One of the things I’ve been pondering as I start up this blog is what the hell I’m going to write about. A lot of people post book reviews. I like reading them, but I hate writing them. Grad school feels like a long time ago (it was! but let’s not think about that), but still…I think I need to save up what’s left of my reviewing mojo for my critique partner.
I do count on other readers and writers and blogs and, you know, eavesdropping on other people’s conversations for my book recommendations, though. So I offer up the Awesome Authors series! No reviews here, people, just a lovefest. Oh, I suppose I might give a few reasons for my love. But let’s not go overboard. We’ll keep it to…oh, I don’t know…three. I like three. It’s a good number.
Genre, you ask? I’m an equal-opportunity reader. Except Westerns. I don’t have anything against Westerns. I just can’t think of one I’ve read.
It’s not just about the novel, my friend. That’s right! I have woefully few subscriptions to journals right now, but I do love me a short story and even an occasional poem. It’s all fair game. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
