I've been toying with the idea of posting reviews on my blog, but I've come to the superstitious conclusion that there might be some off-kilter karmic consequence for a writer to become a book blogger, esp if I ever post a not-so-positive review. But, as I do love books and would like to talk about them with other bloggers, I've decided to approach this whole thing from a different angle.
I read for two main reasons: for enjoyment and for instruction. As a writer, I think one of the best ways to improve my craft is to read and explore techniques employed by other writers. What I post about a book won't necessarily be positive or negative review. Rather, I will focus my posts on what I learned as writer. I'm going to call this endeavor Writer's View, as in, the writer's perspective of a book. I'll continue to blog about my indie publishing adventures as well.
Stay tuned for my first Writer's View, which will be of Kevin Hearne's hilarious Iron Druid Chronicles.
