Bad author! Bad!

Flaying myself a bit today for being a bad author. I seem to only be able to handle outreach OR writing but not both.  I really enjoy interacting with fans, whether it’s in direct conversation or even seeing someone laugh at a Facebook post I did.  This blog is just a spouting of my random thoughts which seems mildly uncomfortable to put out there (like no one would care about MY thoughts), but I am addicted to other authors who just stream of consciousness onto their posts.  Unfortunately, when I am doing outreach activities I am not writing.  I haven’t quite hit that balance of being a great author.  Finding time to write and to market and interact with fans.

So if I get quiet, be excited because I am writing.  Book two has a way of completely sucking me in and then spitting me out all bedraggled and disoriented. Right now I am reading the second book by Patrick Rothfuss: The Wise Man’s Fear.  If you haven’t picked up the first one: The Name of the Wind, I highly recommend it.  I’m not usually an epic fantasy reader but these books have consumed me.

If you feel so inclined, drop a book recommendation that is NOT urban fantasy in the comments.  I try to stay away from UF when I am writing.
