Q: What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day
become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online
attention, or maybe something very different?
I started this blog for a few reasons. First because I am a writer myself, and I need a vehicle to market myself and my ideas. I have a lot to say about a variety of topics: fiction, urban fantasy, politics, pop culture, feminism, animal rights. What can I say? The world interests me.
Second was the fact that I love reading, and I love free books, and if you start a book blog, you get free books!
Third, there's a lot of anti-intellectualism going on in America. I have personally observed this in the tiny little mountain town I live in. Especially coming from living in big cities all my life, where people have more of a tendency to respect different ideas and perspectives, even if they don't agree with them. This blog is a response to that.
