Let's start with who I am. Since I don't think that my life is super important or anything, I will only focus on who I am as an author and in relation to this blog. I have read a TON of books. My senior year of high school I did the math and calculated that I had likely read over a thousand already. I'm sure I have added one or two hundred more in the five years since then. Near the end of my high school career, I had a great idea for a story. I sat on that story for months until I saw a friend writing her own novel and attempting to get it published. That act gave me the inspiration to begin writing my own novel. Now, my novel has just been published and I am working on half a dozen others.
So, why the sudden change in heart? Why am I writing a blog? The answers are simple, but varied. The first answer to this question is the same answer to the question, "Why did I become an author?" The answer is that I wanted to give someone a fantastic, enjoyable adventure. With the number of books I have read and continue to read, I hope that my book reviews will help others find an adventure worth their time and avoid those novels that fail to perform. I got the idea for this blog from a close friend who is planning to start his own movie review blog on youtube. He informed me that if you want to be a success in an area, you have to get up, or sit down, and do something, so here I am.
Keep an eye out for my upcoming reviews of all the books I have read recently and new books as I read them. We will just have to wait and see how often this blog posts. I am thinking it should be semimonthly, but it really depends on what life, and the novels I choose, throw at me.
I hope you enjoy it!
