I’m an avid reader (I blog about literature over at The Alliterates) and a manic writer. My reviews are blunt and to the point, but hey, I’m an emotional reader, and I write them almost immediately after I set a book down so I don’t lose the “mood”. If you read my books, I fully welcome the same honesty. My books are not my babies; you will not hurt my feelings. In fact, some of the best insight into issues with my work has come from the most critical reviews.
I plan on posting at least a chapter a week of whichever book I’m currently working on, and I urge you to follow along. Like I said, my words are not my offspring. I welcome any and all feedback; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Feedback fuels my hunger, makes me a better writer, helps shape my stories, and catches editing and storyline misses on my part. So please, leave comments. I welcome all non-hostile dialog. Even if we don’t see eye to eye on a book. Even if we don’t see eye to eye on one of MY books. I love literature, and love discussing it with others.
A note to trolls: I will immediately delete your comment if I find it offensive, because I have zero desire to engage in online bullshittery.
My writing will remain free to read for all. If you want to donate to my PayPal fund, you’ll find a link on the right side of the screen, along with a description of what I plan to use the contributions for.
