The folks at City Book Review have been doing book reviews since 2008, more than 20,000 reviews over the years. If you’re an author and need a review, give them a try.
Now that your wrote and published your book, next up is how to get your book reviewed by a professional organization. Many bookstores won’t carry a book that hasn’t been reviewed by someone, and there are fewer and fewer local newspapers that review books any more. So your chances to get reviewed are harder each year. Luckily places like San Francisco Book Review and their sister publications have stepped up to help authors with book reviews, marketing, cover design and SEO.
Twitchs push to broaden the scope of its video game streaming site to include more types of content continues today with the launch of a new section on its site called Communities. Designed to cater to users unique interests, this section initially contains hundreds of categories, someof which build on top of gamers interests as well as those that dont. Here, youll find dedicated sections devoted to topics like cosplay, drawing, painting, comedy, food, music and more. Plus, Twitch says users can set up their own communities, if they choose.
Of course, many communities will also focus on specific gaming titles, types of gaming, like retro, or activities, like speedrunning.
The launch follows a number of changes to the Amazon-owned streaming site over the last year or so, which have put an emphasis on catering to the gaming audience in new ways, while also attracting new users. In fall 2015, the company debuted a new channel calledTwitch Creative, which allowed gamers to show off theirartistic endeavours that is, their game-inspiredpaintings, drawing, songs, costumes and more.
Given the expanded scope of content on the site today, its not surprising that Twitch would now try to organize these many different communities to make them easier to find.
But the change is not just about enabling better discovery, users are also allowed to start their own communities, which are then added to the directory listing.
Weve heard from our streamers and viewers that they want the freedom to form specific groups, organizing around topics such as speedrunning, esports, cosplay, and painting, said Sheila Raju, Product Marketing Manager at Twitch, in a statement. With Communities, we are giving our users the power to create groups of their choosing, while providing creators with another tool to expand their audiences. If you have an interest thats shared among others, Communities is where that collective can live.
These communities can be personalized by their creator, each with their own specific rules, a customizable banner and avatar, and they can have their own designated Community Leader. The leaders will also have access to moderation tools for the channels in their communities, which gives them permission to ban or timeout channels that go against their communitys rules.
Inside the communities, theres also a stream wall which displays the live content from creators who are choosing to broadcast to the community. For broadcasters, associating themselves with a community could give them more exposure for their content, allowing them to pick up more fans.
The communities are all public, too, which means that viewers and creators alike can see the list of channels that are currently broadcasting at any time. This helps them to figure out if the community is right for them.
The new Communities directory is available today, in beta, to all Twitch viewers and broadcasters.
Americans making their way to settle in new areas of the country back in the 1800s had little to rely on when it came to meals. They had to get creative with the meager options,but you’d be surprised how many pioneer-era recipes from back in the day still look scrumptious today.
That’s why looking back at how folks survived in that era, and again later during the Great Depression, is the perfect wayto find budget-friendly, yet still delicious, dining options for you and your family. In fact, you might even recognize a few of these as staples in your kitchen thatwere passed down in your family through the generations.
Either way, I wouldn’t mind chowing down on several of the pioneer-era recipes listed below! I also wouldn’t recommend looking at them on an empty stomach unless you want to hear your belly growl.

Yep, this recipe uses actual mud. Butdon’t worry we would obviously never recommend that you consume dirt. You actually might want to substitute cinnamon and keep the skins on for a sweeter version.

Folks back in the day found the perfect use for milk that was about to go totally bad so it didn’t go to waste.
Ingredients: Milk Heavy cream
Instructions: Let the milk clabber, or sour and curdle slightly, and skim the cream off the top. Place the clabbered milk over very low heat and cut into chunks. Use a colander to press out the whey and wipe it away. When the clabbered milk is firm, rinse with cold water and squeeze out the liquid while forming it into a ball. Crumble into a bowl and add thick cream.

Since it was obviously difficult to keep fresh meat while traveling, it was often cured into jerky that could be used in various dishes.
Ingredients: Chopped jerky Fat or grease Flour Salt Pepper Milk

Place the bones back into the pot and add the peppercorns, onions, and celery. Simmer until it has boiled down to about a quart of stock thenstrain. Add the milk or cream and bring to a boil again.

I make one of the most popular mirror glazed mousse cakes. It takes three days to make one mousse cake due to very unique and rare techniques used to produce them. They are made of natural ingredients, real cream, milk, fruits and berries, premium chocolates and top-class biscuits. It is all made from scratch. If it is made correctly and covered with mirror glaze, which is also based on chocolate, then you can even see your reflection in the cake.
