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.
