I am writing this in honor of National Book Lovers Day. The pic is of what books I have been able to purchase since losing my entire collection in an arson fire (my collection, along with my home). It was a hard time and I am still getting over it, but the first thing I went to buy back were as many discounted/used books as money would allow.
I love books, I love to read and I love to write. I run this blog to write book reviews and give author interviews because I want to share the love of words with everyone I possibly can,
If you are an indie author, i want to get your name out there! If you are an established author, I want to post about how you influenced my life.
Since starting this blog, working with Dark Media Online and Books Make Me Happy, I have been blessed to be able to interact with authors who shaped my teen and adult years like Darren Shan, Terri Garey and Ellen Schreiber, plus more! I never once thought I would be able to have these oppoerunities to speak with, review and interview these people who inspired me.
Now, I want to inspire YOU. Get out there, buy a new book, discover a new author, get the word out there about your own work...just do something to help spread the love of words we all have here.
I started reading at about 2 and a half years old, no joke. I loved being read to as a kid. I started writing when I was eight years old, but composed my first poem at the age of three. By 14 I had finished a manuscript. Words--be they poetry, lyrics or especially books--have always been my refuge along with God.
I love that people are LIKING my posts on all the sites of which I am a part. It means a lot to have my appreciation of art appreciated by other art lovers. Thank you all.
