I know I said I'd start getting more blog posts done, but a couple of things have happened this week that have made me break that promise. 1) I finished my novel. Well, as much as one ever finishes. I've written, rewritten and edited the thing and now it's out with a few beta readers. I can't wait to hear back from them. 2) My website went down. This has given me a chance to try to make something much nicer and more professional. The problem is that I'm not really sure how to do that yet. I have a layout in mind, it's just the building it that's a problem. A A) Which means I'm trying to teach myself Drupal. So far my brain doesn't like it, or the amount of time it's taking up. B) Also, if I ever figure the whole thing out, I'll probably be moving the blog from here to my main page. Which will make a difference to all five of you actually following the blog through google. Anyway, all this means is that I've been busy. And there may be changes here soon. Hope they are all good ones.

Follow Friday

Things have been a little crazy for the past week. I haven't had a chance to sit down at my computer for more than a few minutes at a time. However, I'm determined to get things back on track with my writing, starting with this blog.

Today is Follow Friday and it happens to be the 100th blog hop hosted by Alison and Parajunkee. There are giveaways on some of the blogs so check them out.

1. When did you start blogging?

Oh, jeez, that's a bit of a hard question to answer. I've had a number of blogs, including one on Livejournal back in the day. This blog I've had since March 2011. That's when I made the decision to self publish my novel and wanted a blog so that I could use it to meet other authors and maybe some readers.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Getting a chance to talk about books is so much fun. I tend to do it whether or not anyone is listening. Talking about myself is even more fun, and my hope is for other writers to be able to learn from my successes and failures.

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

Growing up, my favorite author was Tamora Pierce. She was my hero. After reading her series Lioness Rampant, I knew I wanted to write YA fantasy.

However, my favorite book that I've reviewed so far would have to be Frostbite by Richelle Mead.

Which reminds me, time to get back to writing some reviews...
