding support, cheerleading, love, and patience, getting TeamNerd Reviews off the ground as well as LUCIFER (SONS OF OLD TRILOGY, #1) wouldn’t have happened quite as well as it has.

We also want to thank EVERY author who has stop by TeamNerd Reviews for reviews, interviews, and guest posts. We APPRECIATE so much the chance to get to read your work and to know each of you. We wish all of you even MORE success in the coming new year and even MORE LOVE!

And BIG thank you to ALL of our supporters! Whether you just stop by on occasion to check out what’s going on with TeamNerd Reviews or actively follow us on the blog, Twitter or Facebook, we are so GRATEFUL to have you and look forward to sharing a whole new year of TeamNerd Reviews with each of you =D

We hope everyone has a FANTASTIC New Year’s celebration with loved ones and friends! God Bless!

~Annabell + Bridget


  1. Thanks, Annabell! I hope "Lucifer" is proceeding apace! Let me know what's up.

  2. Thank you! You know that you can count on me. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Lucifer! Happy New Year, chicas!

  3. Wow. As usual, doubt I deserve this, but feeling very fortunate to be considered in such excellent company, and very grateful for all your tireless work and unflagging optimism. 2012 would have been very, very different without you -- and not nearly as interesting, enlightening or fun! Here's to another great year!
